Brewed to showcase a new hop not yet on the market: Extra Styrian Dana from Slovenia. Part of a program with my LHBS and employer, the Brew Hut, and Hop Union to brew beers using hops not yet available on the market.

Formulated to be a Belgian IPA (or Extra Bitter as these types of beers are known there).
