For whatever reason, efficiency was great on this one.  Began fermentation at 1.072 and ended at 1.012 for 7.8% ABV.  After two weeks in primary, it got kegged, dry hopped, cold conditioned for two weeks, and served.  Tasted like a great IPA, and after six to eight weeks tasted like a great double IPA without the alcohol burn.
