Brutal Bitter Clone
I love Rogue's Brutal Bitter and decided it would be a great beer for the late DME addition method that I learned on the website. I just drank one after 10 days of carbing and it is extremely good with great colour. Not as bitter as the brutal bitter ( which my sweet wife and brew assistant is very happy about) but the same citrusy flavor of the crystal hops shines through. Brutal Bitter uses all Crystal hops according to Rogues website, I didn't.
