Nailed it! definitely would agree that this kit is spot on with the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, especially using extract. did 7 days primary + wyeast american ale (added EtOH boost at brewing), 2 weeks secondary (definitely make sure you dry hop - if you dont like the hop flavor in beer, choose another kit), 2 weeks aged in bottle and it is very tasty. Clean crisp beer with citrus aroma hops, appropriately bittered, and a light bodied base. The hop after taste in this kit definitely strikes the same tone as the real beer. plus this is a great pale ale that pushes the limits of amount of hops for a great price. If I were to be picky, it has a little bit more malt taste, not quite as clear (color is spot on), and not as much head formation as the original, but then again I used extract and there is still plenty of time to age. I would hands down brew this again and would not change a thing with the recipe. again, excellent.
