IPA lovers rejoice. This exclusive Brewmasters Series kit was designed by Will Harrison, former Brewmaster for Hopunion's (now YCH) test brewery. Will also led the team that designed the unique Zythos hop blend for Hopunion. This is a MoreBeer! first in that the hops in the Brewmaster kit were actually designed by the Brewmaster. Wow.

The kit features the unique flavor of this new Zythos hop blend as it is only hop in the kit from start to finish. This recipe represents how Will brews his test batches at the Hopunion test brewery (small plug... brewery built by MoreBeer!) Will designs his beers in such a way to let the hops shine. That means base malt, a touch of Munich malt, just a bit of Crystal 40 malt and lots of hops, strategically inserted through out the boil as well as into the fermenter or keg for dry hopping.

Since this beer is all about showcasing this hop we caught up with Will and asked him for his description of the Zythos hop "I get lots of citrus and tropical fruit notes. The hop was blended to get a little of everything in one pellet. We went for citrus, tropical, pine, and spicy as the main flavors in that order. It also has some experimental varieties to make it more complex and interesting." Learn a little more about the Zythos Hop. Zythos Hops

Will Harrison studied at the OSU Food & Science Technology department with an emphasis in brewing. He became assistant and later head Brewmaster at the Wild Duck brewery. He then moved on to Hopunion where he has performed a variety of jobs including setting up their Hop Lab and helping start Alpha Analytics, a lab for breweries. He also designed and installed their test brewery (made by MoreBeer!) and was also involved in hop sales to Breweries. The test brewery was set up so that Hopunion employees and potential customers could actually taste hops in action. The brewery is also used to sort out and select hops from the experimental hop breeding programs that Hopunion is part of.

Get it!
Hops smelled so good at boil. Found as the beer aged about 2 weeks in my keg, flavor evolution was more pronounced and gratifying

Very nice IPA
This is the first kit I purchased from MoreBeer - but it turned out very well. Although I altered the recipe slightly, moving a few oz of hops to the beginning of the boil for a slightly higher IBU, it turned out perfectly balanced for my taste and still had a lot of flavor and hop character in the keg. Would highly recommend this kit for anyone who likes IPAs.
Grain arrived pre-milled and quickly!

Unique and delicious
Odd hop, but definitely good. Unique beer but really good. I got tired of brewing some variation of a Typical C hop (Citra, Columbus, cascade, etc) so this was a nice new flavor

great hop
I love HopUnions Zythos hops! They make for a great pale ale or IPA and can be used liberally to dry hop.
