Details

One of our most popular kits for well over a decade, this American-style pale ale is clean, dry, and very hoppy. American hops are the driving force of this beer, featuring the unmistakable citrus (some say grapefruit) aroma of Cascade up front as well as its smooth bittering at the finish. Pale caramel malt counterpoints the hopping with a sweet grain aroma and gives this appetizing ale its medium body and deep gold color.

Excellent session beer! Review by Kyle
Rating
Brew summary: I used the dry yeast and did not create a starter and did not hydrate the yeast prior to pitching. I also followed the advice of others and dry hopped 1 oz of Cascade pellets. I transferred to a secondary and dry hopped in the secondary for 5 days.

This beer was much better than expected. It's very similar to SMASH and the Chinook IPA. All three beers are relatively low ABV but with lots of flavor - but not too much "over the top hops" like you can get with some IPA's. I will definitely put this on my list to brew again. I would recommend the dry hopping.

I can see why NB claims that this is one of their more popular kits. (Posted on 5/17/14)
A very good relaxing beer... Review by Erik
Rating
I brewed this beer for a buddies hockey team and they loved it. 2 cases disappeared in about 45 minutes. I followed suggestions in the comments to add 1oz. of Cascade hops to the secondary fermenter. This added a wonderful balance to the brew. I would classify this beer as a lighter version on an IPA. So if you don't want to be over hoppy this is definitely a brew for you. This is definitely a brew that I will be making again. (Posted on 5/9/14)
Great all around beer, easy to brew. Review by Jeff
Rating
I've brewed the extra pale ale 4 times now, over the course of about 3 years. NortherBrewer has changed the recipe a bit here and there, and each batch has turned out great. Easy enough for a beginner to do without being intimated...great for an intermediate to use as a recipe to experiment with by adding/tweaking the ingredients on your own. (Posted on 1/10/14)
its good Review by Elliott
Rating
Its good! If you're a new brewer, follow the recipe EXACTLY and nothing can go wrong. If you want to dry hop it, thats your choice but you risk contamination if you put it in a secondary. If its your first brew, and you like hoppy beers, give it a go! (Posted on 11/22/13)

Yum, Going to Do This Again! Review by Drew
Rating
This was a great kit. It was my first brew but it was straight forward which meant it was low stress and enjoyable. The result was a nice, tasty pale ale. I did dry hop with 1oz cascade leaf hops in secondary, just because I can't help myself when it comes to hops. They were from my first year crop, so next year when the crop comes in this will definetely be brewed again and likely with 2oz dry hops instead of 1. (Posted on 11/1/13)

I love cascade hops. I brewed this before and came out good but felt like it needed more cascade. This is the second time I brewed this but this time I decided to dry hop an ounce of cascade. What a difference! This tastes fantastic! Thanks Northern Brewer!! (Posted on 10/10/13)

After a 10-year hiatus (long story), this was my first brew...2 weeks in primary, then dry hopped for an extra 5 days(in primary), then bottled. After a week in the bottle, stuff came out perfect! Will be brewing this again. (Posted on 3/17/13)
Drink it while the hops are fresh. Review by Alex
Rating
I brewed this as a partial-boil extract kit with WY1056 at 70F and bottle-conditioned it. This was amazing when it was fresh. Despite the hop bill, it wasn't overly bitter. The cascades came out great in flavor and aroma. I found that after a month, however, the hop presence had faded, and it was no longer amazing; only good. (Posted on 3/17/13)

Impressed Review by Stephen
Rating
First homebrew. Added a pound of lite DME and dry hopped with an ounce of cascade and an ounce of centennial. Left in primary 3 weeks.

I thought I had ruined this beer after having siphoning problems. However, I just opened a bottle after 6 days and I am very impressed with the taste of this beer. I just hope I don't drink them all before the next 3 weeks is up so I can taste them at their peak.

Great Beer With Room for Hops Review by Andrew
Rating
This pale ale is my favorite that I have brewed so far. It really started to shine after it had been bottled for about 4-5 weeks after a 2 week primary. I have gotten a lot of compliments from friends and family.

My only improvement would be to dry hop the beer for a bit to really pop the aroma (everyone else here has the same opinion). If you are looking at this kit for the first time, do it! Also spring for an ounce of cascade to dry hop the beer.

I will be making more of it in the future! (Posted on 8/8/12)

Outstanding for the price! Review by Duck911
Rating
Returning brewer after 15 years off. Brought a buddy into the hobby and our first couple of extract brews were acceptable - good - but not outstanding.

Then we brewed this beer. He's hooked, this corny keg is draining fast, and we need to order another kit.

