American IPA


This is a light orange colored beer with a very fruity, strong hop taste and a wonderful white head. Not too bitter, but very hoppy. This IPA has a strong smell of ripe grapefruit and is unlike any beer I've tasted. Delicious, refreshing, fruity, bright, sweet, bitter and happy, this is a fun beer to drink any time of the year.

I have made this recipe about 5 times now and even converted the last two batches to all grain. It is a favorite of mine and always gets good reviews for aroma and taste when sharing with friends.
