American IPA


One of my goals as a brewer is to come up with a beer so bitter and hoppy that no one will drink it but me. This was an attempt at that, but I don't think it was quite bitter enough.

At one of our club meetings, there were about 6 "hop-heads" that liked it. Everyone else just thought it was _way_ too bitter. The Columbus hops were great! I will be making this beer again and again.
