American Super Double Imperial IPA

O.G.: 1.087
F.G.: 1.022
Bitterness: 116 IBU
Color: 15 SRM
ABV: 8.90%

Description:

A blisteringly bitter beer that should satisfy the most extreme type of Hop Head, but also smooth and significant malt flavors and a high ABV% from nearly 20lbs of grains. The spotlight is on the Columbus hops for the bittering, aroma and flavor, while the less harsh Cascade hops are dry-hopped for a smooth flowery flavor.

Notes

A simple infusion mash will work well for the highly modified 2-row malt used. Try to sparge so that the volume at the start of the boil is about 6 gallons. This will make about 5 gallons in the fermenter. Add the Cascade hops when you transfer to the secondary fermenter after about a week in the primary. Bottle aging for about a month will be perfect.
