Searching for the line between "hobby" and "obsession"

Wet Dog vs. Summit EPA

I recently did a comparison of my Wet Dog pale ale with Summit’s Extra Pale Ale. Though I wasn’t aiming to do a clone brew, I think I did a pretty good job with the malt bill as those aspects of the flavor were pretty close.

Summit’s brew was a weeee bit more attenuated (I’d use an English ale yeast if I were to try and get it spot on) and my brew notably lacked the strength of Summit’s bittering hop addition. Also regarding the hop bill, I’ve read Summit uses Horizon, Fuggle and Cascade in EPA. I used Centennial and Cascade in mine, so that also explains some hop flavor difference between the two as well.
