this recipe will produce an outstanding american i.p.a. i
suggest that you keg it and drink it fairly young although i have
tried some after 4 months in the keg on dry hops and is still very hoppy
although it did lose some aroma qualities. if you try this recipe please
e mail me and let me know what you think,cheers.
