PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: I understand that this kit is for all-grain brewers and requires specialized equipment and knowledge to brew. East Coast Hoppers Kits include Instructions and BeerSmith files to help determine strike and sparge volumes and temperatures. Other kits may require brewing software or a knowlege of brewing calculations to determine water volumes and temperatures. It is up to the brewer to determine if this kit is appropriate for their equipment and techniques.

Style: DIPA

Tasting Notes: A solid grist provides the body required to support the massive additions of six different hop varities used in this beverage.  The hops bring forth a strong mix of floral, grapefruit and stone fruit flavors and aromas. Finally a dextrose and honey addition bump the ABV up but keep the body from getting too heavy.
