Brewday: American IPA (last week)

November 7, 2010

This past Wednesday I brewed up an American IPA but completely forgot to blog the recipe. This one actually wound up being a modification of my Amarillo IPA. Same grain bill as the Amarillo, but a healthy mix of chinook hops added into the amarillo.
