Product Details
This American IPA beer kit has a relatively modest gravity and an immodest hop character derived entirely from a single hop variety. Chinook hops have long been used by US brewers for bittering additions, but their intense aroma and flavor have caught on only recently. It shows up in the glass with a reddish-gold color and a thick, resinous Chinook aroma that lingers after the glass is emptied.

Surprisingly good
My wife bought me the small batch kit with this brew as an introduction into home brewing, knowing that IPA's are among my favorite. It came out remarkably smooth, with hints of citrus. It wasn't over the top with hops, and both of us were able to enjoy it even though she doesn't like IPA in general. Would definitely purchase again.

Great Brew
Easy kit to make. Good, easy drinking IPA. Was interesting with just the chinook hops. It really give you a good sense of all aspects of that particular hop. Would enjoy some more single hop IPA kits.

Friend favorite
Easy to brew with great instructions. 2nd time to brew this batch and it is first grabbed out of fridge. I need to upgrade to 5 gallon system to keep everybody supplied with great tasting beer.

5 star brew day
I can only comment now on the brewing of this kit as I am yet to taste it( although taste should be great). The smaller volume made a faster boil this shortening my brew day which I liked... Instructions were clear and easy to follow... Ingredients all seemed to be of fresh, high quality... This was my first small gallon batch and I plan to use one gallon batches to scratch that brewing itch between larger brew days... :)

Surprisingly good
hTis was my very first attempt of brewing beer. I had received this as a kit for my birthday and was very excited about it, as I have always wanted to try and brew beer.
It was easy to do as long as you follow directions. The hardest part was waiting for the beer to be ready to drink but, after a total of 4 weeks I opened my first bottle and was very pleasantly surprised. I had hoped for a beer that was at the very least drinkable and with a decent flavor, but this beer was excellent ! A great full flavor with tons of hoppy-ness ! I was hooked and am now working my way through different flavors and hoping to be able to "tweak" the flavors a bit at some point - just for the fun of it !

Good tasting ale and plenty of hops
Just finish the two weeks in the bottle stag on this brew a few days ago.

I am now enjoying a few. If you like an ale with good flavor and plenty of hops, this is one you will also enjoy.

Yes, I would recommend this one.

Cheers to all! ... Norm

Great experimental kit
Instead of using the Chinook hops, I used 1 whole ounce of Citra. Adding the majority of the hops in the last 10 minutes of the boil and flameout. 18 days in primary, 13 days in bottle, equals the best beer I've brewed to date.

A very forgiving Brew
This was the first beer that I had ever attempted to brew. If any thing could go wrong it did in my opinion. The siphone did not work as expected, I thought several time it would be contaminated, In the end it turned out pretty good and a friend who I recruited, said it was very good. I have brewed it twice and it is one of two beers I go back to.

I made this IPA for my husband. This is the first time I've ever crafted beer. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. My husband absolutely loved it. He couldn't bring himself to share or save even one bottle. I'm hooked, I've already started brewing NB's White House Honey Ale.

It's been 5 days since I brewed. It appears that most of the yeast has already settled at the bottom and the foam is now a thin layer on top. Is it normal for it to happen that quickly? When should I begin bottling?
Bryan F on Aug 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Northern Brewer. I understand you are at day 5 and seeing a lot of sediment. Even though you see sediment and the airlock may have slowed down considerably, it may still be fermenting. We suggest leaving it in the fermentor for a full two weeks before bottling to make sure it has fully fermented itself out. If you bottle your beer too early and add the fizz drops or priming sugar to force carbonate, what you are essentially doing is starting a small, but vigorous fermentation within the bottle. Since it has no where to go, it carbonates the beer. If there is too much sugar left in the beer, it could over carbonate it, and it could possibly cause bottles to burst. Nobody wants that. We promise it's worth the wait! Cheers! -Deanna, staff
Thanks for your reply. I'm done with the initial step. I have two places where I can ferment this. A wine cellar at a constant 61-62 F or a kitchen Pantry at 74-74 F which would be better for this?
Carlos d on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend the wine cellar, dark room with cool consistent temp.
What steeping grains are used in this?
Anthony B on Nov 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This kit contains Belgian Cara 8

and Briess Caramel 120 specialty grains.
I am thinking of trying this and dry hopping it...what is the typical ABV on this with say 2 weeks of bottle fermentation?
K E on May 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It should be something like 5.5% abv.
How long does it take for this to start fermenting? I'm concerned about the amount o yeast I did put in.
Carlos d on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You should see airlock activity or the formation of krausen (foam) within 48 hours
