Ace of Spades Black IPA All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Got to know when to hold 'em. Know when to rack 'em. And know when to ante up and get in on the biggest game in town -- the Ace of Spades Black IPA beer kit.
This is no ordinary homebrew. We packed this kit with loads of fresh ingredients and decades of brewing expertise. Then we stacked the deck with a whole lotta hops. Four of a kind, in fact: Magnum, Chinook, Centennial and Citra. And get ready for the bluff, because this session brew drinks lighter than it appears. You won't find roasted coffee or bittersweet chocolate here, just smooth malty caramel with a touch of toast, and an intense hop presence with pine, citrus and fruity notes that stand no chance of getting lost in the shuffle. Play your cards right? There's no way to play them wrong with this kit. Any way you brew it, you'll be coming up aces.

A heady hoppy batch on this one, I can see why its the Ace of Spades! It came out stronger than I expected, but everyone loves it. Lost a lot of volume though to the hops swill at the end, even after straining it.
Not sure where things went wrong but my batch didn’t turn out dark. More of an amber color. Maybe I got the Ace of Hearts😀. It still tastes good to me though.
Excellent balance of toasty malt and bitter hops, neither overwhelming. Just what Iove about this, now less common, style.
I modified the recipe slightly to add a hop stand and a second dry hop stage to make this beer sort of a hybrid of West Coast and New England styles. This beer is a huge hit and I'll definitely be brewing it again.
Excellent aroma and flavor. Fantastic IPA.
