Double IPA ... one of my favorite styles. Do you have any to sample???

Beth & I just started drinking our original recipe double IPA, 'Brain Trauma'... We'll bring along a couple bombers to the next meeting. 23 lbs of grain & 170 IBU's!!! (according to Beersmith program, Rager scale) approx 9%abv(seems stronger), we're really enjoying this one. Still a young beer, extremely hoppy, but balanced. We're gettin' 'traumatized'!

Will post the recipe after reviews at the meeting if anyone is interested.
