Zombie Dirt Pale Ale Extract Beer Recipe Kit
One whiff of the infectious aromatics is enough to reanimate the dead. Zombie Dirt is a ballad to the epicly hard-to-find pale ale of the Midwest, an epidemic centered just outside of Chicago. Loaded with 8 oz. of pure Citra hops, this pale ale is rarer than zombified-unicorn dust.
- Brewed with 100% Citra hops.
- Moderate kettle additions and large dry hop additions push the aroma of this beer to the maximum.
- Flavors and aromas of tropical fruits and citrus dominate, but are well balanced by the slightly toasty malt character brought forth by the addition of Munich malt.
- This is a beer intended to be consumed very fresh - the hop character will fade quickly with age.

Staggering citrus, melon and passion fruit come alive in this pale, single-hop Citra showcase. Toasty malt limps in the background as the apocalyptic bite of grapefruit-honeydew hop character lurches forward. Zombie Dirt is the only defense against homebrew hunger, but a single pint is never enough protection.

This is probably the best beer I’ve made so far from NB. You guys nailed it! I also learned some things from making this batch too (extract, glass carboys for primary and secondary fermentation). 1- I’d prob opt to make a little bit bigger than 5 gallons as I ended up losing about 10 bottles of final product. This was due to leftover sludge from all the initial ingredients (mostly malt), and then from the dry hops, I just couldn’t get as much I wanted from the secondary. But it’s a great beer from the very first bottle. Thanks NB!
I really like the Citrus and it's kind of dry but there's way too many hops other than that it's a good beer
Great tasting beer! Mine turned out heavier and hillier than I would expect a pale ale but it was still tasty
My 6th kit from Northern, seems like each one turns out better than the last. Bold citrus flavors. Compares nicely with the original Zombie Dust, a little darker but so what. I'll be using the Imerial Yeast (A09) again.
I saved some Zombie Dust to compare with this and, while not exact, it was close. Zombie Dirt had a bit more hop bitterness but still had the fruitiness you want. It got better with time. After a month, it was a favorite to drink for me and several hop loving friends. A few of my friends who claim not to love IPA said they liked it too. I’d drink this as my standard IPA (technically a pale?) all the time.
