English IPA, April 3 2010

Intended for the extract club-only but we lost track of time and couldn't get it in bottles fast enough.  First tastes after kegging weren't promising either.  It was simply too hot and surprisingly low body.  Another surprise is that the hop flavor was muted.  This beer took until about mid-May to balance out.  I'll be more gentle the next time I try extract!
