I love this beer and am enjoying the discussion above. I’m starting my research to make a beer that has some of the qualities I enjoy in war hog, particularly the strong passionfruit aromas, the very light straw colour, smooth bitterness and great malt-hop balance that makes it just as delicious on a cold winter night as in the summer sun.

Coodgee’s comment resonated with me because S&W PA and war hog are probably my favourite beers and I find them similar even though they are massively different in IBU and ABV.

Has anyone made any clone attempts in the past year that are worth sharing? If I have any success I’ll add my experience here.

I brewed a double IPA that tasted in my opinion very similar to warhog.
Hops used were warrior for bittering for 60, colombus , simcoe, amarillo & citra (shit loads of) at 10 min then again at 0 min. Heavily dry hopped with simcoe , Amarillo & colombus for 3day before cold crash.
Yeast was US05.
Grain bill included med crystal, carapills, munich and small amount caramber but you could deff omit this to make it closer to warhog. I wasn’t attempting to clone , but it did taste very similar in my opinion.

I've brewed two clones of warhog, with decent success when compared side by side with the original.

This version got me close enough that I don't feel the need to tweak it any further.
