I picked up the last carton of this yesterday at 1st Choice for $50. I was pretty impressed with the taste. They use Simcoe, Chinook and Citra hops and it is 5%ABV. Has anyone tried it or had a go at cloning it?

Tried it and personally hated it. I found it to have a very forward bitterness with zero complexity. I like a fair whack of bitterness, but it has to be complemented.

I would try a very simple grain bill (pale with <3% crystal), and hop to about 40 IBU with those hops, with at least 60-70% of the IBU's early in the boil.