Great value for the money! Brewed it with US-05.

basic pale ale Review by gary
Rating
I felt this kit was a good, basic pale ale, very drinkable but not quite as complex as I would have liked. An additional grain would likely improve the malt character and push this beer a little further. I would have rated it 3 stars but it got the additional star because of the price. For an economical kit, it's hard to beat. If you don't mind adding to the overall cost, the kit could be customized to add more flavor. (Posted on 5/26/12)

This was my 2nd big boy brew (vs Betty Crocker Mr. B). This kit knocked my socks off. Nicely hopped, great carbonation and color. Hands down better than my first brew... 2 Weeks in Primary, 2 in Secondary... I couldn't wait and opened a bottle after the first week. It surpassed all expectations. Will definitely be brewing this one again. It's been 4 weeks after bottling and couldn't be happier. Thanks NB... (Posted on 4/19/12)
Add More Hops Review by Austin

This beer came out perfect for me. i added another ounce of cascade hops in the boil and 2oz of leaf cascade hops in the dry hopping. Came out great!!! The pale ale is very drinkable with a smooth taste and with the 2oz of leaf cascade hops in the secondary it has a wonderful grapefruit smell with just enough hops to drink this beer all summer long.

This was my first batch ever. 2 weeks, primary, 2 weeks secondary. and then bottled. I found the flavor to be a bit mixed and confusing at both the 2 and 3 week mark. At the 4 week mark however the beer really started to come in to it's own. Now at the 5 week+ mark its pretty darned tasty. (Posted on 3/12/12)

Awsome!!! Review by reuben
Rating
A extremely drinkable pale ale, I had it in primary for 2 weeks then racked to secondary for 3 weeks. I bottle conditioned for 3 weeks and was surprised how good it was when I first had one. This could easily be served at a bar, tastes similar to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale but a little lighter and more drinkable. This was my first home brew and a great introduction to the hobby. I took a 12 pack of this to a friends house for NFL playoffs, other people had brought beer but the home brew was gone first. (Posted on 1/15/12)
Way to Hoppy Review by BrewDude
Rating
I can tolerate the extra Hopiness BUT most the people I know really know very little about what real beer is Most tend to Favor the really watered down type commercial Lite's for lack of naming Brands and are not likely to enjoy such Beers as Extra Pale Ale, So for the Home Brewer thats Brewing with friends in mind I'ld Suggest something Not so Hoppy But for me I like it Maybe a reason not to share with friends that appreciate good beer anyway.

This is a great brew! Brewed this with some buddies and everyone loves it. I dry hopped with an ounce of citra hops and it has such an amazing aroma, I highly recommend doing that.

dusty ale Review by bill
I have brewed and am currently enjoy a batch of extra pale ale. It is great! 2 weeks in primary, 2 weeks in secondary and 3 weeks bottle conditioning. Dry hopped in the secondary for one week with the last dose of hops. I do have a question though...I find it a bit "dusty". I use irish moss when I brew. Understand, I am enjoying it very much..great taste. But, I am wondering what everyone else is doing ot try to minimize bottel sediment i am getting. Thanks (Posted on 7/22/11)
Not Bad.... Review by nckellys
Rating
I added 1/2 lb Briess Carapils and 2 cups Lite DME (15min). Just starting to pop the tops on a few. Nice full flavored beer - Lighter than the IPAs (Black and Dead ringer) i've been drinking. I'll brew again. I ferment in a 6gal glass carboy in the basement. I set it in a pan of water and stretch a t-shirt over the carboy to wick up the water and keep it cool. I think this helps the flavor. (Posted on 7/1/11)

Awesome Review by MTB
This was my third brew and it turned out to be one of the best beers I have ever had. I added an extra pound of light DME (wanted a higher abv), and 2oz of Citra hops. I added 1oz of the Citra in the last 10 mins of the boil and used the other oz for a dry hop in the secondary for a week. Also, instead of the 2oz of Cascade at the beginning of the boil, I only used 1oz and used the other oz at 30 mins (I was afraid it would be too bitter if I used the full 2oz at 60). The beer turned out fantastic. Citrusy/Fruity aroma and taste with just the right amount of bitterness for me. Will definitely brew this again and again and again. I love you NB. (Posted on 6/3/11)

Great end to a week full of HB Review by Waiting4VT
Rating
14 college buddies- 3 Homebrewers- 4kegs. We started with a keg of Stout, had two versions of an American Ale, and this EPA was a nice way to end the week. It had a very full flavor that finished very clean. I did 2 weeks in primary and 4 in secondary- finished with 4.5%ABV. I will probably wait until late summer to brew again, but a good 50 degree session beer. (Posted on 4/27/11)
Excellent Brew...Dry hopped Review by Darin

Used Wyeast and followed the directions to the T, except for the last hop addition. Primary for a little over a week, then secondary with the second ounce of cascades for two weeks. Bottled with 3/4 cup dextrose, sat for two weeks and this is by far my favorite kit so far. Dry hopping with the last ounce really gave it that nice zing I love in an EPA. Nice job Northern Brewer!

I always keep this one on tap. by far my husbands fav. He thought at first it was ok but a little flat tasting and then i started to dry hop it.

