American India Pale Ale Kit IPA by Young's.
Premium American India Pale Ale Kit IPA for making top quality IPA at home. To make you simply add water.
Nothing excites the craft beer drinker more than an IPA.
What is American IPA?
American IPA beers were brewed to quench the thirst of British troops garrisoned in India. They were heavily hopped and relatively high in alcohol, so that they would survive the journey round the southern tip of South Africa. These days American IPAs are brewed to be drunk fresh. They use large amounts of fragrant American hops, which give them their unique pine, fruit salad and floral character.
Young's use three of the most popular and heavily sought after hops in this kit: Simcoe, Centennial and Chinook. Chinook and Centennial are classic American hops. Beautiful and fragrant, they have a grapefruit and floral character. The Simcoe hops temper this fruitiness because they have a more savoury character.
What does American IPA taste like?
This IPA pours pale gold with a fluffy, white head. The intense aroma of this beer hits you immediately. It has a wonderful aroma of tropical and citrus fruits, a fantastic combination of fresh fruit, mango and grapefruit. Great balance between malt and hops, very fruity with great overtones of pine needles, with slight herbal character with a full and lingering dry bitter flavour.
Full instructions are included in the kit.
Beer making equipment not included.
Just finished drinking the last of the Young's American IPA. The kit instructions were comprehensive and easy to follow. The beer was a typical American IPA with citrussy hops. Have already bought another one from Almost Off Grid.
