HOPPY GOLDEN 3V CONICAL v1

Well, what is one to do with a whole metric crap ton of left over ingredients after a 7 beer NHC run? A total hodge podge high alcohol boozer of a hot mess of course!!!!!! I cleared out the grain bins and the freezer of all hops and what came out was drinkable! That said, don’t make this beer 🙂
