Notes

2-3 packs (depending on the package date) Imperial yeast in 2000mL starter @ 1.037

Start primary at 65°F and slow rise to finish at 69°F. Hold for D-Rest and check gravity. If you pitched enough healthy yeast, this beer will finish between 1.012-1.014.

Heavy doses of dry hops can be added all at once or in 2 different additions. 65°F is a good temp to hold during dry hopping. The Citra used in this version, are LUPOMAX from Yakima Valley Hops, which is why the AA% is higher than usual. If you sub out for regular Citra, adjust accordingly for the lower AA%. Also, if you can't get Galaxy, Mosaic is a good alternative.

After 2-4 days of dry hopping, begin crashing the temp over the course of 4-5 days, down to 35° and hold for cold conditioning. I usually do 2-3 yeast/hop dumps over the course of the crash. Gelatin can be used for fining if you like.

This beer has taken gold medals and blue ribbons at many comps in both the American IPA and Double IPA categories. It regularly scores between 40-45 out of 50.

I have very soft, clean water in Salem, Oregon so I run it through a charcoal filter to remove chlorine and then add the small amounts of CaSO4 and CaCl2 in the mash to harden the water & lower the pH, which allows the hops to shine in the finished beer. Adjust accordingly for your water profile.
