- Here’s the breakdown; Warrior for clean bittering, Centennial for that classic floral/citrus flavor, and finished with a 1-2 punch of Citra and Simcoe for an intense hop finish that covers a wide range of flavors and aromas - from dank and piney to bright and fruity. The Superstructure performs just as designed, bringing malt complexity and depth of flavor without distracting from the hops. Highrise IPA recipe kit with Superstructure - its a flavor skyscraper.
Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

- 4.6 / 5.019 ReviewsHighrise ipaGreat every time. My favorite beer.April 24, 2016WOWA fantastic brew. This is a must. The hops hit you, the malt and hop balance is fabulous. Drank this in a blind test with the Vermont Heady Topper with a group of 5 beer snobs. Hands down, everyone prefered the Highrise. Even my wonderful wife loves this brew. Worst part is she wants to share it with our visiting guests, and the beer flies out of the fridge.July 8, 2014Another Great IPAKegged this beer last weekend. After a couple of days on co2 I had to taste.....and it turned out great! I followed the recipe, but I hopped it up a little for the dry hops. I did 1 oz simcoe, cascade, citra and .5 Amarillo leaf hops for the 1st dry hop, then 1 oz simcoe, cascade and citra for the 2nd dry hop 4 days before racking. Cant wait to have this beer after being on co2 for a few more days. I also opted to try the Vermont GIGAYEAST for the first time. I got a little nervous about not doing a starter, but it finally kicked in after a couple of days right out of the pouch. Also....I have citra and simcoe in the hop rocket for one last punch in the face. DANK!!!June 23, 2015Amazing balance, hoppy goodnessBrewed this about 7 weeks ago. It spent 4 weeks in primary. I did not use secondary and used Irish moss for clarity. Dry hopped with simcoe and citra for 6 days. The galena hops are an excellent choice for this beer and the superstructure malt extract ensured that it was well balanced. After three weeks in the keg, this beer is pretty much perfect. I will absolutely keep this in regular rotation.April 19, 2014Takes timeI brewed this about 3 months ago and I am down to my last 4 bottles. 1L yeast starter, 66-68 degrees F primary. Dry hopped in secondary and lost some volume to hop particles. I used a hop bag for my Surly Furious batch later and I wish I had done that here also. This is a balanced IPA. It is bitter but has a complex malt taste. IPA lovers enjoy it. My "summer shandy" friends can't handle it. It really hits its stride about 6 weeks after bottling. Give it time in the bottle. I'm hoarding the last few.September 24, 2014Wonderful beerI have been brewing for about a year now. This was my 7th beer, and first that I kegged. Absolutely amazing balance, flavor, and the finished alcohol content ain't too bad too boot. Even my fiancee, who does not like IPAs, loves this beer.January 31, 2015high-ER-riseI made this kit straight from the sheet and it was well received. I made it a second time adding 1lb of wheat dme and changed the late addition hops to 2 oz simco and dry hopping 2 oz of citra. Excellent !! Better head retention, aroma and a bit more ABV. This will be one of my staples.March 1, 2015GREATIt's only been 2 days since bottling day and I had to sample one. if it tastes this amazing now, i cant wait what it will taste like in a month! Very hoppy, great aroma.September 12, 2014Great tasteRacked the high rise to secondary last week. Tasted great without carbonation. I will provide an additional review once it is kegged.March 31, 2014Great beerWell balanced beer. Does anyone else have the issue that because it is home brew your friends think it is free? Put this is the kegerator and barely made it through a weekend of football! I guess the left over bottles from those who chose to drink this beer was worth it. Then again, maybe not!February 28, 2015
