Hop_Hurricane Double IPA

 I bought all of the ingredients for this one on a day where there was actually a hurricane passing over the area, which around here just means really heavy rain), hence the name.  I tried to use a continual hopping method similar to Dogfishhead for this and it turned out nicely.  It was a little dark for an IPA since I was doing extract brewing, but it still tasted great!

Brewing Notes

 Added 1oz of Vanguard & 1oz of Glacier Hops a little bit at a time (about every 7 - 10 minutes)  starting with about 90 minutes left in the boil.

Tasting Notes

 Great hop flavor, but could have been even hoppier.
