- Pouring a pint of this anything-but-sheepish ale will overcome your senses with intense hop character. Dominant notes of citrus, stone fruits, and floral character relentlessly invade your nostrils while the woolly soft malt backbone and slight honey flavor mingle in the background and round out the palate. Hops Lamb’s deep golden hue produces a firm, billowy, off-white foam head which serves as the vehicle for releasing the uncanny aroma produced by a colossal dry-hop addition. Be sure to maintain vigilance while enjoying this powerful brew - Hops Lamb’s 10% ABV and huge hop character can easily render you witless.

- 4.5 / 5.06 ReviewsGo EasyFantastic super hoppy beer with a great citrus smell. I will absolutely make this again but will bottle it instead of kegging. Putting it on tap got everyone at our last party sloppy really quick.July 6, 2016Sneaky, dangerously smoothThis was the smoothest DIPA that I have ever had. The taste was phenomenal and a hit with the neighbors. It is high octane (approx 10% abv) and you have to serve with caution. I used a yeast starter and patience. 2 weeks in primary, 4 week in secondary and then kegged/carb for 2 weeks prior to consumption. It was hard to let it sit but I waited as it was the biggest beer I had brewed and was concerned about it tasting boozy. The concern was unfounded as it was smooth and delicious.September 25, 2016Best Beer We've BrewedThis is the stickiest of the ickiest most hop forward and DELICIOUS recipe we have ever brewed. Also one of the first two batches we've kegged (so stoked). This recipe will be always on tap in our keezer. Bravo NB. Just ordered our second kit!May 26, 2016Impressive Kit Provides Enjoyable Brewing ExperienceI took as chance on this all-grain kit as I'm very new to all-grain brewing. The instructions where helpful as was the Brewemaster's Chat prior to firing up the kettles.The fermentation process is well underway and providing a hop-heavenly aromatic ambiance in my basement. Will offer up another snippet when we tap the keg.Cheers!February 2, 2016Response from Northern BrewerThanks for the review! Cheers!November 21, 2016Northern Brewer NSweet honey-flavored IIPAPrimary: 2 wks (used 2 dry yeast pkts), Secondary: 5 wks (including final 2 wks dry-hop), Btl-cond: 3 wks. OG: 1.080, FG: 1.016. Took another 5 wks post first tapping to really meld the flavors. The honey flavor really shines through - maybe a bit too much. A sweetened IIPA took some time for me to appreciate, but now I really like it.July 9, 2016pretty close!I just kegged up my first batch of this about a week ago and tasted it today. It does taste very similar to the original, but a little bit stronger hop after-taste, but that may be because I put the hops (in hop sock) directly into the keg. I brewed a second batch of this a few days ago with some local Ohio yeast and plan to just dry hop as directed for this next one.April 3, 2016
