This is my first IPA recipe, which recently won a gold in the IPA category and a third-place Best of Show at the Olde Hickory Pro Am in North Carolina. It also won a bronze in the Colonial Cup in Charleston, S.C.
Definitely the best beer I've brewed thus far. My efficiency was only about 63% on this one, so my OG was 1.056. But I loved it so much I'm going to keep it the same. Adjust your grain bill accordingly.

Single infusion mash at 152 F. I batch sparge. The Simcoe were leaf hops for this particular batch because it's all I could find, so adjust amounts as necessary if you use pellets. Rehydrate yeast, pitch in mid-60s and maintain temp for 3 weeks in primary. Rack to bottling bucket or keg, carbonate to 2.5 vol. CO2. (I used 4.2 oz. corn sugar for 5 gallons). Drink. Enjoy!
