Also evident is just enough sweet malt radiance to perfectly balance the vivid hop flavor and slowly fading bitterness.

Although lesser known that Pliney or Heady I assume this kit is a nod to a class act brewery in VT that makes Sip of Sunshine and it does not disappoint. Directions are clear and the ingredients are well thought out. If you like New England style IPA's with that citrusy taste and a kick - this is a great one to try.
Fantastic beer recipe! Very happy with the way it turned out! I used the dry yeast option and did not do a starter and had no issues. I plan to brew it again and increase my gypsum to CaCL to sharpen the hop bitterness. Definitely recommend the recipe. I have had good luck with all the clone from NB.
This was about my 10th brew and was easily the best so far. Didn't taste exactly like the original but was very good in its own right. I was so happy with it I gave too much away so I've already ordered another kit. Everyone that tried it was very impressed.
Easy drinking high abv beer. Be careful how many you have if your brewing another batch!
This was my 3rd brew and 2nd all grain. Seems to be a middle point when it’s not quite ready and then too late in terms of drinking. Not happy with the nose or first sip. BUT... the finish is outstanding. Soft, round, Sweet, lemon, small hop bite. Like sucking in a lemon drop. You can also find the original recipe online and follow along with SL. I will try this one again and find a way to fix the front end. Suggestions?
