Well, I made a 5 gal batch of this beer. Put nearly 22 oz of dry hops into it. In the end, it was okay...good even, but not nearly as good as the “Sandy” American IPA, which is listed as the 2016 winner of the HomeBrewCompetition, and which uses a whole lot less hops--read cheaper and IMO, better beer. My assessment, all those hops don't prove to be worth it
. Brew on!
