- Azacca honors ritual with the straw body of a simple pale ale grist cursed by intense mango, citrus and pine. Mixing up the medicine with one of the most sought-after new hop varieties, Azacca pins firm bittering into mild caramel sweetness. A feast of distinct flavors from complex grapefruit and lemon to old-growth evergreen forest are just a trick—Azacca is a particularly pleasant, sessionable pint.
It took a few sacrifices to get our hands on enough Azacca® for a limited release of this kit. Work by brewmasters and witch doctors alike, a few incantations and a dash of cajun conjuring are all that’s keeping the harvest coming. Don’t count on our hocus pocus to hold up forever—Azacca® has been known to feast and flee faster than a cloud of locusts over the rolling fields.

- 4.4 / 5.07 ReviewsInteresting BeerI like to go to the lighter alcohol beers in the summer and this was a great one to try. It's really easy to make and the hops are very unique. I love the aroma and flavor. It definitely has a citrus character and almost tropical at first, but by the time it ages a few more weeks in the keg it really blends nicely. Family and friends drink this one fast.December 29, 2015Yet another great NB product!I was looking for something different to brew starting out this summer, so I ordered this kit. Boy was I glad I did. I did this as a 5-gal BIAB and it turned out great. As others have said, it's gong to be a great Summer/Session beer. Has neither an over the top hop characteristic or high alcohol content. Just right for the Dog Days. I will agree with another reviewer however, the hop pellets are very fine when they dissolve and tend to slip past any straining methods during racking. Over all a great product.July 15, 2016Great PaleI brewed this using the acumash kit and S-05 because my liquid yeast ended up being questionable and it turned out awesome! Great tropical fruit mango and pineapple notes with a clean finish. This is one of the best beers that I have brewed to date! Looking forward to brewing the Heady clone next!January 18, 2016AmazingHave done both extract and all grain of this kit and both turned out great. Everyone that has tried it loves it. Doesn't last long in my house. Gets drank too quick hahaMarch 12, 2016A Different Kind of IPA. Great!This IPA isn't your standard palate wrecking hop bomb. The hops give a subtle berry flavor that is warm and inviting. There is still plenty of bitterness but it's an IPA you can throw back session style and definitely sets itself apart from the standard IPA class.October 2, 2015Azacca single hop Pale AleI was skeptical about this beer during the brewing process as I had some difficulties in Northern Brewer's instructions which were different than the way I brew. Being a pale ale, it is hoppy. There's not a lot of hop nose, and there is a definite hint of pine. I like it. Beautiful color. I only gave it four stars because the hop pellets went right through the strainer in my funnel as they are a very fine grind, changing my strategy on racking.details here:https://extexanrecipes.wordpress.com/2015/11/16/azacca-single-hop-pale-ale/December 10, 2015
- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 5 answersWhat "Additional Equipment" is needed?BEST ANSWER: You need an all grain setup that can handle mashing 11 pounds of grain. As well as a kettle that can boil 6-8 gallons of wort. This is an all grain kit which requires an all grain equipment setup as opposed to an extract kit which only requires a stock pot on a stove.Out of the yeast options for this brew is there one you would recommend first over another?BEST ANSWER: Mine is sitting in the Secondary right now, so I can't comment on flavor yet. But I opted for the dry yeast option simply so I didn't have to worry about shipping liquid in the summer. I also wasn't worried about doing a starter for this beer with the dry yeast. It fermented quickly and completely with just a dry-yeast dump in immediately after brewing.
