DetailsUnlike any other IPA that has come before it, new-age Calypso hops offer brilliant flavor and aroma from lemons, cherry blossoms, black pepper, bitter orange and mint to hints of tropical fruit and sappy, pronounced pear. Versatile, evolving hop character and markedly smooth bittering make for a complex IPA balanced by clean, slightly sweet and bready malt. Capturing fantastic reviews from IPA lovers and light-beer-drinkers alike, Calypso is a flavor odyssey with a serene, unforgettable finish.

4.8 / 5.04 ReviewsCalypso KitVery drinkable beer, hops are smooth and citrus tasting without a lot of bitterness. I did have to hop it in the keg, and what a difference it made. Will definitely do this one again. Maybe do a 10 gallon batch so it last more than a weekend!January 16, 2016For those who don't like IPA's!I've never been a huge fan of IPA's, while all my buddies love the syrupy, hoppiest, triple back flip dry hopped out the wazzoo, skunk in a bottle IPA's, this one is simply delightful.
I've brewed it twice now, once in the bottle, once kegged, and it's a very smooooooth drinker. The Calypso hops are wonderful, very distinctive, pleasantly citrus, fruity, apple, something. The 2 oz aroma hops give it a beautiful bouquet like aroma, and it's hard to not drink a few.
Highly recommended, will be a staple in my new kegerator.February 2, 2018Purchased
9 months agoThis is hands down my favorite beer I’ve made out of 75 batches. (So far!). Big fan of IPA’s, the balance of sweetness and the hops is spot on. Efficiency of 91 and 7.2 ABV doesn’t hurt either!August 12, 2018Purchased

- Customer Q&A
Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 5 answersWell, my question is more general than only for this kit. I really like it when you show the box for the kits, rather then the glass of beer, because then I can mouse over it and read the contents of the kit. i know it is business to sell kits and lots of customers probably prefer a kit anyway. But some of us brewers out here but a lot of your product in bulk and want to configure or make a batch of something in one of your kits. Sure, we could google a recipe, but your recipes are tried and true and we trust you to give us a good product. So, why not give us the recipe, including the ingredients, grains, steeping grains, so we can also enjoy your product?
I love so much about how you do business, if I lived closer, may purchase kits, but with shipping expenses, it does not often make sense. Just an idea to make available for us. Thank youBEST ANSWER: 6 lbs Pilsen LME
1 lbs Pilsen DME
1/4 lbs Caramel/Crystal 120L
3/4 lbs Caramel Pils
1/2 lbs Carapils
and of course 3 oz Calypso hop pellets 1oz@60/.5oz @50/.5oz@9/ Last 1oz for dry hopping.
I brewed this kit about a week and a half ago and I hate to say its gone already! My next will be a 10 gallon batch. Hops are definitely different, not overly bitter and citrus/fruity(maybe cherries) I used white labs California Ale yeast to ferment, dry hopped and cold crashed it. My 1st taste I said it needed more hops so I added another ounce to the keg.
Everybody loved this beer,even the women who tend to shy away from my IPA's. I've since up my production batches to 10 gallons, just so I can get a little to drink!

CharlesIs this kit the ingredients from scratch, do you get to make the actual mix yourself, or is it the pre-made ready to go mix.BEST ANSWER: It is an extract kit, that means that while not all grain, it is all the components of the beer pre-measured and ready to be put together in the comfort of your own home. Generally speaking an extract kit is easier for beginners and yields a more consistent result. This kit contains, the hops, the grains, a liquid malt, and a yeast.
