That does look pretty dark, almost like a stout. Nice head on it

I bottled a week ago. Tonight I decided to open a bottle. I was surprised by the amount of carbonation, which might not be so apparent in the photo.

I was afraid the beer might have a grassy taste, because I dry hopped for like 3 weeks. Fortunately I didn't taste any grassy flavor.

I'm really happy how my beer turned out, especially since it was only my second batch and I put together the recipe myself.

Thanks to everyone for their input and advice!

Tell us how the hops turned out. What you hoped for?

Overall I am happy with the flavors the hops provided. However I feel like the bittering hops are a little too pronounced in the flavor. I tend to like IPAs without too much of a bitter taste, for example Sierra Nevada's Torpedo IPA.

The flavor could also be coming from the hops with the grapefruit aromas, since grapefruit can be a bit bitter. Or maybe I'm wrong about that...

I think many do mistake that citrusy tartness for bittering.
