I just pop the top off of my first personal recipe a Galena Single hop IPA at 6.4% and 80 IBUs which was dry hoped with Galena for 8 days it has been bottle conditioning for 9 days and it is great. Beautiful clear orange pour with thick white head that has great retention! The Aroma is full of orange and citrus fruit with a hint of coconut, reminded me of the smell and taste of a really good southern ambrosia that would be served at a family reunion! There is not off after taste that one might find early on in the bottle conditioning stage. I can not wait to see how this taste at week two and three I promise to have at least an 18 pack around to try at week 3!

Does anyone else feel almost like you're holding your child when you're tasting a great beer you just finished brewing?

Thanks for the profile of the hop...I literally just took this out of my recipe I am building for a Belgian...maybe I need to reconsider.
