That sounds like something I would like. I will look into it for my next batch in a month or two. Currently have 2 entire batches almost done.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

I'm a fan. I don't like bitter. It's like a lager with more taste.
It's not me, it's someone else.

Me too. You are I are malt-heads. Peeps who like bitter are hop-heads. Interestingly, overhopped beer deadens your taste buds for hoppiness, so the more you drink the more hops you need to get the same taste. Like crack, I guess. Peeps figure this explains the American trend to make bigger and bigger hop bombs all the time, it is sort of an American thing.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

The hoppiness in beer is a trend I'm not overly fond of because overhopping is used to cover up your mistakes. That being said, certain IPAs are fucking awesome. Bell's Two-Hearted, for example.

Cracked a beer, and it is pretty interesting. More hoppiness than I expected... I wonder if the sap somehow allowed the hops to express themselves better.

For those who don't know, hoppiness is often expressed by the volume of water you use during the boil. If you throw an ounce of hops into 4 gallons of water it will express more than an ounce of hops in 2.5 gallons of water.

But it's good. I wish I had a better beer vocabulary with which to explain it.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.
