Details

What stands here before you is the result of a quest to brew an outstanding IPA loaded with hoppy citrus and malty caramel. Inspired by a richly malty DIPA, the idea was to create something similar - big malt, huge aroma - but scaled down to a regular IPA.The first version was all about Cascade and although delicious, it wasn't quite citrusy enough. Future versions featured more hops and included Centennial to enhance and sharpen the citrusy edge of the Cascades - that combo proved to be the answer (along with a much larger dry hop addition). From there the amount and variety of crystal malts was chosen to get the toasty caramel flavor perfected. After that, it was just a couple more test batches to dial in the IBUs, OG, and body of the beer. The result of this epic journey speaks for itself - a wonderfully balanced IPA that has a noticeable caramel malt backbone, and a fresh citrusy hop profile with a huge, in your face aroma.

Excellent! Review by Ken in MN

I brewed the extract kit on 22Feb14, racked to secondary and dry hopped it two weeks later and then bottled it on 19Mar14. I had one today after about four weeks of bottle conditioning and it is excellent! Big hop aroma with a big hop flavor that lingers on the palate long after the glass is empty. (Posted on 4/17/14)

I love hops! This established, let me say I'll drink this beer, all night long, but I wouldn't put a ring on her! (Posted on 4/10/14)

I am more of a Wil Wheaton fan than an IPA fan, but good-googly-moogly, this is awesome beer! Nice balance of hops and malt.

Brewed on 3-2 and just kegged yesterday. Will only get better once I have the carbonation levels balanced out.

Good on you Wil Wheaton and Northern Brewer. What's next? (Posted on 3/24/14)

Brewed this up on 2/25. Brew went well. It was my first 5 gallon batch, and my 2nd beer brew. The smell of hoppy goodness is coming from the airlock is intoxicating. Will update when its ready to drink!! (Posted on 3/1/14)
