History has known this terrifying ale by many names: Darth Humulus, One Pound Johnny, the Green Monster, Cerveza del Diablo, Lord of the Fly Sparge, Harvester of Cones. There's no need for us to gild the lily, so how about some data followed by some facts: one pound of hops (yeah, a pound of hops), 9.2% abv, IBUs in the neighborhood of 120, BU:GU ratio of 1.2:1.
Hopbursting is a technique that contributes a significant percentage of a beer's total bitterness through late additions, which as a byproduct creates a psychedelic amount of hop aroma and flavor. This kit uses enough ingredients to brew at least four session beers.
If you serve this beer to a Michelob Ultra drinker, he or she will cry. If life were a 1950s horror flick, this I2PA would climb out of the fermenter and turn on its master. Your dentist does not want you to brew or drink this beer. Sorry in advance about your tooth enamel.
Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

- 4.5 / 5.069 ReviewsLittle CarbI was very excited about brewing this beer. Followed the directions to a tee. Unfortunately, there is little to no carb after 6 weeks of bottle conditioning. Hopefully this improves overtime. For now it stored away until I get desperate. All in all disappointing.May 5, 2017Ode to BOBthis is one of my favorites. A great beer to honor Mr. DylanFebruary 21, 2017Purchased
1 year agoIn the fermentorI have made this kit 3-4 times. It's a very strong beer. Loaded with hops and malts.June 30, 2016Turned out greatI'm pretty happy how this turned out. Cracked open my first bottle of last Thursday. This beer is a face full of hops, but I think it balances out with its malt. I suppose its pretty heavy handed on the back-end. My batch finished out at 8.3% OG: 1.078. I think I may have added a half gallon too much water, but that's my own fault.May 25, 2016115th dream hopbursted dry hoppedwe were drinking a cascade mountain ipa.tim, suggested we do a 115th dream hopbursted and dry hop.115th is a great ipa,waves of piney grapefruit between waves of bitter,ending in bitter taste on end.we did full volume boil,put in primary.moved beer to secondary dry hopped last week with two ounces of citra and two ounces cascade,used hop bag using old corny keg, posts bad but good container for dry hopping.cold crashed for five days,racked into keg.cold crashing really drops everthing to bottom,yeast and hop particles.dry hopping gave this beer a good citrus after taste,and 120 ibu has great bitter ipa taste.we have made five kits of cascade mountain,and five 115th dream hopbursted both great.115th dream our favorite if you like hoppy and bitter ipa try this.May 1, 2016truly northern brewers best kitThis is the perfect kit for the home brewer who is adventurous but just has basic equipment. I highly recommend straining before putting in carboy or else you will lose half your beer with the sludge. This is one of the best beers I have ever had and the profile changes over time so hide some at a relative's house that you only see once a year so that you can age them without being tempted!April 3, 2016Excellent beerI haven't got to try this beer yet because it is still conditioning, but I am sure it will be excellent like all the other beers I have bought from Northern Brewer.December 30, 2015115 dream hopbursted.a good candiate115 dream hopbursted.a good candiate for dry hoppingDecember 19, 2015not sure what happenedEach bottle i crack is hit or miss. The color came out much darker than the picture and it came out very sweet. I was hoping it was going to be more like the 90 minute IPA from DFH but it was not. My abv came out around 9.5. The hops were almost too much for me so I wouldn't get it again especially after finding out that the Dead Ringer is a Bell's Two Hearted Clone.March 26, 2015Great beer, slow to carb thoughThis review is a long time in the making, I brewed this one now last summer and am only now getting around to reviewing this one.This is a wonderful IPA, and most likely one I'll be leaving in my brewing recipe book. With all the hops that go into this one I was expecting a much bigger hop note when drinking, but it is well balanced with the malt in this one, still, as is stated in the directions and marketing for this one, this beer isn't for the feint of heart or Miller Light drinkers in the world. Only issue I had with this one is it took a LONG time, and I mean a LONG time to carb up in the bottle. I added additional yeast before bottling and it still took close to two months for bottles to come out and not be flat. Next time I brew this one I may try using Prime Dose instead of priming sugar and see if I get any better results. I'm down to just under my last case, and it's going to go fast, even though I only limit this to my close beer drinking friends.March 8, 2015
- Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 6 answersI have always wondered what the proper procedure is for late addition LME. This recipe calls for 6lb of LME and hops to be added with 15min left in the boil. Firstly, do I turn the flame off to add the LME? Doing so would stop the boil. Then, after the LME is added, do I return to a boil before I add the 15min hop addiction or do I just let the timer keep ticking even though I've briefly stopped the boil? I've never fully understood the proper sequence so any info would help.BEST ANSWER: Hello Louski,
Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! You can just stir that DME into the boil at 15 minutes, no need to stop the boil, just keep on chugging away. You can add the hops before adding the DME or after. Either way, the beer will turn out the same. I hope that this helps!I'm so new to home brewing that I haven't brewed anything yet but am set to order the brew share enjoy kit.
