Black IPA 1 Gallon Beer Recipe Kit
An ebony pint with a beige head is surrounded by an aromatic citrus-and-pine force field, backed by a smooth roastiness redolent of cocoa and French roast coffee.
Your inner cynic says: "Wait, wait ... isn't this just an Imperial Stout?" Well, let's answer your inner cynic question with another question: "Isn't a Dunkelweizen just a darker, maltier Hefeweizen?" The answer is both yes and no. There you go, inner cynic.
Incubated in West Coast craft breweries and brewpubs (the same folks who brought you American Pale Ale, American Amber Ale, and Imperial IPA; they weren't always established styles, either!), these hefty concoctions throw all pretense at subtlety right out the window.
Full-bodied, hop-bitter, and boozy, this beer is compelling enough to both fuel and quash the argument of its stylistic integrity, and it goes great with a blue-cheese stuffed sirloin burger or steak.

The recipe is well written and easy to follow, and the end product is very tasty.
Great brew kit!!!
The best beer kit I’ve brewed so far! Very good!
Homebrew #5 for me and my wife, and I had to take a crack at what I've always thought is an underappreciated style. This did not disappoint! Everything you'd expect from a good Cascadian. Hopefully we got it pretty close to the target... My happy palate says we probably did!
Took a flyer on this 1 gallon kit and couldn't have been more pleased. I'll definitely be making full batch sometime down the road. It's crisp and hoppy with just a little of that stout taste to it.
