Experimental IPA #1

Hey Fluke-sters!

Follow along with us as we develop a new recipe for our house IPA.  This is going to be an on going experiment to create a hop explosion that is still well balanced.  We want a beer that has huge hop flavor and aroma but without the extreme bitterness.  That's why we loaded the flame out and dry hopping schedules with almost 10 ounces of hops!!!

Cheers,

Fluke Brew Crew
