Product details

Is it a half IPA? Is it a pale ale? What's in a name, after all? We're taking you back to school, back to basics, with this SMASH (single-malt, single-hop)-style delight. At the same time, we're hitting the latest in style-confounding marketing-speak: American Session Ale.

SMASH is about taking things back, way back, to when American Pale Ale was edgy and new. The thing is, time travel is hard, and we're thinking there's enough Cascade-only pale stuff out there, so we're using a decidedly new-school single hop: Simcoe.

The pine and jungle stinker herself, Simcoe is boastful and bombastic, packing tons of hop flavor and aroma into a neat little package. To showcase all of these attributes, this SMASH recipe kit contains the freshest, premium ingredients for a clean, dry malt base, with a low gravity for extra drinkability, and a healthy dose of delicious hoppiness. Think of it as a way to deliver a metric hogshead of hop flavor and aroma in a tidy 4.5% ABV package.

Fantastic and Simple

First timer with this kit, but *not* a first timer brewing with Northern. Added 7 lbs of fresh, sweet Michigan cherries for the entire boil of the 5.5 gallon production. Normally we fruit during fermentation, I wanted to try something different this time. The color from the cherries is amazing. The flavor of the cherries is a subtle add to this easy drinking, lower IBU/ABV beer with brilliant clarity. By far, this (even without my cherry add) was one of the easiest recipe kits to start with. Highly recommend this kit for a beginner or even as an inexpensive base for the experimental brewer with visions of ingredient adds. We are buying another as our base for some serious ingredient experimentation.

First beer ever made very easy to make. Was a really good starter beer, fast turn around had it keg in two week. Not a crazy amount of flavor but just enough. Overall good kit by NB
