- 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.

- 4.7 / 5.023 ReviewsGreat brew!My first batch of beer in about 10 years. Turned out great. Smooth taste, full bodied beer. With all the hops in this kit I thought it would turn out more on bitter side, but everything blended well. Good head and aroma. Going to enjoy these!!February 7, 2018Purchased
3 months agoGreat tasting red !After two weeks in the bottle, I tried it tonight. The sweet taste of the malt hits your palate along with a subtle bitterness from the hops.
I will wait a couple more weeks before trying it again and I am sure it will be GREAT ! I will be ordering this one again for sure.
I like it better than the plane old red ale !!February 20, 2017Purchased
1 year agoWill enjoy drinking & sharing this one!I made this one on June 5. A few minor tweaks to the kit: 1 lb of Carapils, 1 lb of pilsen light dme and 1 oz of nugget hops (45 min). OG was 1062; FG was 1017 (abv 6.04%). I did 9 days in primary, 22 days in secondary and bottled on July 6. It was ready to drink on July 16. It turned out excellent. Probably the best I've done so far (this was my 7th batch of brew). Will definitely buy again!July 18, 2016Worth the Time & MoneyWorth the Time & MoneyJuly 1, 2016Excellent red aleOrdered this red ale to be ready in time for the 4th of July. Very easy boil, ready in 4 weeks, and has an excellent flavor to it!June 27, 2016June 1, 2016Great Red IPAReally great tasting red IPA. Very smooth. Only thing I wou do do personally is add some more buttering hops. Other than that one of my favorite beers so far.April 18, 2016Solid... but does not knockSolid... but does not knock your socks offMarch 6, 2016First "kit" I've re-boughtLong time drinker, newbie to brewing. This is the first extract kit that I have purchased more than once. Very hoppy, might be a turn off for someone expecting a malty red. but I loved it. Not crazy bitter. Unsure what the projected IBUs are but I'd guess it below 60. Looking forward to my 3rd kit arriving, this will be a good one to drink after some spring yard work.March 6, 2016Awesome beerPretty easy to brew and a great beer. It's a Red with some malt flavor and some hoppyness. Just like the description says. It's right up my alley and next time I might add a dry hop finish to make it more of an IPA. But it's good as is and a favorite of all my friends and family. Definitely recomend.January 17, 2016
