Notes
WLP007 - Dry English Ale yeast. Love this yeast for IPAs: it ferments clean, fast, and drops super clear, super quick. Fermented at 62F for 6 days, then raised the temp to 68F for 8 more days to help the yeast finish up.

Dry Hops:
Racked to secondary then:
4oz Amarillo/Citra/Centennial/CTZ (1oz each) for 5 days
3oz Amarillo/Citra/Simcoe (1oz each) Added day 5 for 4 more days
Rack to bottling bucket/keg on day 9 in the secondary.

The recipe for this beer started off as something close to Pliny, and evolved into the recipe above. I love using Amarillo, Simcoe, and Citra together, especially for dry hopping.

Tasting Notes: Aroma is heavy citrus and tropical fruit with lots of oily, resiny character. Taste is more of the same. A little malt sweetness up front, then boom: Hops. Finish is dry and bitter, but the bitterness isn't harsh and doesn't linger.




took first and scored a 43 at a BJCP competition

I did a completely different hop schedule, but used your malt bill and yeast choices. FANTASTIC fermentables right here for any IPA.
