1 keg was served on 3/7/09 for the birthday party. This was an amazing beer! The fermentation was flawless, and the hop impact was incredible. The glass presentation was great, with a hazy orange glow and a lasting head. I would only ask for a little more hop aroma, which might have been achieved by a longer dry hop, and I think getting some Centennial in the dry hops would have helped increase the aroma also. I would say this beer could score in the low 40's as an imperial IPA.
3/16/09 The other keg was left on the hops longer (mainly because when Ray was trying to fish it out, the string broke!) It is now carbonated and we will bottle some of it for competition next week. I am hoping that we get a little more hop aroma from this batch.
