    Started mine about 4 days ago and is going strong. I scaled it back to brew a 3 gallon batch and, after looking at my calculations on beersmith, everything is on point except for the IBUs which are coming in over 100. Time will tell if it is well balanced or a total hop bomb.

    just tasting this. it’s a little young, only 14 days old! great balance, a mild citrus at the start, replaced by a roasted malt and mild chocolate finish. i don’t care for dry hopping with simcoe (tastes like onions) but it works well. thanks for posting. mike
