    A little off the wall ...... but how 'bout
    a single malt IIPA with Golden Promise .... mash around 152... single decoction to mash out .... a boatload of Centennial ... and a high gravity Belgian yeast?

    would the belgian/farmhouse ipa be similar to ceannt ipa idea with the Belgian yeast?

    I had planned one last year with Belgian yeast and at the last minute scrapped the Belgian yeast for WLP001

    Commercially speaking any examples of what you guys are talking about?

    i suppose, though i probably wouldn't go with centennial.

    nope. i haven't had any. i was just thinking it would be different from what you already have, yet still satisfy the craving for an ipa. i've had a couple belgian/farmhouse pale ales, but i didn't care for them much. i think it only works with the higher gravity and ibus of an ipa.

    Yep. That's what I thought but wanted to see if I was on to it. I think you and FZ are thinking same idea here.

    I love Raging Bitch and one of my favorite IPA's is Founders Centennial IPA (single hop). Time to do some research.

    try to make a Zombie Dust clone. basically a clean, simple ipa, like founders centennial, but single hopped with citra.

    This also sounds really good. I have wanted to make a all citra hop ipa for a long time.

    I think I am going to make both of these. maybe a double brew day soon.

    @frydogbrews do you have a Zombie Dust recipe? Or something close? I have found a few recipes on the webs but have a little concern on the 60L being used. For a super clean ipa I was thinking I would go no higher than 15 to 20L and use very little.

    here is a recipe I found. I will start another thread for both beers. 60L just seems wrong for a super clean IPA. I have never had this beer so I am flying blind.

    11 lbs 12.0 oz Canadian 2-Row Malt (1.9 SRM) Grain 1
    16.0 oz Munich 10L Malt (10.0 SRM) Grain 2
    8.0 oz Caramalt (12.0 SRM) Grain 3
    8.0 oz Caramel Malt 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 4
    8.0 oz Melanoidin Malt (26.5 SRM) Grain 5
    0.8 oz Citra [12.0%] - First Wort Hops 6
    1.0 oz Citra [12.0%] - Boil 15 min Hops 7
    1.0 oz Citra [12.0%] - Boil 10 min Hops 8
    6888474.33 tsp Whirlfloc Tablets (Irish moss) (Boil 10 min) Misc 9
    6888474.33 tsp Yeast Nutrient (AKA Fermax) (Boil 10 min) Misc 10
    1.3 oz Citra [12.0%] - Boil 5 min Hops 11
    1.0 oz Citra [12.0%] - Boil 1 min Hops 12
    0 pkgs English Ale (White Labs #WLP002) Yeast 13
    3.0 oz Citra [12.0%] - Dry Hop 7 days Hops 14

    The Raging Bitch is a very simple beer. I like it. One thing I have learned is it is not dry hopped. I may change that for my recipe.

    Basically it has a bunch of us 2 row and a little bit 60L and seems they either use a wit yeast or a trappist yeast. Not sure which is correct yet.

    Would a wit give off that Belgiany funk? There is no mistaking RB as having a Belgian yeast.

    yeah, don't use 60L in a Zombie Dust clone.
    i wouldn't go any higher than 15L, for sure. otherwise, just follow any other recipe for two hearted or founder centennial, but use all citra instead.
    its delicious.

    i wouldn't bother first wort hopping it either. that's someone trying to make something more complicated than it is

    in my 5 gallon batch i used something like 1/2 oz for bittering, then 4 oz for flavor spaced between 20 minutes and 5 minutes, and another 2 oz at flameout.
