It's currently fermenting, but I couldn't believe the amount of bitterness that was extracted in just 15 minutes. It was probably the most bitter IPA I've brewed. I've been slowly moving towards less early bittering charges and higher amounts of late addition hopping to extract more hop flavor and aroma. After performing this test, my next all-grain IPA will be conducted with a 60 minute boil and all late addition hops (15 minutes and less).
