If you enjoyed Hop Cult IPA, you'll love this kit!
This American IPA beer kit has a relatively modest gravity and an immodest hop character derived entirely from a single hop variety. Chinook hops have long been used by US brewers for bittering additions, but their intense aroma and flavor have caught on only recently. This kit is a bit lower in gravity and lighter in body than our other IPA recipe kits, which enhances the perceived bitterness and reduces the aging requirements. It shows up in the glass with a reddish-gold color and a thick, resinous Chinook aroma that lingers after the glass is emptied.

Generally not big on IPAs but I’m really happy with this one. Somehow I misplaced the last ounce of chinook hops for dry hopping in the secondary, maybe included in the original boil, anyway I dry hopped with my home grown Columbus hops in the spirit of discovery. It turned out great, a needed light crisp brew for these hot summer days.
This recipe kit was easy to brew and the fermentation was close to being done after a week. I did not use a secondary fermentation and waited another week plus to bottle. I had my first taste and was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed all 22 ounces. This brew was one of three recipe kits. I am waiting to try the other two.
Thanks Midwest Supplies for all the kits. I enjoy brewing but drinking the brews is even better.
Enjoyable beer. Good balance and bitterness.
Good beer. Easy to drink with light spruce flavor from the Chinook hop (to my taste buds). Next time, I would increase the hop volume in the boil to give more bitterness and robust hop flavor; I find the hop profile a little lacking on this one. Still good- just room for improvement IMHO.
