Previously brewed BYO Clone of St. Arnold's Elissa IPA. Really liked "soft" mouth feel. Had beer at local brewery which had similar mouth feel with Topaz hops. I really liked it. So thought I would use same recipe with Topaz hops instead of Cascade. My first brew session I followed to a T. Next time will likely reduce the DME to 5 lbs. to keep lower alcohol content.
Just like the ascending notes of an arpeggio, this red IPA increases with flavor with every sip! Simcoe and Amarillo hops lend a balance of orange marmalade, dank, and citrus notes. Stir in the complexity of Mosaic hops on the finish and you're left with a drinking experience that will have you yearning for more.
