An enticing, big-bodied beer recipe built around the groundbreaking new African Queen hop variety so rare, craft and homebrewers alike are scrambling to acquire them.

To feature the flavors of these exotic, limited release hops, we created a recipe rooted in the familiar—a traditional West Coast IPA, bittered with Columbus hops. Then we layered in a royal helping of African Queen hops for flavor, followed by even more dry hops following fermentation.

The result is an exotic twist on a perennial favorite...the best of all worlds, and the jewel of the 34th parallel!

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary Cold Ice Packs with all liquid yeasts. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip, given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Product Details
Throughout history, explorers have risked life and limb to experience the wonders of exotic new worlds. Now, we’re delivering a beer inspired by the most revolutionary hop variety to hit the beer world in decades right to your doorstep. All you have to do is brew it.

Presenting Queen of Africa IPA, an enticing, big-bodied beer recipe built around the groundbreaking new African Queen hop variety so rare, craft and homebrewers alike are scrambling to acquire them. And we’ve got a limited release of these 34° Latitude hops direct from the hop farms of South Africa slated just for homebrewers.

According to our brewmasters (who’ve sampled a LOT of beer and savored a LOT of hops in their lifetime) the flavor profile of these hops is mind-bendingly unique—a combination of sweet fruits, lemongrass, stone fruit, mild herbal-pine and a slight coconut note.

To let those flavors really shine, we created a recipe rooted in the familiar—a traditional West Coast IPA, bittered with Columbus hops. Then we layered in a royal helping of African Queen hops for flavor, followed by even more dry hops following fermentation.

The result is an exotic twist on a perennial favorite...the best of all worlds, and the jewel of the 34th parallel!

So I have been waiting to drink this for a while. My daughter an I brewed this for my father's visit. 11pri 11sec'd placed in a keg, for another week. Then placed in kegerator at 11psi for 15days. Abv 9.2%. Used omega west coast ale 1 gen 2, 1500ml starter. Good IPA, nice hop flavor and aroma. Glad I know it's 9.2%. Goes down easy, and could easily foresee anyone quickly getting caught offgaurd and hammered by this 9.2% IPA. Yum. Only draw back is price.

What is the best way to dry hop? I have siphonless big mouth bubbles. I brewed this Sunday. Hitting a 1075 og (corrected to 1076) using omega west coast ale 1.
Matthew M on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Matthew- There are many different ways to dry hop. Our Big Mouth Bubbler Depth Charge is a great option. This will create less sediment and lost beer when you go to bottle. You can also just toss pellets direct into the fermenting beer. The pellets will initially float, and then eventually most will fall to the bottom. Another option is to use a tied off muslin bag with some kind of food safe weight to help the bag sink. This will hop the beer and minimize hop flakes.
Will this beer brew properly without a yeast starter? I have never done a starter on my own but I am interested in brewing this.

BEST ANSWER: If you get the dry yeast you will not need a yeast starter to brew this beer.
Will this beer brew effectively without a yeast starter? It has a relatively high gravity but no recommendation and I am hoping I can forgo the starter
