Fresh Squished IPA Extract Beer Recipe Kit
Dripping with vivid flavors, Fresh Squished is the beer equivalent of visiting your local fruit stand. Packed with quality ingredients, this mouth-watering IPA recipe kit combines tantalizing aromas of grapefruit, melon, berries, lime and passion fruit that drizzle into a faint herbal, piney background. The sturdy malt foundation of sweet crystal malts and toasty Munich unites with almost indulgent levels of Citra and Mosaic hops to achieve remarkable balance. Pale copper in color, Fresh Squished is overlaid by a fluffy, rich beige foam cap, allowing the juicy aromas to burst forth and enhance every sip.

Notes from Brad, Northern Brewer Development Brewer:
As evidenced by a wildly popular beer produced in the Pacific Northwest, the combination of Citra and Mosaic hops is an instant classic. Late hops additions provide an extraordinary sipping experience full of luscious fruit flavors and aromas. To keep this beer from being a one-trick pony, a fairly modest addition of toasty Munich malt and American caramel malt round out the flavor profile and provides a background for the Citra and Mosaic to shine.
This beer kit was very easy to make and smells delicious, however we ended up with about 4.35 gallons of beer rather than 5 due to the amount of trub (sludge from yeast/hops/etc) in multiple parts of the process. When moving to the secondary fermentation, there was about 1.5 inches of solid sludge at the bottom of the bucket, then in preparing to bottle we had another solid amount of debris at the bottom. A little disappointing to go through the whole process and get less beer than you were expecting-- but otherwise looks and smells like a delicious IPA. We will be tasting in about a week.
Easy to follow recipe!
I was very pleased with this kit and the beer that resulted from it. Good IPA.
This produces a great IPA.
One of my favorite all time beers! Nice and hoppy when if first hits the taste buds followed by great citrus flavor. Already purchased my second batch.
