Hops Lamb Imperial IPA Extract Beer Recipe Kit
Pouring a pint of this anything-but-sheepish ale will overcome your senses with intense hop character. Dominant notes of citrus, stone fruits, and floral character relentlessly invade your nostrils while the woolly soft malt backbone and slight honey flavor mingle in the background and round out the palate. Hops Lamb deep golden hue produces a firm, billowy, off-white foam head which serves as the vehicle for releasing the uncanny aroma produced by a colossal dry-hop addition. Be sure to maintain vigilance while enjoying this powerful brew - Hops Lamb 10% ABV and huge hop character can easily render you witless.
Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

Turned out great!
Great beer, unfortunately have not had the real Hop Slam to tell the difference. Great hop flavor and aroma. I will buy this again for sure! Definitely don’t rush this beer, even for kegging. I’m at 7 weeks now and the fusel alcohol taste is practically gone. When I kegged it 4 weeks it was undrinkable.
Tasted beer just before bottling- decided after reading reviews to let it age a bit longer in bottles. Going to open 1st bottle April 1st. Preview tasting sample quite flavor full with just the right amount of hops flavor for me. I however skipped the dry hopping at the end to to personal tastes. Will have to review next month. As always thanks for another great product!
I’ve had 3 tester bottles over 3 weeks, waiting for it to carbonate. Flavor and floral are great, but despite 70deg temp, waiting over 5 weeks for bubbles...
I have made this as a 5 gal and 10 gal batch, it turns out absolutely amazing. Most definitely the best beer I have made from Northern Brewer. Back to back against the original I would say this is easily equal but probably better than its name sake. Brew this beer. Seriously. Brew it.
