I over-carbed mine a bit at first and I think it gave it too much bite. I backed off the CO2 and it got better carbonation wise. It did lose quite a bit of the bitterness and hop aroma though. I've wondered if this was due to me messing with the CO2 level and how much aroma was escaping each time I bled off some of the CO2.
Overall I was pleased with the recipe, but mine did lose it's hoppiness pretty fast.