Good, could be better Review by Jon
Rating
This was my first solo attempt at homebrewing, so we need to take that into consideration here. I rocked 2 weeks primary, 2 weeks secondry, and 2 weeks bottle conditioning. After the 2 weeks in the bottle, this beer still tasted a bit lacking in the mid-palette which was my only real complaint. I would say mine came out tasting like what Minnesota's Summit EPA would taste like if they made a "light" version of it. So really not bad by any means, just not as good as I hoped. However, I plan on letting half of this batch sit in bottles for the next couple months, so maybe it will develop eventually! (Posted on 3/9/11)
Smoooth drinking EPA Review by Jon

I started this batch hoping for something close to Summit and I was rewarded. My version has a little more bitterness but it is early and after a few more weeks in the bottle it should be much better. Very smooth drinking so be careful because it will go fast. This will be my new everyday beer. (Posted on 3/8/11)

Made a batch according to instructions and it turned out pleasant, but a little underhopped. Made a second batch and dry hopped with an ounce of Amarillo as well as the zest of an organic grapefruit.

well.... Review by Franzie

The flavor is okay, it needs something. The EPA could be a bit stronger, but it still comes out as a great sixer to split with my boys in the garage.

I'm finding that my kits are taking longer then the 2 weeks recomended for carbonation after bottling. I've been letting by brews hang out a little longer for a more refined taste. (Posted on 2/1/11)
9/10 Review by Scottie
Rating
My brother brewed this for our engagement party- we had all sorts of other beer and alcohol at the party but this was what EVERYONE drank. This beer single handedly got myself and two others into brewing. Excellent session beer, very light malt, nice grapefruit back and hoppy nose. I made this as my first brew. Instructions are easy to follow. I dry hopped with 1oz amarillo like some others here; wonderful aroma!
It does lack a little on the mouthfeel; it's just a little thin. Maybe add a little carapils next time... I recommend this brew to anyone! (Posted on 1/21/11)

This was my 1st brewing experience and, thanks to NB, it was fantastic!! I give NB most of the credit because all I did, besides sanitizing everything carefully, was follow the instructions that came with the kit. This Extra Pale Ale rivals the best pale ales I've ever had. It has tremendous flavor- pleasantly hoppy and refreshing, without being too bitter. Even friends who only drink malty browns gave this brew a thumbs-up! I expect I will be brewing this regularly. (Posted on 11/9/10)
Just right... Review by GP Brewery

I was hoping this would be similar to Summit's wonderful Extra Pale Ale... and it is. Nice hop flavor and aroma, but not overly bitter.

Brew some up. (Posted on 11/2/10)

Brewed per the instructions but added an ounce of Cascade to the secondary for 10 days to dry hop.

My best Pale yet. Drank this two weeks after bottling, very good, well balanced. This beer had less of the "extract" flavor than any others I have brewed. (Three Hearted, Sinistral Warrior, My Own Recipe)

I also dry hopped this for 9 days with 2oz of Amarillo.

Primary for 3 weeks, secondary for 2 weeks. Very clear, little sediment in bottles, quite drinkable right from the get go. I hope there are some left to try an aged one, but i doubt they will last. (Posted on 8/23/10)

I tapped the keg last night and WOW!! They did a great job with this kit! The beer spent 5 weeks in the primary and 2 weeks under 6psi in a cold keg. There is a lot of back end on the hops, not so much initial bitterness but the flavor and aroma is astounding. Reminds me alot of Gumball head from 3 Floyds. I followed the recipie to the T with the exception of skipping out on the secondary. This is going to stay in rotation in my keggerator. (Posted on 7/25/10)

SImple, quick and tasty! Review by Soltan Gris
Rating
I love this kit because the recipe is simple and the results are always good. Every time I make a major upgrade to my gear or process I try re-making this kit. It's gotten better every time.

I recommend the liquid yeast and the creation of a 1000ml starter. Make sure you chill the starter and pour off the nasty starter beer. Keep the fermentation temperatures below 65F. I've had great luck fermenting for a week in primary, then 2 weeks in secondary, then two more weeks in the bottles at an ambient 70F to carbonate.

I found the malt flavors to improve quite a bit by doing a full boil and using a wort chiller. I start with 5.5gallons to cover for most of the evaporation loss. (Posted on 6/18/10)

I started brewing with this kit and did not regret it. The taste is very good, not too bitter at all. The cascade hops create a unmistakable citrus-like taste.

Excellent kit Review by Beerambassador

I just had my first bottle of this. I added two ounces of Amarillo hops to the secondary to push the hop aroma/flavor even further and it really came out great. Honestly, a lot better than a lot of commercial APAs I've had. I fermented it very cool - around 58 degrees and the beer is exceptionally clean tasting, letting the hop flavor really come through. Not a very bitter beer, but great for showcasing hop flavors and aromas. (Posted on 5/14/10)

Super Recipe Review by Jack

Tasting the first pint from the keg as I write this. It's got a nice hoppy bitter finish without going crazy. Not quite the hop level of Victory Hop Devil or Dogfish 60 min IPA, but still excellent and nicely balanced. The citrus aroma and finish of the Cascades is classic IPA all the way.

This is my third Northern Brewer kit, and the best yet. This one stays in the permanent rotation for sure. (Posted on 4/2/10)
Quite Good Review by The Gentle Cricket
If you like strong pale ales, this is a great choice. Has a very strong flavor, and is pretty hoppy, with not-so-subtle citrus character.

My batch reminded me of Sierra Nevada Torpedo, though with a lower alcohol content. (Posted on 8/21/09)
