Notes

Based on this recipe - https://beersmithrecipes.com/viewrecipe/1304738/knifey-spoony-nz-liberty-knife-party-ipa

Full-noise West Coast IPA, orange/amber colour, great balance between bitterness, hops and caramel maltiness with strong citrus and tropical fruit aromas. Lacking the crystal clear flavours and punch of the original, but very tasty. Aroma isn't as passionfruity as original. Malt and sweetness are pretty close. Bitterness is slightly stronger than original. Colour may be a touch too dark, evaluating as sediement clears.

Revisions for next time: Consider a different yeast. Mash 1 degree warmer. Swap in 20g of citra and reduce amarillo to 10g at end of boil. Malts good but perhaps reduce vienna slightly. Observations: During brew - Wort efficiency was slightly low, potentially mash 1 degree higher. Used preheated mash tun on an average/warm day. - A lot of suspended protein. May be candidate for gelatine finings. - West Coast No. 5 yeast used. May trial other yeasts as recipe is refined. End of primary - Perhaps needs more citra, may swap in 20g of citra at 1 minute and reduce amarillo to 10g? Hadn't dry-hopped yet though. - Malt profile excellent, no changes suggested other than it is perhaps slightly too dark/red - waiting for sediment to settle before making final call on this, may clear lighter.
