A definite bittering dry to mouth taste, not much in the way of head retention. I will try it again but only in a 5 gal batch.
The partial mash (or all extract, can't remember) I brewed laced very nicely. I thought it was a great lawnmower beer and my wife loved it. She's not into IPAs, but likes Heavy Seas Loose Cannon, go figure.
I brew CB as my first all grain and I'm excited to see how it compares since the hop utilization should be a bit different and there's no extract in it. Also was my first temp controlled fermentation.
