This Hop Blonde is definitely one that you won't forget!  You'll dream about it.  You'll get nervous when it is near, but you know that you two are made for each other.  The recipe is actually a semi-standard blonde recipe, but it's that "Simcoe® personality" that makes this blonde so unique!  Our Hop Blonde is well balanced, and the dry hop addition makes this beer slightly complex, but still easy to enjoy.

I’ve never actually brewed this kit but have ordered it many times as a base beer to easily modify. I have had great results combining different hops with this kit.

Great Summer Ale
Nice hop flavor. Great for the summer siting by the pool. I will put this beer on my rotation of brews, plus the wife loved it.

Awesome Beer!
This was a great beer, I'm definitely going to brew this again. It's a smooth blonde ale with a hoppy punch!

A nice clean ale for summer...
Altered the recipe slightly, and didn't dry hop it. Came out great. Will definitely brew this again.

great beer
I got this hopping for something that was similar to a chainbreaker. As far as that it failed but it came out more like a twisted tea. All in all it is a very good beer and would be the perfect summer beer
