Bow down and tremble homebrewer, for you are in the presence of a king! This 30-story tall liquid kaiju will singe your senses with multiple Multihead additions, culminating in a tropical gravity beam blast of guava and melon. Survive this opening assault and you’ll be hit with an Idaho Gem™ thunder spark of pineapple, and then swept away by hurricane winds of Cashmere lemon/lime and stone fruit. Just as King Ghidora is not limited to a single ferocious maw, you’ll be hard-pressed to have but a single pour of this juicy, tropical brew. Without a ragtag ensemble of advorseries spearheaded by Godzilla himself, King G will reign over your beer rotation till he ultimately brings about the Earth’s next extinction-level event and moves on to another planet victim.

King Ghidora was brewed in collaboration with our Pittsburg, CA neighbors, E.J. Phair Brewing Company. It features a clean grist of 3 unique base malts, with a touch of white wheat for head retention and a dash of acidulated malt to lower pH. With only a quarter ounce of Citra® added late in the boil, this beer shows very little bitterness and lets the flavor and aroma hops do the talking. The first dry hop addition is added to the fermenter before transferring wort from the kettle. Although this isn't a Hazy IPA, the beer will have a slight permanent haze due to biotransformation, which occurs when yeast interact with hop oils during primary fermentation.

Done lots of IPAs. This seemed new and different. Worth a trial.

East coast meets west coast!
Really enjoyed this kit and beer. I'm from the Midwest and never had the commercial version but this was solid. I adjusted the water to closer match that of a west coast IPA, used us05, didn't clarify and it was just hazy goodness. Nicely balanced and didn't last long. Planning to brew it again in the next few weeks.
