Tasting Notes
Nice flavor, very hoppy, but not crushingly bitter. 5.5% ABV
I used leaf hops and dry hopped the last 7 days in the secondary. Lots of the hops didn't touch the beer for a few days, so it was like it was gradually dry-hopped over the week. This is my favorite kind of beer, a simple medium-bodied pale ale.
