I had an infection with a porter once, very similar to what you describe. Everything smelled
fine, samples tasted fine, so I bottled it. Carefully transferred to bottling bucket at

I love some victory malt in an IPA. I wouldn't mess with the grain bill, munich and victory go

and honey malt, ...

About 5% maximum crystal malts is a good guideline for an American IPA, where you want to the
