Solid beer, only one bad batch in two years and it was probably my fault (no carbonization).

Over hopped
Bought this kit because the price was right, but am a little disappointed. Not a complex flavor in any respect and overall it tastes like hops were added for the sake of adding hops... the result is an average tasting beer with way too bitter of a pallet.

Pleasantly surprised
This is my first home brew and I'm glad I started with this kit. I have to admit I was nervous as hell throughout the whole process, worried that I screwed up a step along the way. But after two weeks primary, and two weeks conditioning in the bottle I got to finally sample my brew last weekend and was really blown away. My first thought was, I would definitely buy this if it was offered in a store. The aroma was just right, and the color was perfect, a dark amber, just a bit cloudy. I would describe the texture as almost creamy with just the right amount of hop bitterness. Carbonation after two weeks was spot on. I really didn't deviate from the instructions that came with the kit and am happy with the result. I'm totally hooked now, and will be starting my next batch this weekend.

Great value
I have brewed this in the past and it was great beer. It came up on a deal of the day and which basically makes it shipped for free. This will probably become a regular in my IPA brews.

Great base kit
I cant say how this was straight up by the recipe because I used it as a base for an IPA hop experiment batch. But it turned out great gravity was right on enough malt to stand up to a lot of hops and very smooth. Used Us-05 yeast fermented fully within 3 days let it sit for 7 days dry hopped for 5 and tested one at 7 days after bottling and already has a nice carbonation. No problems would definitely order again!

An all-time favorite IPA
I brewed this IPA when it was first offered and many times since. I have become somewhat of a Columbus hops junkie-- find myself seeking it out in other IPAs. Great stuff. Just can't get enough of this amazing recipe.
