This being my favourite beer style, I do brew it quite often. This particular recipe is for an IPA that is easily drinkable and not too complex. The bitterness is crisp and dry. It is very aromatic with strong notes of grapefruit and hints of pine. There is little malt complexity. I'll add more crystal malt next time.
Added 1.25ts CaCO3 (calcium carbonate) and 0.5ts CaSO4 (gypsum) to enhance the hops.
