I'm trying to make a California based IPA, made mostly with ingredients from the West Coast. I've emphasized Bravo hops because they come from San Francisco, CA.. I would like a lighter more golden color, but I would like ABV to remain high, and I understand the importance of the amber/malty flavor in an IPA.
I want nothing but American/West Coast flavors in this beer. I have not brewed yet, and I'm looking for some opinions. Thanks.
