No this is just a Tribute.

Brew Dudes
This just shows how difficult this brewing caper is and full credit to Kelsey for being able to consistently replicate his Red Ale. This is still an exceptional beer, probably in my top ten, but not a clone of my greatest beer ever which is what it was meant to be.

There are slight differences, a 2 point difference in FG and one week in the FV. Still like the grain bill and hop schedule. Same recipe just missing the shot of Mango that my greatest beer had, this was the same shot of Mango that others said they don't get from Mosaic. So perhaps my greatest beer ever was a freak. It does have a lovely lingering fruitiness on the palate and still has my favoured bitter grapefruit upfront. More versions attempts to come.

Couldn't remember the greatest beer you've ever made?

What? Not your “best beer ever”?

Your standards are slipping Scottie!

Have you tried brewing the first thing that comes to your head? Just might happen to be the best beer you've ever brewed.

at some of the replies here. I can't take too much credit for replicating that recipe over and over again though, I suspect with most of the flavor coming from the 6.5% Caraaroma that it's not as difficult as this recipe of yours. I haven't been able to replicate my early batches of the SNPA clone lately either. Other styles like Bo Pils and stouts and porters come out the same every time but those pale ales are a bit elusive at times.

I can picture Dave Grohl saying:
