APA is In Bottles

I got my dry hopped American Pale Ale into bottles on Tuesday, and I am quite excited about it.  We had a lot of problems from a stuck mash and protracted run-off, so that we cut off early and added too much water to make up for it.  A comedy of errors took this beer into the light or session beer catagory.  The taste out of the fermenter (which means warm, flat, and green) was very citrusy (from the American hops), but not overwhelming in any way.  I hope that the carbonation, chilling, and aging in the bottles does not diminish this beer's delicate hop profile.  I am ever optimistic.

Now, I need to start moving some beer.  I need to find boxes.
