It is pretty bitter allright, i had some hops needed using up and not wanting to overwhelm the stout i chucked them into the IPA instead.The 30min boil was only because i could not be arsed boiling them any longer :huh:

If that was prehopped ^^ You could of got away with 10min boil I'd reckon. Or could of left out the green bullet to the last minute.

I learnt my lesson with pre hopped cans and boiled "pride of Ringwood" hops for 30mins... WOW it was bitter. I had nothing to lose so I tried just putting a bit of pear cider in I had on the other tap. Just enough to take the edge off..
