Boil Time: 120 min Equipment: My Equipment
Taste Rating(out of 50): 45.0 Brewhouse Efficiency: 55.00
Taste Notes: This is a not to style beer. The grain bill is a Dopplebock grain bill. This gives it a tremendous amount of malt to offset an absolutely insane amount of hops.

1 Pound of leaf hops was too much. 1/3 of my boil kettle was hops, thus Hop Soup. Capped the boil and impedied boil off
This beer has a very mild and smooth bitterness is seems to be something around 50 IBU's (remember this was 1 pound of whole hops put in the dry kettle.) The aroma has a herbal character that some describe as grassy.
This is an easy drinking, easy to drink, easy to slam beer that will sneak up on you with a reverse slam.
