(Makes 5 gallons) An IPA is like a Pale Ale on steroids - take a pale ale and add more malt, more grain, and more hops. Our version, with 9 lbs of malt extract and 5.5 oz of Magnum and Cascade, is big. IPA is drinkable right away but gets better with 1-2 months of aging, as the alcohol mellows and the different flavors mix together.

Great recipe which produced a very true IPA. Beer is right at a month old now and seems to have reached peak flavor. I have brewed morebeer pliny clone 3 times now and it has been my go to brew. This one may become the next goto. I added about 1 1/2 pounds of light dried malt extract and dry hopped with 2 ounces of whole cone cascade. This raised my og to 1.072.I double pitched safale 05 dried right on top of the cooled wort. It has a some alcohol on the nose. Pretty sure this one will be bought again soon.

Great Tasting IPA
The profile on this beer is OUTSTANDING. I normally brew all-grain but was playing catch up on my brewing so I opted to give this a shot. End result was a great tasting IPA that was very easy to drink. All my fellow brewer friends loved it as well.

Great kit
Think this was our second brew, came out nice. Not really hoppy (easily remedied) , but it worked as a summer beer as is. For what it's worth, my initial tasting notes say: tasting was good and Carmel/malty with slight bittering hop flavor (should probably be considered an Ale not an IPA), but as it warms the magnum hops come forward.

Satisfies this hop head
This beer is easy to brew and the results are fantastic. Great hoppy flavor and this always goes fast.

Great Recipe
This is a great IPA. I added a little extra hops and changed up the timings to modify it. I highly recommend it. I ordered two more!

A pleasant surprise!
Not thin or watered-down as you might suspect from the term American in the product title.

Great IPA
The first batch that I have brewed on my own. I used a 3 1/2 gallon brew pot. This IPA turned out awesome! I will be brewing this one again for sure.

Very pleased!
This is the 2nd IPA I have brewed, and it is my favorite beer I've brewed to date. I'm a hophead, so I added a little extra Chinook and Citra hops during the boil and for dry hopping. Just purchased my second kit. I have a feeling I'll be brewing this for years to come. Well done, MB!!

rock solid IPA
Very solid west coast style IPA. Cascade hops give it that wonderful grapefruity flavor. Bitterness is not real high, so I've been able to share this with my non-IPA-lovin' friends, and they've actually liked it. Ton of hop flavor in this one, hard to mess it up. I like it equal to the MB Columbus IPA.

A great IPA for a decent price
I have brewed 15 different batches this past six months and by far, this IPA is the best. I followed the recipe to the t, than bottled half and kegged the rest. I live in Tokyo where IPAs are nonexistent, but all my Japanese friends and family love this beer. Let's say the bottles are gone and they are knocking on my door to tap open that keg. Buy it and you won't regret it, but don't share it with anyone.
