A gorgeous yet unassuming crimson-colored brew, West Coast Radical Red Ale is strikingly familiar in its smooth, copper body and distinctively American, crisp clean character.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary Cold Ice Packs with all liquid yeasts. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip, given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Product Details
Its well-balanced multi-grain backbone offers approachability, yet this radically malt and hop forward transformation of the classic red ale is fully deserving of a double-take. Home-grown Cascade reminiscent of California grapefruit groves impart a citrus twist for a sessionable brew-next-door that’s engagingly drinkable yet, without boasting, knows how to leave an impression.

Love it!
Without a doubt this is my favorite NB kit so far. Assertively hoppy but with a solid backbone. You can't go wrong with this one, highly recommended.

Good Beer
The flavor is nice and hoppy and it's not overly sweet. I'll definitely use this recipe again.

Absolutely Wonderful Brew
This brew is awesome. I'm a big fan of Red beers, and this one is definitely one of the better red beers I've ever brewed or had. I'm thinking of adding some dry hops to give it a more hop-bomb flavor.I toured the Point Brewery in Stevens Point, Wisconsin this weekend, and I had their James Page Ould Sod Irish Red IPA (http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/james-page-ould-sod-irish-red-ipa/219564/). That was a great red IPA. It was a little hopper than the West Coast Radical Red by NorthernBrewer. That's why I'm going to add some dry-hops to my next batch. To really help bring out the malt and the hop flavors.I'm currently brewing a second batch of the Plinian Legacy (which is awesome, btw). As soon as the Plinian is done, I'll be brewing another batch of the West Coast Radical Red. I'm hoping I'll have both beers done in time to take with me when I visit friends in SoCal for the Stone Brewing Festival (http://www.stonebrew.com/anniv/) in August.

amazing balance
I can't believe this kit isn't more popular. The unique malt flavor is perfectly balanced by the citrus hop profile.. This is a beer that will be in regular rotation henceforth, something for everyone. My wife loves it, my hothead friends love and even ol bud light Ryan thinks it's good. A real crowd pleaser.

Surprisingly Good
This is just about done bottle conditioning and so far I am very pleased. This brew is complex and rich, it is not red but dark brown with a tinge of red. It looks and tastes more like a porter or stout which is a pleasant surprise! The nose tells the yeast was a safale US-05 with some citrus and banana. The banana probably came from a relatively warm ferment for 24-30 hours. It will be sessionable I think. I fly sparged and got good efficiency. Would love to hear others experience with this brew. So far I love it even though it did not end up as expected.

West Coast Radical
Brewed this one last night. Grains had an awesome aroma, wort even better. Great combination of hops. Very excited to taste this one

A damn fine brew
This was a pretty simple recipe that made for a super smooth brew day. I let it sit an extra week in the fermentor before kegging it up (which was the first homebrew I ever kegged in the NB twin draft brewer system - only one hooked up currenty). I let it force carbonate for three days, turned it down to serving psi and was ridiculously pleased. Really flavorful on the front with a good hop kick on the finish. I don't foresee this one lasting very long, especially because it's so much more accessible being on tap! Highly recommended.
