This was kegged and didn't last long. Very smooth and good aroma. Darker than I had expected, but no effects on taste. GOOOD - coachG

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.

I brewed the all-grain version without the alcohol boost and it really turned out great. I dry hopped with 2oz of cascade for one week and it made it all the better. The aroma is fantastic while still having a balanced flavor profile. I plan on brewing this recipe again.

I used the mini-mash kit. Used a yeast starter, fermentation started within hours and finished in under a week. I left it in the fermenter for three weeks to clear up (and because I got busy). Went straight from primary to bottles. Refrigerated a few after 3 weeks in bottles, and they tasted great! Even the wife likes them, after my last couple batches of beer have been sub-par. Some people commented this isn't hoppy enough for an IPA. I think it's plenty hoppy, and I'm glad I did not add more hops than what comes with the kit. It has good bitterness and hoppy aroma. This should satisfy most people's quench for something hoppy and easy to drink. I would only add more hops if you're a big hophead drinker.

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.
