This beer turned out quite nice. Lots of citrus-y hops flavor and aroma with a decent, bread-y malt backbone. It's a very easy drinking beer. I undershot my OG a bit on the first go, and it came in around 6.8%, which actually may be what I go for next time. It's much more of a bigger APA by today's standards, but if you remember the IPA's of the '90s, that's pretty much what they were compared to today's IPA. I'll definitely be brewing this again, with a few tweaks to the original.

Question for you

Doing this recipe this weekend. YouTube vid was great and very helpful. I'm gonna go back n watch again, but did I miss the hop additions?? Did you use whole or pellets? Thats all. Cheers
