Notes

The clone attempt came out great, great balance of hop and malt. I took the listed ingredients on the bottle, and made an IPA out of those parts. I most likely didn't get their hop schedule correct, due to the huge difference in hop profile. Next attempt may include dry hopping rather than just using in boil or @ flame out.

Comparing to Black Raven's version: I received comments saying they preferred mine over the real Tricksters, giving attributes of a less bitter profile, less harsh and more crisp.
