28 Review(s)

A burnished gold ale with a name to please 10th level beer nerds and a flavor to please all lovers of American craft brews. Taking its name from the hop variety that makes up its late addition, SWIPA is a potent beer with an aggressive hop character that is not quite balanced out by its big malt bill. Eminently quaffable but it's not a session beer - enough pints and your right hand won't know what the left hand is doing. Here at NB World HQ we like Sinistral Warrior all by itself, but it does complement a bison cheeseburger like nobody's business. Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

much better than expected Review by randy

I have a confession to make; I tweeked the recipe just a little. Where it called for hops, I doubled it. I am a hop head don't get mad. Anyway, after 3 weeks in the bottle i just had to try one. I will not be sharing this with my buddies. This is definitely "PRIVATE STOCK". (Posted on 3/28/13)
My brewing virginity Review by Drives_a_bike
Rating
This was my first beer I brewed...I dry hopped it with an ounce of whole leaf cascade hops and it turned out amazingly!! One of my favorites I've done...so much in fact, I'm ordering it again.

I used the dry yeast the first time, and plan on using a wlp001 this next time around and dry hopping with cascades again. Can't wait to do this beer every year around this time!! I love it (Posted on 12/25/12)
Pretends to be a session Review by Duane
Rating
Like it says in the description this beer goes down like a session beer but sneaks back up on you. This is a nice IPA with good flavor. I think people sometimes forget that an IPA doesn't have to burn your tongue off with bitterness... it's not a double or imperial IPA. It could be that my new kegerator is making me bias towards my first brew on tap, but I'll certainly brew this again. (Posted on 10/30/12)
Don't expect the hoppy goodness of an IPA Review by Keith
Rating
As far as I can tell I followed the instructions to a T. Just cracked open the first bottle and I was not thrilled with the results. Personally I love the hoppy taste of a great IPA and this beer just didn't bring that through. Its certainly not a bad beer, but if your looking to make an awesome IPA this isn't it. If your do choose to make this, be warned, it's alcohol content is no joke. CHEERS! (Posted on 10/19/12)
Excellent, Malty Pale Ale Review by BobFV
Rating
I really like this beer - made this kit once. I did a large volume (4 gallon) boil and followed the recipe - used the Wyeast pack and made a starter. Primary was 2 weeks, then about 3 in secondary while I was on vacation, and two weeks of bottle conditioning. The result is a very malty but also well-hopped IPA. I agree that this does not taste like many popular IPA's with overbearing hops - it is malty and balanced but still with good hop notes. A real treat, I will definitely make it again. The Warrior hops are smoother than some other popular finishing hops - not as much bite but very fresh and tasty all the same. (Posted on 8/17/12)
Eh, its ok, not worth brewing when there are better kits out there Review by Brandon

IPAs are my favorite beer.
I liked Norther Brewers Chinook IPA better than this.

This wasn't terrible, it just wasn't especially good. (Posted on 7/7/12)
Good, but not an IPA Review by SlappyDan
Rating
I do like this beer, but it wasn't what I expected in buying an IPA kit. I just don't taste any hops in it, which I expect from an IPA. (Posted on 5/3/12)
Incredible Brew Review by One Drunk Guy
Rating
Fantastic brew. Gave some out to co-workers and they didn't believe I had made it. Kept it in the second fermentation about 2 weeks longer and in bottles for about 4 weeks. Incredible flavors and a great taste. Will absolutely be brewing this again. (Posted on 3/24/12)
