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. Click here for more info.

Easy to make and tastes great!
Just tasted this clone with the actual bells beer side by side. This was pretty spot on. Aroma, color seems exact. The bells was a touch dryer and the clone for me was a tiny bit sweeter and smoother. But but we're talking a minimal amount. This finished at 10.5% for me with a 2L starter of 001.
The only thing i did is adjust the hop schedule to get it closer to 70 ibus. IIRC it was calculating around 50's or so.
It's a big beer so it wont be something I brew that often. But it's a very good kit.
was my favorite beer I brewed in 2016. great hop taste, wallop of ABV, and appropriate malt backbone
This was the smoothest DIPA that I have ever had. The taste was phenomenal and a hit with the neighbors. It is high octane (approx 10% abv) and you have to serve with caution. I used a yeast starter and patience. 2 weeks in primary, 4 week in secondary and then kegged/carb for 2 weeks prior to consumption. It was hard to let it sit but I waited as it was the biggest beer I had brewed and was concerned about it tasting boozy. The concern was unfounded as it was smooth and delicious.
Primary: 2 wks (used 2 dry yeast pkts), Secondary: 5 wks (including final 2 wks dry-hop), Btl-cond: 3 wks. OG: 1.080, FG: 1.016. Took another 5 wks post first tapping to really meld the flavors. The honey flavor really shines through - maybe a bit too much. A sweetened IIPA took some time for me to appreciate, but now I really like it.
