This was my attempt to marry what I like about classic British IPAs with the big, complex hopping strategy of American IPAs. I love American IPAs but they tend to be pretty big beers and they are sometimes a little one-dimensional hops delivery vehicles.

This is very good. I wish it had finished a point or two hger in FG--it was very cold when I brewed this and I think I lost more heat than usual in the mashtun.

yeah, it was plain-old American two-row. I'm pretty budget-conscious, so on hoppy beers especially I try to keep the grain costs to minimum, since you're mostly going to be tasting the hops anyway.

Update: I bottled this about 2 months ago, and it is right up there with the best beers I've made. Early on, it was all about the hops flavor and aroma, of course--I'm starting to taste some of the yeast character and the grainbill a little more now.
