Calidelic Mandarin IPA needs some refinement before taking on NB Citradelic.  My Hoppy CAL is weigh two dark (gee, I wonder if that is because I put C120 in it?:blink:).  I also need to lighten the body somehow (maybe flaked corn, other adjunct or booster?).  It does have really nice flavor and bitterness, but it just seems heavier on the palate (odd, considering the fact that this recipe is based on CALight).  As for aroma, Citradelic gives a nice piney, fruity sensation, while Calidelic has an almost clovey, wheaty aroma (out-dated hops?).  I will try this one again this summer, but for now, cheers!?

I bought some mandarins today....🍊🍺🤔

Round two with refinements? My Tangerously Hoppy has been one of my better brews. I used a combo of mandarin and tangerines. Last time I put in a supply order I got a bottle of tangerine peels to try another.

I'll chuck the Caramel 120 and go with something a little lighter, then substitute Pale DME for LME.  Other than that, I think I've got all those hops on hand for a mid/late summer session IPA.:)

I've used flaked corn with the CAL and was happy with the results.

 

I've got a Cream Ale recipe in the works and I'm saving my flaked corn for that but that would work well.  I ended up using a little Belgian biscuit malt along with the 2-row, then went hop-happy with Summit, Citra, Simcoe and Mandarina Bavaria.🍊🍊🍊
