Spring (Belgian) IPA

Haha - it's all relative I suppose...tastes pretty hoppy to me, but my taste buds haven't been hop-desensitized as much as many of you. Look forward to getting some hop head feedback.

Don't let them get to you sdixon!  My last IPA was only 65 IBUs.  I'm sure it'll be delicious, and I can't wait to try it.

Most secretaries are women
Most women like lighter beer
For a secretary, this particular beer, would likely be a hop bomb.
