Octane IPA

High octane performance in this best-selling IPA drives home big body and a distinct hoppy malty character. Minneapolis customers make this kit our number one selling beer recipe kit! Oak chips add a faint woodiness that many think was present in the first IPAs stored and sent in oak casks to the British troops in India 150 years ago.


  • Deep red amber color
  • Full body, rich in hops and malt flavor and balance
  • Recipe note: Adding 1 ounce of oak chips during the secondary fermentation offers a faint woodiness
  • Ingredients for this recipe include: 6 lbs. Gold liquid malt extract, 3.15 lbs. Amber LME, 8 oz. Caramel 40L specialty grains, 2 oz. Cascade, 1 oz. Willamette, 1 oz. Goldings pellet hops, oak chips, yeast, priming sugar and a grain bag

Octane Great Taste, but not what I expected Review by Jeff

(Posted on 7/26/14)

Product Rating:

It was 1 week in primary, 2 in secondary and 2 weeks in the keg carbonating. I have to say it was more like a brown ale than an IPA. With the hop bill I was expecting more bitterness. My wife who does not typically like brown ales or IPAs liked this one.

Solid IPA Review by Matzaklr

Good IPA. Everyone seemed to enjoy it between batches of Ferocious. Not quite as smelly as Ferocious. Not too bitter for a IPA.

High Octane Review by Sample

Its a novel and good IPA that I will brew again. I added the oak chips for 3 days prior to bottling and have a good oak flavor along with the hoppiness. The oak chips are powerful so don't forget about them for a few weeks and over oak your beer. * I dry hopped instead of adding hops at the end of the boil.

Hoppy with a smooth finish Review by Joe

This was my 1st hop beer brewing effort. I will say it was an excellent choice. It has great flavor with a very appealing aroma. I did not follow the instructions 100%, i have never liked the oak taste in beer so i left that part out. It still brewed great beer and maybe next time i will give the oak a chance. I could also see the oak chips being a pain to get out of the carboy.

Bourbon octane Review by Aldany

Defnetly one of my favorite beers, even tough it wasn't in the beginning. Now after 6 months in the bottle it has become a very fine beer. (worth the wait) I did substitute the 6lbs gold lme for 6lbs of light dme. trying to control the color a little bit and used the Wyeast. for the oak chips I did soak them in a container with Jim Beam bourbon for 2 weeks the time that the brew was in the primary.then I removed the oak chips from the bourbon and added to secondary for another two weeks and primed with Kreamx. After 1 month in bottles I didn't like it much the flavors of the bourbon and oak were too strong and I forgot about the beer but now after over 6 months in the bottle all the flavors have mellowed down the beer has a beautiful color and lasting head( think the Kreamx for priming worked realy nice) a fine beer hard to find in the stores. O.G 1.060 and F.G 1.018 despiste the plenty amount of hops I wouldn't call it a IPA and would definetly do it again and strongly recommend to soak the chips and waiting. cheers

Oaky IPA Review by Hank

Its a very different flavor and I like it. This was a fun kit to make, trying to imagine how it would come out. Its one of the best kits sold here (Hop Head is also very good) and I'm going to make it again when this runs out.

Nice Brew Review by Austin

This was a very nice brew. I have a friend who loves craft brews that said this was one of the best beers he's ever had. I would agree. My favorite that I've made so far. It wasn't as hop forward as I thought it would be, but it still has a very unique and wonderful flavor.

Great taste Review by Jhartflyboy3

Octane came out to be a lot thicker than I wanted but it didn't take away from the hop flavor and aroma! I'd definitely do this brew again

Awesome IPA! Review by Yorimasa

(Posted on 9/30/13)

Product Rating:

This is a very solid IPA. One word of advice though don’t add the optional wood chips to the whole batch. Maybe split it, a few gallons with wood and a few without. I found the woodiness to be overpowering. I will definitely buy this again though. Even with the strong wood flavor my friends drank the whole batch in one night. Writing this is making me want to buy one right now actually.

Awesome! Review by Ryan
