Intoxicating 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.

  • Gold/copper color with good head retention
  • Hoppy yet balanced, with a slightly fruity flavor and malty finish

hop scare
Brewed this with a family member.'s a good beer! Turned out clear with a great head. Flavor was balanced with hops as I mashed at 153*. Give this one a try!

hop scare
It didn't scare me I tried it. Bold...VERY BOLD BEER! Easy to make. I recommend white labs yeast. I let sit 3 weeks after bottling...WOW! Hop flavor is great!

hop scare
Good ips kit. Beer has an intense grapefruit flavor from the magnum and amarillo. _x000D_Beer is light in color, but still has a good body. I used 1056 yeast and it came out really good.

Give this brew some time
This was my latest brew. After two weeks in the bottle it didn't come across as anything special, but still a good, solid brew. After another two weeks, wow! I think this brew just needs a little time to develop its flavor. Don't rush to drink this one. You'll be glad you did.

Let it mellow
Overall I am happy, a good balance of hops and bitterness. Fermented 2 weeks in primary, 6 days in secondary on 1oz of Centennial leafs. As others have mentioned the flavors mellow out the longer you let it bottle condition. I suggest 3 weeks minimum (if you can wait that long). Bottled with less sugar then recommended (4oz) and it came out fantastic.

Easy first outing...
This recipe was my first try at homebrewing and my friends & I thought it turned out pretty darn good. It's lighter bodied than I was expecting and tasted a little less hoppy. However, that might be due to operator error. The brew turn out nice and clear with a wonderful amber color. Very crisp tasting. Also, noticed a much better taste after the third week in the bottle as compared to the second week. A fun beer with a relatively high alcohol content. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in IPAs.

first recipe
I think this is a really nice first brew. I figured there would not be enough hops so I ordered a few extra ounces of centennial and cascade. We increased the hops schedule a bit, dry hopped as well and then made our batch with 1/2 of a gallon less water than called for . . . I would say if I did it again I would add even more hops especially mid to end of the boil. This beer really tastes great and really matures as it ages but not as hoppy as most of your west coast IPAs. I would also say leave in the primary and secondary a bit longer than called for, especially if you get stomach problems from residual yeast. cheers jon

Bitter Goodness
A great tasting, crisp brew. This was my 5th or 6th brew and I racked it 2 times before I racked it to the keg. The result was well worth the extra time. A nice amber color and great nose. It could have used some more hops earlier in the schedule so if you prefer a really hoppy flavor I would suggest you add in at least 1 more ounce at the 45 min mark. The bitterness is definitely there though so be careful that you don't create too much acidity and ruin the beer. All in all- a great beginners IPA.

Hops Scare.. Excellent IPA
This is the 5th time brewing this recipe with White Labs yeast. Best one in my book. Great body, aroma to die for...Fantastic copper color, nice white head with great lacing, (I use 1.5 cups of light DME instead of the sugar when bottling, ..this time around I've added an extra half ounce of Yakima Magnum during the first 15 minutes of the boil, just to tinker with the recipe....1 week in the primary and 2 weeks in the secondary then 4 in the bottle. Friends love it.
