Description
American IPA loaded with hops - and only a 30-minute boil! All late hops and late extract make for an awesome combination of freshness without that extract "twang"! -Note that my calculations (Beersmith) and past brews (twice) have this at an OG of 1.073 with about 73 IBUs.

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes HOPS, HOPS and MORE HOPS! This is a REALLY good American IPA with hops all the way through from start to finish. The Munich extract and caramalt give it the backbone it needs for balance but the best part is the serious lack of harshness in the firm bitterness. Finishes dry and you're ready to dive in for more.
