Black IPA 1 Gallon Recipe Kit

Black IPA 1 Gallon Recipe Kit

Product Review (submitted on March 9, 2014):
Fairly new to homebrewing; I've done a handful of 1 gal. kits to get my feet wet and try some different styles. I prefer porters and stouts and normally steer clear of anything with "IPA" in the name since I don't like overly bitter beers.

I figured I'd give this one a try since it was only a gallon and I had nothing to lose. I must say it was a beer epiphany for me. A fantastic beer with a malty backbone that's hop-forward but in a good way; citrus and pine envelop with a hint of bitterness.

Opened my eyes to what an IPA can be and opened my pallette. Can't wait to brew this in a 5-gal. and eventually in All-Grain.
