Having a pretty tastey ESB-based from the Hombrewers recipe guide. Using some organic Hallertau hops.Turned out better than expected.A slight tweek or sub here and there.

Hop Wallop.. Decent but not I'm not crazy for it. IPA's have to be pretty damn fantastic lately to be worth buying. Boring old hops in this.. Tastes like they bittered with Chinook, which means raspy bitterness. I taste Centennial, Columbus, maybe Simcoe. It's a muddled hop profile. I wouldn't be surprised if there are 6 different hops here.

I felt the same way, not a well put together IIPA. Buuuuuuuuuut, Heady has 6 hops and is the IIPA, so I doubt that's the issue. I find Victory to be hit or miss, some I've loved, others not so much.


This, on the other hand, is a bomb IIPA.

Sampling my English IPA, only been in the bottle 3 weeks. A bit green but good. I think I undercarbed this one, it only has a slight fizz to it. I think I just made my first CCC! (cask conditioned clone) Goes down too easy
