This was my first attempt at an American black IPA and I figured I should go big with the hops. I love this particular hop combo, but whatever your favorite is would work as well.
Recipe inspired by Collaboration #2, a collaboration between Boulevard Brewing Co. and Deschutes Brewery. Part witbier, part IPA, loaded with character.
If you enjoy the Lagunitas Brewing Co.'s A Little Sumpin Sumpin, then you should enjoy this homebrewed version. Smooth malt background with the help of wheat and Victory® malt and a huge hop profile.
As the name implies, this is a smooth version of a rye IPA. It has the characteristic “snap” from rye and rye malt, but this is not as pronounced as in some rye beers. If you’d prefer a more “in your face” version, try adding a pound (0.45 kg) of rye malt to your mash.
An older IPA recipe from our archives. Feel free to substitute with different hops or keep them the same to remember what an IPA was like before the IPA-mania.
Amarillo® hops can be a tough one to find in the market these days. If you do happen upon some, this is a great red IPA for using them.
There are many different ways to go with fermenting this recipe from Sacch Trois to Brett Trois or any favorite strain of yours. Either way, the Centennial and Citra® hops should please any hop fan.
