Description
Full bodied American IPA with a sharp citrus hop bite. Heavy dose combo of Cascade and Amarillo give this IPA a strong grapefruit aftertaste. My first original all grain recipe.

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes Full bodied, goes down smooth. Huge hoppy after taste, will leave grapefruit on your palate and hops on your breath, if you like hops you'll like this. My OG was more like 1.065, think this is because I didn't have a high enough strike temp during mash causing me to extend the time. Beer is still awesome, I'll try this again as a 10 gallon batch with a yeast starter and try to hit 1.075. P.S. I believe my abv is just over 7%
