Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons

American IPA


This beer turned out amazing! This thing is an enormous beast of hop madness and kick you in the nuts flavor that warms as it goes down and keeps you begging for more. There is one warning I will give: if you aren't a complete hop head, stay away from this beer. It turned out JUST as I hoped it would. Extremely fragrant and complex hop aroma that blends an intriguing bouquet of citrus and piny scents. These same flavors jump out as you take a sip and then the big, fat malt backbone hits and balances it all out perfectly. You're probably wondering how a beer with this many IBUs can possibly even be drinkable.
