Our Cali Mountain Pale Ale is an attempt at one of the most iconic pale ales in the country: Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale.  This pale ale is a fairly simple recipe, cosisting of ultralight malt extract, Crystal 60L, and four hop additions.  This being said, don't be fooled.  The flavors blend together perfectly, creating a complex yet easy to drink homebrew.

The bittering hop additions are Magnum and Perle which provide a clean bitterness that balances the sweetness from the Crystal 60L malt perfectly.  The aroma hop and dry hop additions are both Cascade, providing a citrus & floral aroma as fresh as the forests in California's mountains!

I have brewed some light ales and have not been happy with the lack of bitterness. It looked like this ale would be a good balance between taste and acidity.

Bests SNPA in side by side
I had a blind side by side with a few friends and they all chose this over the SN. 'Nuff said? This is my 5th time brewing it, I stick to the recipe and try to be spot on with my hop timings and then quickly cool it down to pitching temp. I do a dry hop of 3-4 days.
Stupidly Named Pale Ale (Cali Mountain?? Really, that's the best you got?)

Hoppy goodness
Clean. Hoppy without being too hoppy. The dry hopping works magic for the aroma. It smells amazing. My batch finished at 5.7%. Carbonation is spot on! This kit turned out a great pale ale. I WILL be brewing this again. If you like SNPA give this a shot, you won't be disappointed.
Strong headed. Tastes much better than it looks.

True to the Original
I started drinking Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in the 70s when it was bottled in 12oz Bud long necks. It is one of the few beers I will purchase to this day. The Cali Mountain really closes in on the flavor and aroma of the SNPA. All my friends really like it and it is super satisfying!

Go to beer at a great value
Best overall beer- and price is right!
This is THE beer that we have with dinner or on the weekends along with some more complex brews.
When you’re overloaded with hoppy beer and just want a good tasting quality beer with an abv over 5- This is the go-to! We always have 3-4 kits on hand if this one ??

Really nice kit
This is my first kit from Morebeer & it is a hit. Easy to brew & came out delicious. At 38 IBU's I knew it was too bitter for my taste, so I cut the 60 min. hop boil time to 30 minutes & it came out perfect for my tastebuds. I gave it 2 weeks in the fermenter , then bottled and waited 2 weeks, then a couple days in the fridge & it was drinkable right away. The ones that lasted a couple weeks in the fridge just kept getting better & better. All in all it's highly recommended.
