UPDATE: I actually left the beer in the secondary for upwards of a month, it was crystal clear when bottled, even though I used no irish moss, it's pretty. It also turned into a Red. I mean, freakin' red. It's awesome. I'm pretty sure that there's no such thing as a red IPA, but I made it.

I also tried the first bottle after just under three weeks of conditioning: the hops are insane. Definitely needs a solid month or more in the bottles to control the hop flavors and bitterness, and there's quite a high alcohol content, it's very present when drinking the bottom half of the glass. And the crystal clear went away, chill haze

Made this back in August...just started drinking about 2 weeks ago. It is awesome! Some buddies of mine that are hardcore IPA drinkers, said it was the best homebrew they have ever had!
However, all the bottles are bubbling over after being opened. Next batch I will cut the priming sugar in half.
Cheers!
