DetailsIntoxicating potion swirls within each glass of Hop Scare, concealed beneath a crown of rich lather. As froth fades, the clear, pale elixir explodes into twisted shrieks of citrusy grapefruit. Well-defined maltiness bridles the bitter hops in an intense, full-bodied finish. Hop Scare is liquid gold—relentlessly beckoning; effervescent with a sinister shine.

4.9 / 5.07 ReviewsLess harsh IPAI think this tastes better than other IPAs I have made, it's somehow less harsh. I think this has to do with the Magnum hops used for bittering. I like the aroma too._x000D_I gave it 3 weeks in the fermenter, and 3 weeks to bottle condition. It was fully carbonated and lasted just 2 weeks.January 9, 2013Excellent kit for hops loversI would strongly advise using the liquid yeast strain for this kit._x000D_It's a tasty IPA for an extract recipe but dry hopping adds a little something extra._x000D_The taste, aroma, and color are great. I used Irish Moss and it had pretty much cleared by the end of primary.July 15, 2013Smootth IPAThis is a really nice IPA. I did a first wort hopping plus added the aroma hops at flame out for 20 minutes. Its not harsh, has awesome flavor, and is one of the best IPA kits I've brewed. I didn't get as much aroma, but the flavor is good.August 17, 2013hop scareHops hops hops....I love hops! The grapefruit flavor from the hops pours out into your mouth...ahhhh! So intense, but the bitterness is not over powering. Just great flavor!August 24, 2013Good IPA kitIts a good hoppy IPA with pretty good flavor but not as much aroma as I'd have liked. I made it with the Wyeast pack. I smacked it, it was inflated 3 hours later, and I poured it in. I fermented in a bucket for 3 weeks, then bottled it and had it 3 weeks later.November 4, 2013Very good IPAThis is a great beer that I'm happy to have every day. My buddy and I keg this stuff, and it pours beautifully, nice head with lacing all the way down the glass._x000D_IPA lovers will like this kit for sure.February 18, 2014GoodThis is a good, but not great, hoppy IPA. There wasn't so much aroma and the taste was ok but nothing special. I gave it 4 weeks in the secondary to clear, and bottle conditioned for 4 weeks.April 1, 2013
