not a hoppy IPA kit
A low budget IPA kit. I replaced all the hopps in the kit with my own choices. Cenntenial,cascade,and dry-hopped with Amarillo. I brewed the mini-mash with wyeast liquid yeast . Even with my hopps,still a mild IPA,not bad,not great.

AHS does not provide the recipe prior to purchase, so I'll be careful not to expose the actual recipe, but there are some important things to note. The kit comes with only 3 ounces of hops - including 1 ounce for dry hopping. As far as I'm concerned, that's not enough to call a kit an IPA. I was concerned that there would not be enough hops, so I also ordered 2 ounces of nugget hops that I added at 30 mins and at flameout. The resulting brew is not bad, but I will not purchase this kit again because it is not what I consider an IPA.

Excellent brew. Non-IPA drinkers were converted. Best brew so far.

Batch maybe about #70. Mini mash - I have not always given AHS glowing remarks on a few of their recipes - in fact a few I just did not like at all. First let me say that this is a crowd pleaser even for (as some have mentioned) non-IPA people which makes perfect sense. I feel this is more like a stronger Amber or perhaps an American Brown. Here is why. For one thing AHS always over estimates the ABV. No way will this get to 6.6% unless you have 100% brewery efficiency and with an extract no way will that EVER happen 70% IF you are lucky. IPA? hmmmm 3 oz's of hops TO ME is not an American IPA - British IPA is closer with the Special B adding a lot of Carmel and darkness. AGAIN - very very good brew!! In fact it will be offered in a brewery as a guest tap so . . . . . . It'll turn out darker then an American and with only an estimated 35 IBUs it falls short. HOWEVER - the good news - it's a WONDERFUL beer. It's a quaffer and before you know it your glass is empty. The American Ale II should be brewed on the warmer side, closer to 70 for more hops, cooler for cleaner brew. The Special B is what makes this beer so tasty. Go for it if you want a beer that will please everybody but if you are looking for a hop bomb look elsewhere.

Best beer yet from AHS! I'm not a "hop-head" so a little leary of the IPA family. This kit is does not have that overwhelming hop content and was balanced well. Based on the above comments I tried the extract kit with alcohol boost and the taste was fantastic! You have to try it.
