Product Details

Based on the tried and true combination of Citra and Mosaic, Arctic Slush takes these iconic hops to the next level. Utilizing the immensely popular Cryo Hops, this recipe unapologetically cranks up the flavor and aroma while maintaining only moderate bitterness.

The base of this frosty ale lends a pronounced malt profile of clean grainy flavors with a hint of toast and a slightly noticeable dark caramel note, while the Cryo hops impart monolithic essences of citrus, pine, tropical fruit, and floral notes. Its modest alcohol character makes Arctic Slush the perfect beer to pair with any meal or another pint.

Notes from Brad, Head Development Brewer:

“As has been proven over and over again, the combination of Mosaic and Citra hops is a real winner. To take this recipe to the next level, gone are the traditional hops, and substituted with Cryo Hops! Due to their high lupulin content, the amount of aromatic and flavorful hop oils imparted into this beer is through the roof. Utilizing only one hop addition in the boil, the Cryo hops ensure that the bitterness levels are appropriate for the style, while the elevated oil content provides a huge hop character with only a modest amount of hop pellets. The relatively low starting gravity makes for an easy-drinking beer, while (in the case of the all-grain version), the slightly elevated mash temperature ensures that the resulting beer still retains some body as to not be too thin and watery.”

Super easy to brew and tasty IPA

This kit is very easy to brew (only a 20 minute boil!), and the hops are very tasty, with lots of citrus flavors and pine. My friends have enjoyed it and it is a great beer for anytime of the year!

Deep, Sweet Grapefruit!

One of the best beers I've brewed from a kit! The hops are amazing and will be my go-to in future purchases. They provide a very deep, sweet grapefruit note with other sweet berries like blueberry. I also get a hint of melon. The back end is a very nice traditional bitter of an IPA. Easy to follow recipe and a great winter IPA.
