- Throughout history, explorers have risked life and limb to experience the wonders of exotic new worlds. Now, we’re delivering a beer inspired by the most revolutionary hop variety to hit the beer world in decades right to your doorstep. All you have to do is brew it.
Presenting Queen of Africa IPA, an enticing, big-bodied beer recipe built around the groundbreaking new African Queen hop variety so rare, craft and homebrewers alike are scrambling to acquire them. And we’ve got a limited release of these 34° Latitude hops direct from the hop farms of South Africa slated just for homebrewers.
According to our brewmasters (who’ve sampled a LOT of beer and savored a LOT of hops in their lifetime) the flavor profile of these hops is mind-bendingly unique—a combination of sweet fruits, lemongrass, stone fruit, mild herbal-pine and a slight coconut note.
To let those flavors really shine, we created a recipe rooted in the familiar—a traditional West Coast IPA, bittered with Columbus hops. Then we layered in a royal helping of African Queen hops for flavor, followed by even more dry hops following fermentation.
The result is an exotic twist on a perennial favorite...the best of all worlds, and the jewel of the 34th parallel!

I prefer the 6.5 gal plastic bucket over the Big Mouth bottle. There isn't any real special equipment if you usually brew beer from an all grain kit. This was a very good beer and I highly recommend it. We will brew it again soon. Enjoy.
