As shrewd as any British trader, the pirate barons courted silks and spices to trade on the blackmarket. Gold and silver to line their coffers - and one treasure they valued above all else – the legendary ales brewed in Britain to withstand the long voyage to India. Rum was seafarer’s swill next to a hogshead of India Ale!
Rooted in the rich tradition of India Pale Ales, our recipe is kissed with malt as dark as the sea on a moonless night, for a dark and hoppy marriage made in homebrew heaven. A gentle bitterness sets the initial tone. Next comes opulent notes of rich malt, followed by boastful American hops with resinous tea-leaf undertones. Bergamot, pine, grapefruit, and a hint of chocolate complete the hop-heavy finish, yielding an ale that’s definitely worth plundering for.

- 4.7 / 5.03 ReviewsTasty kitQuality NB kit as always. Having the Midnight blend detailed in the previous comment helped, although would be nice to include that description with the kit. That 1 lb sure adds a lot of color.
Personal modifications: I added 1 cup of brown sugar at flame out and then added 0.25 oz Amarillo and 0.25 oz Centennial for dry hop in keg. I used the Wyeast 1098 and this was drinkable at 3 weeks at 7.8%.
In short, will buy again.January 24, 2017Pirate's Plunder kitIngredients were all as described and delivered on time.
