Default Basil IPA 08'er is Finally Here!

Pulled the first pint on Saturday morning after 2 days of blast-carbing. Holy god, this stuff gets better every year. I proceeded to drink like 4 more pints. It's that good.

In the past, I'd attempted to use "cups" as the measurement for the basil, but this time around, I actually counted the leaves. They're not in this recipe right now, but when I get around to posting it in the actual recipe section, I'll get my notes from brewday and list the # of leaves for each addition. I think there were 5 total additions, all in the last 20 minutes, and I think each one was roughly 5 leaves. This method should be much more helpful in getting consistent results every vintage.

So..... What did this taste like? I saw the Bison version of this last night, but didn't try it. I did like their ginger bread ale.
