New School Kicks is a classic take on a modern style. This Hazy Pale Ale is packed with a two-sided cassette's worth of hip, hop aroma, followed by a soft mouthfeel that is smooth enough to kick back and vibe to, then finishes with a slight bitterness and the dry character of a classic West Coast hit. Press play on this masterful remix and allow Amarillo®, Simcoe®, and Mosaic® to lay down funky beats of tropical fruit, citrus, and cannabis.

Developed by our own Vito Delucchi, NSK was designed to take everything you love from a classic West Coast American pale ale and combine it with elements from a new school hazy/juicy pale ale. His award-winning creation has been brewed in different iterations at several local breweries in the Bay Area, including BareBottle and Danville Brewing Company.

Please note you may receive a hard copy recipe sheet that calls for 7 lbs of Light DME, which is incorrect. This recipe calls for, and includes, 5 lbs of Light DME.

Do you steep flaked oats and flaked wheat like normal steeping grains?

BEST ANSWER: Yes right along with the specialty grains. They will puff up just like oat meal. Take them out when you remove the specialty grains. Somewhere around 165-170 degrees F
What do you do about the flaked oats in the extract kit? I read that they have no mashing enzymes of their own, so how can I do a partial mash?
Ross S. Heitkamp on Nov 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ross, you will the treat the wheat and oats as you would any other steeping grain. For the extract batch, you will follow the normal steeping instructions.

Needs more pop/flavor
It's always hard reviewing something that you made yourself, since its likely partly your fault if it doesn't turn out good, but here goes.

tl;dr: though hazy, the flavor is subdued and not well-balanced. There's a bit of juice and a bit of bitter, but it's not enough to make it a decent beer.

Brewing notes: I shortened the boil because there were no bittering hops (40 minutes), hit final gravity (1.011-13). brewed with the imperial organic barbarian. Smelled great and had great flavor before kegging. Maybe my kegging process has some error because this just didn't turn out great in the keg. I dry-hopped in the keg for maybe 7 days.

I had high hopes for this beer, but the taste has something odd to it (i describe as old orange peel) and the other flavors are muted. I think this beer might be better if it had more hops, similar to the MoreHaze, which I think is a great beer. There is definitely something going on between Northeast vs. West coast hops that is intriguing, but it isn't greater than the sum of its parts.

I hope to see more reviews (and more in-depth reviews) of this beer, because I'm not convinced I didn't do something wrong with it, but as it stands, I won't be making it again.

Extract brewers beware!
The Recipe page they give you calls for 7lbs of DME but they only send you 5lbs. Upon emailing customer service, they advised me they misprinted the recipe page and decided to send them out anyway. The problem with this is I went to my local homebrew store and spent my time and more money getting more extract per what the recipe calls for. I havent tried it yet but hoping it the extra DME added doesnt ruin the flavor profile. We'll see.. Cheers
