Diablo IPA

Recommended Posts

So I started the Diablo IPA back on 3/17 and bottled it on 4/9. I dry-hopped with Columbus and Cascade (1/4 oz ea.) and have cracked the first bottle just now. I was extremely surprised! I mean that in a good way! The carbonation was great, maybe a tad over, but I do kinda like a lot of carb myself. The first thing I noticed was how creamy the head seemed. It had a nice mouth feel as I poured it down my gullet! The perfume from the dry-hopping was pure magic. Very citrusy and earthy. The taste is fantastic, so much of the citrus notes and green hops, then on the backswing the bitterness comes through. It has a long finish where the citrus, earthiness and bitterness all coalesce into a wonderful taste treat. This is definately a great brew!

Sounds like a nice brew, congrats! When I did it up, I felt is was lacking, needed some hops for flavor and aroma.
