Aussie Home Brewer - Error
The controller XenForo_ControllerPublic_Thread does not define an action called PirateLifeThrowbackCloneSessionIpa.
Thanks for that. Fixed the link.
I like the sound of your first attempt description. As say a home brewed improved version of the TBIPA. My impression of that beer is that its close to IPA character only being at 4% but not quite there because its 4% etc. Lacking that extra body and fullness so the bitterness is a bit too sharp as a result. Thanks for sharing your experiment/recipe etc. I rely on Hop stands for the big dose to eliminate o2 exposure possibilities. Go the Sessionable IPA thing tho. Big flavor beers at 4% better for health, I think?
Thanks! Yes it's meant to have the balance (i.e. quite bitter) and hoppiness of an IPA, but without the high alcohol content. The attraction for me is I can have a nice hoppy beer or two on a school night without feeling the effects as much.
I hear you on eliminating O2 exposure - it's something I've been taking a lot of steps to reduce. I wouldn't have thought a hop stand would be able to completely replace dry hopping though - have you made any IPAs this way?
There's quite a few session IPAs about these days. I haven't heard the term "SIPA" before, I think you may have coined it just now
