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.

Tasting Notes: A decidedly hoppy and bitter, moderately strong American pale ale. The use of centennial hops offers classic IPA notes of citrus, grapefruit and a little pine.
