The plan was for a very hoppy aroma filled IPA. The brew day itself went well, however when it came to dry hopping it turned out the hops for dry-hop were 2013 harvest and not very good at all.

 A big lesson learnt is to stock up on 2015 harvest hops as soon as they are available rather than having to buy hops towards the end of the year.

I'd imagine this will be far from undrinkable - but also far from what it was intended to be.

I'll use the 4.5kg of malt and the rest of these hops to try get a plain 'flavourless' pale ale - stocks of anything pale is quite low right now.
