April Rockit Cup: Single-Hop Session IPA

April is the second anniversary of the Rockit Cup, so we’re trying something new: a standardized recipe with one intentional variable. In this case, you get to choose the single hop variety you use in the beer. For example, I will most likely use Comet. If you have the technical knowledge, ability, and, more importantly, desire, modify the 60 minute bittering addition to aim for 50 IBUs.
