DirectionsMash @ 150 degrees F for 60 minutes

Fermentation
notes
Ferment @ 72 degrees F until terminal gravity is reached.  Immediately dry hop for three days.  Cold crash and package.

Tasting
notes
Massive, massive hop aroma.  Lots of dank, piney, and spicy elements, followed by citrus and fruity hop notes.

For the first week or so, the dank hop flavors really overpowered the fruity ones, but over time, they reached an equilibrium where the citrus/grapefruit/fruity hop flavors became the strongest element (though those dank/spicy flavors stayed strong).  A little malt sweetness up front, but this beer is clearly all about the hops.  Super drinkable.
