Featured Recipe: Dust Devil IIPA

I had the distinct pleasure of tasting this beer a few days ago.  It was brewed by my good friend Mike Stauffer, an excellent homebrewer in Texas.  I tasted ten of his brews and this is the one I loved the most.  Intense hop character both in the aroma and the flavor, a solid but smooth hop bitterness supported by a medium-light body.  Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to present Dust Devil IIPA by Mike Stauffer:
