This American IPA is so named because of the hop character and not the grain bill. I find it to be well balanced with a big in your face floral citrus hop aroma. It’s very drinkable. For this recipe, I ferment the all-grain wort until it stops bubbling, then I add the pound of table sugar (sugar + 1.5 c water boiled until it is a syrup then cooled). When the sugar fermentation is complete I dry hop with the ounce of citra for 5 days. Finally I keg or bottle it.
