Mad Max Light IPA

Source: Tim Neall
Recipe added: 11/23/97

This is a light pale ale. I made it from items left in my brew closet, hence the high proportion of corn sugar. It actually came out halfway decent. The body was a little thin, which could be avoided if extract is used in place of sugar. The hopped extract gave it a pleasing amount of bitterness and the Cascade at the end of the boil gave it a little aroma and flavor. Not to bad. To improve it I would change corn sugar to extract, use liquid yeast, and probably up the hops a little bit.
