Tasting Notes: Delicious, less hoppy-IPA with a wonderful lemongrass note from the Sorachi.   

I really enjoy this beer. It's not a super hop-monster like many American IPAs have become. It's a nice, aromatic beer that won't lay you on your butt immediately. The bitterness is subdued, and the character of the Citra and Sorachi Ace come through. Lots of tasters were surprised about the lemon/citrus bouquet. You will love this beer if you enjoy more subdued, flavorful iPAs.

Worth noting that this was an explosive fermentation both times I made it.
