I'm looking at doing a clone of Sonoma from Track Brewing in Manchester, I've got the ingredients pretty much sorted (I hope !) but does anybody know the IBU's ? Its described as having a soft, pithy bitterness finish, which I would agree with.

Thanks

I'd say high 30s too. Bittering hop might want to be right. Not sure what they bitter with. Not had Sonoma recently but when I used to drink it I was pretty sure they used Vermont yeast, which is distinctive, and Sonoma struck me as that kind of beer.

My impression is, that like so many beers, has changed to meet current trends and has become softer and hazyier, and would pitch it around the low thirties.

Or, canned and cask are two different beers. I had some cans recently and was a little underwhelmed, they lacked the crispness I remember from pre-covid cask, very much like a chloride leaning water profile.
