Product details

HopShot is CO2-extracted hop resin that can be used for bittering or late additions to boiling wort; treat it just like leaf or pellet hops added during the boil. The HopShot syringe contains 5 milliliters of extract. One milliliter of HopShot yields approximately 10 IBUs in 5 gallons of 1.050 wort when boiled for 60 minutes. Test batches indicate that this bitterness may be slightly less aggressive on the palate than your average hop addition.

Cascade hop extract has an alpha acid content of 38.8%.

Easy to Use and added pleasant bitterness

Easy to use and added a nice bitterness to my NEPA. I did notice the liquid did stain my kettle but some extra scrubbing took care of it.

HOP SHOT TO THE MOON

For that dank and extra piny hoppiness flavor I highly recommend using hop shot. I will never not use it now.

Does what it's supposed to do

A great way to boost the alpha acids in your beer without buying vast quantities of hops (with their cost and sedimentation).

exactly what its meant for, it does

I think some of the reviewers may be a little confused as to what this is intended for- it is for adding IBUs/bittering to your recipe. For this, it is perfect. I find that I can get more clean bittering from the HopShot extract if I am going for a high IBU beer, without having as much hop detritus in my whirlpool.

What it is NOT for is adding "hop flavor", which frankly really only comes from late addition hops and/or dry hopping. Remember, your nose is the detector for most "flavors"; which are really aromas. Bittering is the only tongue flavor you are getting from the hops. Also recall that bitter sensation is offset by sweetness, which is part of the reason why the apparent IBUs dedend on the starting and final gravity of your beer.

For those of you who have been accustomed to the "juicy" IPA style, these are actually quite low in apparent IBUs relative to the classic West Coast style IPA, so if this is your target, stick with hop pellet additions instead of extract.
