AKA Texas Brown I bet this would be good using Nugget for one of the later adds.

Not sure what you call it but it has more hops flavor and bitterness than many IPAs.

I opened the first bottle tonight one week after bottling. It was carbed up pretty good so the aroma came out much better than at bottling. I was worried as this was my first dry hopped beer and I felt there wasn't much hops at bottling. Now there is plenty of hops flavor and aroma. I don't feel it is grassy or anything but I'm sure others would. The flavor and bitterness is a little harsh, most likely due to a young age. I expect this will get better in the next few weeks. There is some residue sweetness due to the high FG, I measured ~1.018 at bottling. I think next time I will use a yeast will better attenuation or mash at lower temps. Still this beer is very much what I wanted and I will enjoy every bottle. However I think this one will not be near as popular with friends as my earlier batches or my oatmeal stout that is just about ready to drink. This is a hophead only beer.

Well I was wrong about the popularity of this beer. After about a month of aging the harshness has mellowed out and this is easily my favorite beer. It is also the favorite of my friends and family that appreciate good beer. My oatmeal stout is also popular and my Wit is popular with those who don't drink beer as much but I think this Brown Hoppy is the most appreciated.
