September IPA

This is the first IPA I’ve made and I made it in September. Quite a dull name but not entirely unpleasant. This recipe worked out nicely in my system to produce a nice 5.5% Anglo-American IPA. For me this is a really nice combination of British and American hops with the bitterness and spicyness of a more traditional English IPA but with the crisp, clean aroma from the American Citra hops. Batch size was around 20L.
