Default Had to share

I have to credit Jeff at garagebrewers.com for this recipe. Several weeks ago I felt like brewing I asked Jeff what I should brew and gave him an ingredients list (I wanted to brew with what I had on hand and only what I had on hand)....knowing that I'm a hop head this is what he came up with. It's been kegged since monday night, it's the first beer I felt excited about other brewers sampling, and two big glasses is all it takes for me to feel "just right"

If you like centennial hops, two hearted ale or the like, this is a beautiful 9% IIPA......anyone brewing this please drop me a PM and tell me what you think.

The cane sugar was added with 15 minutes left in the boil. I skipped the dry hop because I wanted to be able to keg it before a club meeting.....dry hopping may make this even better, though I don't know how it could.

Are you part of the GBS? I considered stopping into a meeting a few times over the past year but never had a chance to do it. They seem fairly active and laid back.
