This is a bit on the light side OG wise for an IPA. I wanted a brew to savor and enjoy. Hop notes are very light with this. If I brew it again, I would kick in alot more Kent hops. I used the Simicoe as they were a left over from previous brew. Knowing that IPA's were likely shipped in wooden kegs, I thought it would be interesting to try a wood aged IPA. Missed on the hops, so I think another ounce at 45 minutes would get it right. Pics to follow.
They call him easy.....easy brewer.....
