Description

There comes a time in every homebrewer's day, where he or she finishes work, comes home, and relaxes.  We've found this is an enjoyable practice, but even with the game on, the shoes off, and the recliner reclined, there is still something missing.

Enter Sunset Pale Ale: The Ultimate Beer For Relaxing.  You may not have known that there is an "ultimate beer for relaxing", but don't worry, you do now!  Something about the mellow mouthfeel, balanced bitterness, and soothing Amarillo® hop aroma that makes you feel like you're on a beach somewhere, watching the sunset.  So don't settle on just relaxing, do it right.  Brew yourself a batch of our Sunset Pale Ale: The Ultimate Beer For Relaxing!

Based on one of our favorite summer beers, Deschutes Twilight, this recipe features four differet hops for complexity, Northern Brewer, Tettnanger, Cascade and Amarillo® hops.  An extra ounce of Amarillo® hops is included for dry hopping which really makes this beer. The coppery"sunset" color is achieved with Carastan malt imported from England.

EXCELLENT EVERY TIME !!
I have made this beer about 10 times. Always turns out perfect for my taste. Great balance of malt & hops, easy to drink. I have a 3 taps on my kegerator and I always have this brew in tap. Everyone asks for it..

Very Fine !!!
I've been homebrewing since 1992, and can honestly say, this is in the top five beers I've ever made. Extremely smooth and well balanced. Just enough malt sweetness and just enough hop bitterness, as well as hop flavor. This is an almost perfect warm weather beer. it is not too high in alcohol, making it somewhat of a session beer. Will definitely brew again.

Almost Paradise
This beer has a smooth, moderately light body, with great complexity in the hop flavors and aromas. It's kind of like a tropical Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Used WLP001 Cal Ale yeast, fermented at 72-74F for two weeks. Cold crashed for several days and kegged. I added an extra 2 oz of DME that I had on hand so the ABV turned out to be 5.8%. So not quite a session beer in my opinion, but a perfect middle ground for a refreshing pale ale that's almost paradise.
You can see the beautiful "copper" hue from the Carastan English crystal malt of this beer.

Perfection
This brew batch became one of the best brews I’ve sone in 4 years of brewing. Nice malty front end with a smooth citrusy finish. Friends rave about this one when I’m willing to give one up. Instant favorite for me and is in my to do list again.

Great Light Ale
I keep this on hand for a refreshing hoppy beer with low ABV. It is perfect as is although on my second batch I upped the hops by a half ounce.

Delightful
Enjoyed this brew very much. I used WL001 and fermented cool (around 62?) and cold crashed for a few days. Ale was smooth with nice hop aroma but not too much bitterness. Very clear brew with nice light amber color and a light head. Easy drinking; would highly recommend for refreshing session beer.

Refreshing!
I got this kit on a whim and absolutely love it. I have a beer fridge chock full of various pale ales and IPAs, but I like to grab one of these as I finish up my yardwork. Just the right balance of bitterness and aroma, not too heavy on the malt, and just right amount of ABV kick so I can go back to my chores. Not the typical mix of hops. Good price. I used the Safale-05 yeast as I do with all my IPAs and PAs. Seems to work well in my climate (hot and humid Virginia). The first batch went fast. Got another fermenting now...

Response from MoreFlavor
Tried this kit b/c I love Amarillo hops. Kit is awesome, I dumped another 2lbs of cane sugar in with the malt to let it all boil for the full 60 min. Fantastic, not too hoppy or sweet...everyone loves this. OG: 1.061, FG: 1.006 (ABV: 7.2%). Easy kit to raise the ABV with, and the Amarillo hops mellow this out nice. Highly recommend this kit for something that is not designed to be an "in for face" IPA. Enjoy.
