American IPA – First Attempt

My first attempt of homebrewing. I was attempting to make an American IPA inspired by Sierra Nevada’s Torpedo Extra IPA. The result was a quite fruity and bitter beer, but I felt it lacked a bit of hop flavor and sweetness. Below is the recipe and some pictures of the brewing process.
