Default Brewed my first IPA

Not sure if you'd call it an IPA or just a really hoppy American Pale ale....anyways after close to to a month fermenting I bottled yesterday.

1.059 OG 1.011 FG.

One of the bottles cracked while I was capping so I poured the non-carbonated beer into a snifter to get a look at the color (it actually looks a bit brighter in person)

Looks delicious. It'll be better carbed.

The color reminds me of a belgian. My PM Maori IPA will be a bit darker,but we'll see for sure about this time next week.
