Brew Day 5/28/2015 - Wanted to add more hops and dry hop, but what I put in the boil was all I had from the raffle. Hops were stored in a plastic baggie in the freezer and didn't smell too bad, so I figured I'd use them.
7/6/2015 - Took sample before kegging. Beer had a really strong & aggressive bitterness without much flavor. Not sure if I had the wrong AA% on the hops or that they weren't stored correctly. Decided to dump the batch and not mess with it.
