7 C's IPA, pretty straightforward, 7 'C' hops! A buddy and I split the batch, we wanted moderate to moderate-high bitterness, high hop flavor and a nice high hop aroma and a good punch to the beer to stand up to the hops.
This recipe is a partial mash with late extract addition and a smaller boil volume (3.5 gallons) so adjust your hopping accordingly!

I started with just shy of 6.0 gallons of wort, the beer blew-off like mad, I lost almost 0.5 gallons! In addition a lot of sediment in primary and absorption of dry hops in secondary this only yielded 42 bottles.
The beer turned out great! We'll be enjoying today for the official unvieling at our 7-7-07 Party, but we sampled a few ahead of time.
The hop bitterness is what we wanted, moderate to moderate-high, very high hop flavor, hop aroma is good, but I wouldn't mind a bit more (next time I will add some hops around 5 mins). The beer is extremely smooth and sly for it's 7.3 % ABV, so sip away! mmmmm....hops!
