Super hoppy IPA bordering on the IIPA style. Made several batches now and it never lasts for long.

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes I like this as soon as it is carbonated. Others like it aged a little so the hops mellow a little. Personally, I like the super hoppy flavors.

Procedure Mash at 150 for 90 minutes. 75 minute boil and then a dry hopped in secondary. I use O2 prior to pitching for 1 minute. IMPORTANT NOTE: I listed Super Alpha as the hop. Summit is not listed in the recipe selector list. Summit should be used in all instances instead of Super Alpha.
