American IPA


This is a recipe I developed for the Red River Rivalry 2005. aka Texas vs OU game. Texas went on to win the national title this year. :) Beer has a beautiful burnt orange color. Nice hop bitterness w/out over powering the smooth maltiness. The Amarillo finish gives a distinct nose. A favorite amongst friends!

I like this beer, and it doesn't hurt that this was developed the year the Longhorns went on to take the National NCAA football title with Vince Young.
