I just thought I would share my first attempt at making a label.



What is the normal size for a 12 oz bottle?

I like it. I think green works well for an IPA. Makes me think of hops

i like it.

you should add some hop cones in there, possibly in the open space of the darker green band

Yeah! The brighter yellow-green pops nicely and provides enough contrast so the shaded back hops don't distract or dominate. Very cool.
