Ferocious IPA Extract Beer Recipe Kit
If you can handle a huge hop slap in the face, then pour a pint of our Ferocious IPA. Crafted in honor of a massively popular IPA of the upper Midwest, this brash IPA uses 6 ounces of awesome hops for a bold brew that's barely balanced by a backdrop of toasty, caramel-y malt. It's a fizzy yellow beer drinkers worst nightmare, a hophead's dream, and a smooth full bodied brew so full of flavor you'll wish you'd have brewed more!

“Yep, we did it again, another IPA. This time around we present a recipe modeled after a massively popular IPA brewed in the upper Midwest, and this is no ordinary hop bomb one-trick pony. Ferocious IPA is very well balanced between unmistakeable malt richness and undeniable hop presence. The groundwork of highly flavorful base malts provide deep, delicious malt notes of fresh crusty bread, while modest doses of crystal malt and light roasted barley provide this recipe’s complex malt depth and characteristic red-amber color. With a simple early hop addition for bracing bitterness, the end of the boil is where all the magic happens. A combination of Simcoe and Amarillo® hops are employed over the last 15 minutes of the boil to boost flavor with notes of resinous pine, fresh flowers, citrus fruit and a faint tropical fruit subtlety. All of this magic is then capped off with yet more Simcoe and Amarillo® in the dry hop, but also features the special guest Ahtanum to bolster the aroma with wafts of intense grapefruit citrus. Dive into a pint of Ferocious and join us up in the Bold North.”

I made this kit early on during the virus home stay in April. I create my own labels for the 12 oz bottles so the title. I am a big Surly Furious fan so this kit was one I had to make. I really only made one change and that was to dry hop using a mesh bag vs adding directly to the fermentation batch. I think you still get the same flavor without the cloudiness dry hopping can cause. This was the eleventh kit I have brewed and my family including me rated it as my best brew to date. I didn’t move it to a second fermentation carboy but instead went six weeks before bottling with dry hopping week 4. Being the pandemic will last for a few more months I am planning to make a second batch with this kit.
Quick delivery EXCELLENT product...no complaints
The NB experience is always a 5 star experience for me. Ordering is easy, ingredients are always fresh, and the finished product always leaves me wanting more. My batch will be ready June 1st and I know it will taste great.
Good IPA. I have less that a dozen bottles left to drink. Would brew it again.
Haven’t tried it yet. A little sloe
