One of my favorite things is the green beer stage. After the liquor becomes wort but before it becomes bright it is green. Because I am a bad brewer, I never know how it will turn out in the end but when it is green - before the infections can set in, before the carbonation can fail - it tastes like you hope it will. Sure, there is too much yeast and the hops are over the top but it tastes like you hope it will. This particular brew is already at 5.5%. It'll maybe sort of an IPA if it clears perfectly in the secondary or maybe, you know, a strong ale if it doesn't. I don't really care. I brew ale. It tastes like the ale I make.
