American IPA
« on: May 19, 2011, 05:30:57 PM »
I brewed what was gonna be an American IPA, but I ended up buying Marris otter instead of American 2-row. Could I still call this an American IPA?

I think your hop profile will make it an American IPA.  The Maris Otter should add a nice background malt character.

      Did you dry hop your beer? 
I usually use about 2 or 3oz for dry hopping and get great results.

Kinda funny. My brother and I were asking each other the same thing just yesterday. We came up with this.. Just call it an Uber IPA or like Shane said,
   Call it a homebrew and enjoy it.

If you brew this in the UK, that's a whole different story! ;D
