Beach Lake Extreme IPA

Source: Michael Miller
Recipe added: 11/03/04

Extreme but balanced malt, caramel, hop bitterness flavor and aroma. As my Grandma Fishhead would say 'It'll knock you naked boy' - ~99 IBU (est.) - ~8.5% ABV - Medium copper color (SRM 18) - Golden White head and lace. This is my house beer for my homebrew addict friends. I was trying to get a Stone Ruination Clone, but couldn't get Simcoe and Anthanum Hops - made double SSoS instead. Always on tap, absolutely not for homebrew newbies, hop bashers (you know who they are) or style nerds. Cellar temp reveals much more of the malt and hop flavor than when fridge cold.
