If you're looking for a new session IPA to obsess over, look no further!  We recently changed this recipe slightly, making all finishing hops Centennial (rather than a blend between Centennial and HBC-342).  We made sure to keep the Simcoe® dry hop though, as we felt this really brought a "pop" to the aroma!  

While the general rule of thumb has been "one or two IPAs and you're feeling it", at just under 5%, we like to think of this beer as a hop lovers dream.  The type of IPA that you can open up at noon, get the grill going, and forget worrying about how you're going to feel after drinking 8% IPAs for a few hours!  (Yes, we know that feeling too...)

A half pound of corn sugar helps this one finish out nice and dry, while a small amount of acidulated malt will help make those hops pop. The clean bitterness of Warrior® balances perfectly with a slightly sweet malt profile, all topped off with a white, frothy head thanks to the wheat malt.

So what are you waiting for?!  Order your kit today and let the obsession begin!

Inexpensive IPA. I haven't brewed for a while, so I wanted something less expensive incase I screw it up!

This was a nice solid hazy citrusy IPA, nice job guys
Great recipe. I did the extract version and was very pleased. Next I am going to try the all grain. Cheers.

Blonde Obsession is an addiction!
I was not prepared for the overwhelmingly successful response that this recipe generated. 5 gals went fast and my friends are still asking if I have any more.

On day 9, I dry-hopped with 1 oz each of Centennial & Simcoe as per directions for 3-5 days. However, I did not have time to keg until day 19. (10 days later!) I waited a day at 68d and then chilled at 38d with CO2 at 20lb.
On day 23, sampled a surprisingly refreshing, non-bitter taste though it was still a little 'green.'
On day 25, officially enjoyed with friends and it was the number one choice for 90% of the beer drinkers. That keg was emptied before the party ended. One friend who loves stouts and another wine, were constantly at that keg for refills and to me, was a great compliment. ABV 6.8% Simcoe is amazing!

Nice flavor
Has good flavor and a lower ABV%. Nice IPA flavor for a summer day since it is not too heavy.

So Good!!
This is only my 4th brew, but I have to say this is my favorite! Great hops flavor, excellent aroma and love the color. I will be ordering another one, so that when this one is gone, the other will be ready for drinking. If you like IPA's, try this kit, you won't be disappointed.

What an IPA should taste like.
I've been eyeballing this one for a long time and finally ordered and brewed it. I was not disappointed. The first thing I noticed after pouring was the beautiful light color and clean white head. The aroma of the Centennial and Simcoe is awesome. It's almost one of those beers you could be satisfied just smelling. It's an easy drinking IPA that won't knock you on your rear. I definitely recommend it.

Overall good
This is really a good IPA. Great blend of hops, not too bitter at all. Mostly nose feel especially with the dry hop. This is a good thing since the body is a little light malt wise. Great for hop heads who want to be able to have a few, or more... Certainly no kick your butt double IPA, but that's exactly what you need some times. Pitched dry yeast US-04, bottled at 2 weeks, perfect flavor after a month. Worth trying for anyone looking for a light IPA.

Good Brew
I like this easy to make IPA. With he secondary hopping, it;s 'great. I'd do this one again

This could be my summer go-to beer
I'm a newb brewer but with 30 plus brews come and gone in the nine months since I started. I accidentally over-diluted an early batch and have since had all my brews come in on the heavy side. So with a fridge full of strong porters and double IPAs I was looking for something I could consume and still function. This session IPA has a beautiful light color and that nice hop nose. Very drinkable, but still has a lot of personality. My first batch came out 5.6% abv. I know there will be more to come.

a huge hit! even with the hop-averse
Re-ordered this one. Best home-brew I've cooked up yet! Even known hop-haters enjoyed this one cold. Hoppy aromas and flavors really come out if you let it warm slightly before drinking, and ~2wk bottle-conditioning is a must if you want to actually taste all the awesome flavors. I left it dry-hop for a couple extra days - mainly due to laziness, but it turned out great!
