Double IPA

Clear IPA

Building on my Citra IPA recipe, I decided to step up the OG a bit and also cut back on the dry hopping with the Citra (1oz in 3gal for 1 week was too much).  So, going for a clear beer and avoiding the overpowering grapefruit from Citra I simply added some whirlpool flavor hops and an extra pound of grain.

The results are excellent.  I couldn’t really be happier with this, and I got a seal of approval from my oldest son (26 yrs) who is a huge IPA connoisseur.
