Product Details
Its well-balanced multi-grain backbone offers approachability, yet this radically malt and hop forward transformation of the classic red ale is fully deserving of a double-take. Home-grown Cascade reminiscent of California grapefruit groves impart a citrus twist for a sessionable brew-next-door that’s engagingly drinkable yet, without boasting, knows how to leave an impression.

Excellent red ale
Ordered this red ale to be ready in time for the 4th of July. Very easy boil, ready in 4 weeks, and has an excellent flavor to it!

Best yet
i've only had good feedback with this beer and it's going quickly. I would really like to brew this again with some dry hopping to make it more along the lines of a red ipa.

A nice hoppy beer
Really nice tasting beer. It kind of tastes like one would expect for a west coast ale, with a strong hop taste. Not quite the level of some IPAs, but more than a typical ale would have. Not much of the typical red ale malt taste, as hops are pretty dominant in the finish product. This one was a big hit with my friends who like fancy beer and IPAs. I used the dry yeast US05 yeast and fermented at 65F, and let the beer go for 3 weeks before bottling. A delicious beer with a pretty fast turn around time. I aged a few bottles for an additional month, but I didn't notice any improvement. I think this is one of those 'high end taste, fast turn around' type of brews.

excellent
I have only been brewing for a little over a year so I like to try a variety of NB's extract kits. This is the only one I made twice and that is because it is the one my friends liked (and drank) the most. Give it a try.

Yet another home run from Norther Brewer
Brew summary: I used dry yeast, hydrated with water prior to pitching (not a starter). Primary fermentation for about a week. I also used a secondary fermentation even thought it was not suggested in the directions, also for another week. Bottled and ready 2 weeks later.This beer is fantastic. It's light but full of flavor and just the right amount of hops. It's got a very clean taste. I've brewed 8 different kits so far this year and this would be nearly at the top, just behind SMASH. I'm glad I took a shot on a kit that wasn't reviewed. I'll definitely order this one again.

Good Stuff
Brewed a batch of this way back in April and put it on tap after two weeks in primary. Also decided to use a slow carbonation rather than force carbonate so didn't bother tasting until another five days had gone by. First taste was a little "green" so let it sit for another ten days and was blown away by the improvement. Flavorful, perfect amount of hops and a clean aftertaste. My second batch will be brewed this weekend and can't wait to taste it again!!

Substituded for Crystal Rye and Still Very Good!
I converted this recipe to a partial mash and purchased ingredients at LHBS. They were out of cyrstal rye so had to improvise. Intead of 20 oz of crystal rye I subbed 10 oz crystal 60 and 10 oz rye malt. On hindsight I should have gone with 8 oz crystal 60 and 12 oz rye malt. Regardless this beer still came out very red, malty and nicely hopped (well balanced). I'm sure it would be even better with the crytal rye, but I am very happy with the results and looking forward to making it again with the crystal rye. Will order from NB next time!!

Tasty Beer!
Just got back into homebrewing and this is my 3rd batch back. Bottled 10 days ago and opened my first bottle. Decent carbonation and it is tasty! Nice hop finish and can taste the rye. Looking forward to seeing how this bottle conditions.
