I know I enclosed information in the package I sent you guys, but here's the info for everyone else that wants to read it. The two beers I sent out are the following:
IPA - Bottled in the 22 oz with red cap (#24 in my sig) - edit, I just drank the last one!
IBU: 70 or so
The IPA is the my second attempt at making an IPA and is currently the oldest brew I have in stock (not counting the barleywines and such intentionally being aged), and you guys have the last three! For that reason I am curious to see if you can detect any defects that might be related to age and storage. My cellar is my garage and is subject to the temperature swings of Southern California. The last time I had one I didn't notice anything apparent, but see if you notice anything. The IBU's are probably a little less that when it was fresh, so don't expect it to punch you in the face with hops as much. Also, this beer ended up a little over-carbonated. I'm not sure where in the process but probably just due to carelessness on my part measuring the priming sugar at bottling.
Old Ale - Bottled in the 12 oz with silver cap (#27 in my sig)

Also copied from the recipe page: This recipe started out as an Amber Ale that went heywire. I went to the LHBS and asked for the following ingredients, 9 lbs. 2-Row, 1 lb. Munich, 0.5 lb. Crystal 75, 0.5 lb. Crystal 120. Instead of the 11 lbs. of grain that I asked for, I received them all in kilograms! That's 24.2 lbs. of grain! And way more than I can mash at one time. I decided to mix the grain up (it ended up in 2 bags) and weighed out 11 lbs. of grain to make my Amber and had 13.2 lbs. leftover. I decided to just find a style that fit the gravity and color that I had already and go with it. Old Ale seemed to fit nicely.
