DetailsA bitter dictator of a beer, Hop Lord roars with a tyrannical 10% ABV. Anything but rational, the fermentable sugars are over-inflated and hop character borders ridiculous at over 110 IBUs. A siege of floral-citrus and dank resinous pine beget boozy, intensely hoppy spiced grapefruit. Despite the opulence of this recipe, Hop Lord’s full-flavored profile finishes surprisingly dry, perfect for carefully rationing out to a crowd and hoarding the rest for yourself.
Yeast starter and 2-stage fermentation strongly recommended, this high-ABV works yeast to the bone.

4.5 / 5.08 ReviewsAwesomeThis turned out a little sweet, mid malt heavy hops.It's on my list of brews for sure.September 21, 2014Good things come to those who wait...This was my biggest (ABV) beer to date, it finally came through. It took close to 3 mo's to bottle carb. Great hop flavor. The longer it ages the better it is. I really liked this kit. You just need to give it time if you are bottle carbing.February 1, 2015WOWFollowed directions exactly and this beer came out excellent! Nice flavor but I didn't care for the pronounced alcohol aftertaste. Super strong, I could only drink a few glasses at a time, got me in trouble, should be called "Mind Eraser" LOL. If I ever make this again it will go into bottles instead of the keg. The only reason I haven't made it again is the high abv, more than I can handle, otherwise it's delicious.July 27, 2014Great IPAThis kit is my favorite brew I have done ever. I've been brewing about 2 years and this was my highest ABV beer and also my first IPA. I did the white labs yeast with a yeast starter and let ferment 9 days, secondary 2 weeks and bottle condition 2 weeks. The only drawback to this brew is I can only have 2-3 at a time before feeling buzzed. I would totally buy this again and highly recommend to anyone.June 25, 20162nd BREW...Give it some time...turns out real nice.Give this brew some time. Great kit...instructions need a little work though. 2 weeks primary/ 5 weeks secondary. Dry hopped the last week (didn't really need it though). Cleared up real nice with the Irish moss. Kegging it in a few days. took a quick taste...SPECTACULAR! If you like Dogfish...this is it. Standby...its @ 10.5% ABV. Got another 3 in the primary now...I'm a little addicted to this stuff.January 16, 2016good beerthe beer is looking good cant wait to drink itMarch 23, 2016Very tastyCame out great even using dry yeast (though I did pitch extra packets).September 8, 2014
- Customer Q&A
Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 5 answersWith high gravity beer do you need more priming surger?BEST ANSWER: Yes. Priming sugar gives remaining yeast just enough food to carbonate bottles correctly. Origional fermentable sugar has effectively been used up. Follow recipe or you'll have under (flat) or over carbonated (explosive) beer. However, I highly recommend kegging. Priming is taken out of the equation and you can still bottle after beer is carbonated.With such a high SG, should you double the yeast and make a 1L starter for proper attenuation?BEST ANSWER: Yes! If you're using a dry yeast, use two; ( don't make a starter with dry yeast ) if using a liquid yeast either use two, or make a big starter for it a few days in advance. This will greatly increase the odds of the beer fermenting well, and finishing out fully. - Mike W, Midwest Supplies
