Deebee's Imperial IPA is the bomb, no joke.

You heard me right. Deebee's Imperial IPA is insanely delicious, more so than most commercial beers, more so than anything at a beer fest, more so than most of my brews, more so than most of your brews. Try to arrange a trade with this dude, his beer could replace the currency of any number of developing nations. Anyone who says S-04/Whitbread-B is a bad choice for hoppy brews...suck it!

But beware--in case you hadn't already figured this out from my hyperboles--a single bottle will get you drunker than you've been in a long time.

Thank you Deebee, this stuff is really, REALLY good. Brew on.

That is one hell of a mouth watering review! I feel like cracking open a fruit bomb IPA and it's only 10.46am.

Yes, I'd love to drink that heavenly nectar again, though my delayed response may have forfeited the freshness goal!

Cheers,

That does sound pretty fantastic, Deebee. You're free to bung one my way, if there is any left. I'm kind of just down the road, Buskerud. I'm sure I have something to exchange, beer or pure fresh yeast that's directly pitchable to your specification 8)

To be fair, if I had a recipe judged so highly by Seymour, there is no chance I'd divulge it. That would be exploited for more than honest pleasure :|

True. I like the S-04 twist. Have to give that a go.

So4 is always underestimsted for hoppy brews.
I choose it ahead of us 05 every time.

Not in my experience? I find SO4 does mute the hops. But if you throw enough big American hops in they'll overcome that to a great enough extent.

Well, this is dry hopped with 2.5gl wach of nekson and chinook BUT the citrussy taste is not dominating by any means.
Had i used a yeast to make the hops more pronounced i would have used Nottingham ahead of 05.
Horses for courses.. i dont like the yeast in the same manner as i dont like or use cascades.
For me this beer was as hoppy as i needed it and still.let the spiceness of the rye come through.
Seymour drank this when it was about 10 weeks in the bottle. Personally i found it better at about 5-6.

I had a Riwaka beer this year made with S04 and it was lovely. Different things work, and we all have different tastes. I just do believe that S04 provides a more muted hop finish than US05. But there are other factors to consider in choosing a yeast for a beer.
