Moved the Nelson Sauvin to 4 minutes and dropped the Chinook dry hop. Transferred into the serving keg and it tastes incredible. This is the best IPA I've brewed yet (in my opinion, of course). Aroma...

My only issue with the bags is they seem to really reduce utilization for me in the boil. Maybe they're not as bad when dry-hopping. Though, for all I know, herb balls have the same issue. ;)

One of my favorite to dry hop with is Falconer's Flight. As I understand, it's a blend of Citra, Simcoe, Sorachi Ace and others. It has very nice aromatic qualities.
