I just racked it into a keg... finished at 1.012, just shy of 7% ABV, citrus nose, smooth bitterness... FANTASTIC!!!! The beer needs to carb up for a week then crash cool to clear but this recipe is absolutely a keeper!!!!!!!

I'm making a new IPA with a little more color... gotta figure out a good name. I'm using up some of that EKG that you gave me... and polished off my (meager) supply of fuggle. :D

This looks so easy and so damn good. I put it in Brewpal and it's on my to-brew list for sure. My favorite ipas so far have been either pure dme or pure lme and loads of hops. Was this dry hopped at all?
