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.

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.

So thrilled as to how this turned out. This was my first 5 gallon all grain recipe. I slightly undershot my OG dues to learning new equipment but it still produced a 5.8% masterpiece. This beer is not aggressively hopped. In my opinion its more of an American Pale Ale. In no way does that take from the quality of the final product. It's really well balanced with the perfect amount of bitterness. Titles aside, if you want to call this an APA, IPA, or just a Pale Ale.....Whatever you call it, IT'S GOOD!!!!

This was a first all-grain attempt for me, and it turned out great. Single infusion mash produced a slightly darker coloring than I would have expected (almost an amber). Your directions were easy to follow, and the kit was packaged well, so the hydrometer I ordered with the kit survived shipping. Great flavor! I agree with an earlier review that this might come across more like an APA, but whatever you want to call it, I'm making more.

One of my first home brews. Came out very well. Going to definitely do this one again. Next time I will try dry hopping to boost the hoppyness. Video of my AHS American IPA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BB0aVZMmJys One addition I did make to this batch was adding about a pound of Corn sugar.

This recipe has been one of the favorites of my friends. I made the mini mash version on 12/26/10 and added a 1% alcohol boost. It took a lot of work to keep this one aging in the keg and not in a mug. This one will be revisited and some hop experiments made.

Extract with alc boost. 7 in primary 20 in secondary kegged 6.2%. Without a doubt my best IPA to date. To me this is the little cousin of DFH 90 min. Well balanced beer that a word description does not do justice for. I dry hopped with 1 oz cascade but will be doing many more of this and experimenting with various dry hop additions. For price and results this is an excellent beer and I don't see it lasting much longer in the keg as 1-2 glasses a night turn easily into 3-4. A must try for IPA lovers and those on the fence.
