Flashing Lights is a delicious IPA that is bittered with Chinook and heavily dosed with Citra®, Mosaic® and Cascade. Beautifully aromatic and very easy drinking, this is a definite crowd pleaser! Flashing Lights is one of the many innovative rotating beers brewed by Cloudburst Brewing.

Cloudburst Brewing in Seattle Washington is one of our favorite craft breweries. We met Steve Luke (owner and head brewer) up at the Yakima Fresh Hop Ale Festival and were thoroughly impressed with his beer.  After tasting every beer at the festival, there was no question that the Cloudburst Wet Hop IPA was best in show. 

Steve, being an ex-homebrewer, was happy to help MoreBeer! with one of his famous IPAs.  If you are not familiar with the amazing Cloudburst IPAs he makes, you might be familiar with another IPA of his, Elysian Space Dust. Cloudburst brews up a constantly rotating selection of flavorful and unique brews. Stop by the tasting room the next time you are in Seattle; until then, you'll  just have to brew up some Flashing Lights!

The recipe speaks to me. I expect a very tasty IPA given the hop bill.

One or two packets of dry yeast for this beer?
Majid akhavan on Oct 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I used liquid yeast and definitely made a starter for it. Typically depending on your OG but I’ve only ever pitched one pack of dry yeast for all my brews. I always have an extra packet on hand in case it doesn’t take off or seems to stall though.
What water profile would be appropriate for this kit? (Calcium, Chloride, Sulfate)
Stephen Hilla on May 10, 2021
BEST ANSWER: There's a lot of conflicting information as there always is with water profiles. For the softness and big mouthfeel that you want from the juicy beers you will want a lot of chloride and a low amount of sulfate. Seems most professionals are recommending a 3:1 ratio of Chloride to Sulfate.
A good example I've seen online is Ca @ 120 ppm, Mg @ 12ppm, Na @ 5 ppm, SO4 @ 60ppm, Cl @ 180 ppm, and HCO3 @ 40 ppm. Anything in this neighborhood should be good. Hope this helps!

Quite possibly the best beer I have ever tasted
This might be quite possibly the best beer I have ever drank, homebrew or otherwise. The flavor is so complex and satisfying without being overpowering.

Super good IPA - best we've brewed
We loved this IPA and its one of the best we've brewed.

We use the BRY-97 west coast style ale yeast from Lallemand and just followed the recipe and took care to maintain a good brewing temperature. It came out GREAT!

Dry hopping is easier these days with the little hop balls for sale here, and I was very pleased that we were able to get a really good hop nose on this batch using that method.

Give these guys a raise!
Love this kit and beer. Hops were crazy fresh and grain measured out. It's got that old school flair with some older hop varieties but with a nod to the present with a later hopping regime for a burst of tropical fruit and haze. Love it! I rolled the dice with some us05 and didn't clarify. It turned out amazing! Excited to brew this again with omega tropical yeast - just because... Highly recommend.

I brewed this BIAB explicitly following the recipe except for a third fermentation stage due to my own time constraints (not my usual style); it was excellent 2 weeks after bottling and outstanding 4 weeks out.
I shared this with my brewing club, which has 2 professional brewers as members, and it was well received by all who tasted it.
I was encouraged to take it to the Sierra Nevada home brewers competition occurring locally at the time, but felt compelled to consume all I had left at the time (3 bottles). This beer was medium gold color, fine carbonation bubbles, very clear, soft medium head, at apx. 6.4 ABV. Well balanced hop profile with noted citrus and medium bodied malts.
