Zymurgy Chainbreaker IPA Clone

As I was kegging this beer, I texted Satan that it was so good, I didn't want to wait till it was carbonated to drink it. So I put it in the fridge, and put CO2 on it.

A week later, I couldn't wait any longer.


There's some nice hop bitterness, with a little tartness (probably from the lactic acid in the mash) and a great aroma.

This is definitely a keeper!

I should probably brew this again right now, just to have it on tap all the time.
