Product details

Imperial IPA used to essentially mean a doubling of everything in a recipe dating from the time when kings and emperors would receive a brewer best efforts as tribute. In modern times, early efforts at west coast brewing powerhouses such as Stone, Rogue, and Blind Pig often did take that simple of an approach: start with a basic IPA, and make it times two. Over time, themes and variations came about that tweaked the formula. Preference shifted away from malt-dominators, towards a leaner, crisper, less sweet-finishing beer. The hopping regime also shifted from simply more hops at more times to later and later in the boil, spilling over heavily into the dry hop. The end result is a hop-dominated, high-alcohol beer that threatens yearly hop supplies with it obsession over the richest oils and aromatics.

Packed with 10 ounces of hops, this IIPA recipe kit will push the limits of your senses, while a generous dose of sugar helps to dry out the finish for a deceptively easy drinking beer.

Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

Great Lupulin Zip!

This is a full bodied Imperial! A few brewing notes: 1:Blow off tube is mandatory!; Double pitching yeast means this thing takes off like a rocket. Even with the blow off tube, cap was making its' way up the hose. 2: One mistake I made, which made bottling a little more challenging, was the amount of hops still in suspension, even after 10 days after dry hop. In retrospect, I would recommend cold crashing this beast. This is a great hop taste, but with the ABV, it's not one that you're probably going to drink several at one setting, which is my personal preference. I'm sure that I will brew this one again!
