Description
I made this Pale for my hop head father, and it won an award. I let him name it and now it is known around these parts as the Bushman Brew. Don't worry it's not named after the "Commander in Chief".

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes Not as bitter as I thought it would be. Surprisingly balanced. One guy at my homebrew club requested drinking the yeast from any bottle we opened due to the hoppiness that it had.
