Tasting: After 2 weeks in the bottle at 65 degrees it's absolutely delicious. Best beer I've done! Great hop bitterness, flavor and aroma, w/ a medium body and maltiness. GREAT head retention all the way to the last sip. If it's this good after only 2 weeks, oh man... 76 IBU via Tinseth. Just shy of a copper color. Beautiful. I'm happy.
