Bronze Medal Winner, 2005 Great American Beer Festival. “Recipe converted from historic recipe dated from the year 1800. Bittering calculations were off the charts, so we used the same number of pounds of hops, but moved much of the addition to the later part of the boil. Original recipe called for 1 bittering addition. Very earthy, nutty malt character with a tremendous hops flavor!” -Town Hall Head Brewer Mike Hoops Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

Great to Date Review by Twin Witches
Brewed it 3 weeks ago, OG nailed on target, used the Wyeast & fermentation took off like a flash overnight. Put the hops in bags during the brew & removed them at the end of the boil since 14oz. floating around in the carbouy seemed a messy concept... Tasted super when we racked into the secondary - a deep golden amber color with great body. Will bottle in a few more weeks & can't wait to try it after it conditions! (Posted on 12/4/13)
1800 IPA Review by Jeffery

UPDATE! On my earlier post.... Review by Thomas
Well, I'll have to admit that my earlier post was a wee bit hasty. My first taste was around two months and my tasting review is as stated above. However, now after 8 months in the bottle it just keep on getting better and better. So much so in fact, I'm brewing this one again! (Posted on 2/18/13)
Fantastic, even at only 2 weeks! Review by OhReally
I brewed this recipe with two small substitutions (US Goldings instead of UK, and White Labs WLP005 yeast) and it is simply delicious, even though it's only been bottled for two weeks. Surprisingly smooth despite the 8.6% ABV, and a beautiful deep gold/amber color. Well balanced with caramel notes at the beginning and a small, pleasant amount of spice warmth through the finish. Like others have said, a HUGE amount of sediment in the primary (easily 3-4" of hops due to the 14 oz. of additions during the boil), but nothing that can't be solved with a paint strainer bag during racking (although a 5 gallon ferment resulted in 4.1 gallons of finished product). Nevertheless, can't wait to see how the flavors develop. Awesome recipe, and I'm definitely making this one again!! (Posted on 11/2/12)
Great Beer!! Review by Jim B
Wow. Just the right amount of hops and goes down easily. It is now in my regular rotation. It came out to 8.1% ABV and I aged it for 4 months. (Posted on 8/1/12)
Not a big fan of "spice" beers... Review by Thomas
Hmmm, this beer really surprise me with the amount of spicy-ness that it contains. Not saying that it's bad... Just that I'm not a fan of spicy beers. I would have had an American IPA over this beer. (Posted on 7/24/12)
Amazing Review by Charles G
Simply a fantastic beer; the only downside I have is the sheer amount of hop and yeast sediment left in the bottom of the carboy. This can make it very difficult to get a clean siphon - but the end result is 100% worth it. (Posted on 3/20/12)
Excellent kit with a spot on style Review by Jack Tribble
Outstanding beer ingredients. I added a touch more malt (.5 lb DME) and is is very good. (Posted on 10/15/11)
Great if you like British session ales with a bit more kick. Review by Craig
I am a huge fan of British Bitters and ESB's. I greatly appreciate the malt flavor and hint of hop bitter produced by British hops such as Fuggles and East Kent rather than the piney flavor of NW American hops. Though I enjoy a good Bitter or ESB on a regular basis, I've longed to brew an ale with the same character, but with a little more kick. This Historic 1800 IPA certainly fits the bill.

Smooth Review by Rondo
This one surpised me, with its smooth overall drinkability...even though my wife says its a little strong for her tastes....seems fine to me. (Posted on 8/26/11)
Mmmmmmm Review by Willy
What he said. Surprisingly... Surprisingly...I thought it was... Surprisingly good. (Posted on 8/18/11)
Nice Change of Pace Review by rotorueter
As a lover of British hops, this was a great way to enjoy them in full force. Surprisingly bitter and hoppy, and clocked in at around 7-8%. Surprisingly, this recipe lacks any sort of specialty malt, but nevertheless, a strong caramelly backbone is present. Something delicious and different! (Posted on 7/28/11)
