All Grain Belgian IPA HomeBrew Recipe

Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a Belgian IPA similar to Three Floyds Shark Pants. Bold hoppy aromas and flavors of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine. Medium-bodied with resiny hop flavors and intense bitterness. Brewed with a massive amount of hops which could cause brewing issues on some systems. Hop bitterness pushes the extreme limit of what can be absorbed into the boiling wort, at a theoretical 260 IBUs.
