"What are you lookin at" IPA

Having just recently switched to kegging (in the last couple of months), I've been able to skip over the very long bottle carbonation times I experienced before.  And for my love of hop forward beers, it's been a blessing in disguise.

This recipe is based on the Punk IPA clone from BYO clone brew magazine and others opinions from Aussie Homebrewer forum.  If you don't like bitter IPA's this beer is not for you.  The bitterness comes on like a Scottish punk and punches you right in the face.  It tastes fantastic.  As always mouthfeel just isn't enough but it's always an area of continued research.

This beer is definitely going to become a staple in my keg rotation.
