Session IPA

This is one of my go-to recipes. Light, easy to drink, still hoppy, and tasty. It's been through many iterations, I think I'm coming close to the hop flavor and aroma that will be it's final form.

Brew Day - NW Red

Got to brew a pretty standard red on Sunday, but gave it just enough of a twist to make it 'NW' style. Starting recipe was the Irish Red out of Brewing Classic Styles (upped to 12 gallons).
