Young's American Beer Kit - American India Pale Ale - 6.5% 

 

America has always been famous for its mass produced and uninspiring lager style beers but in recent decades a quiet revolution has been unfolding. Two enormous breweries still dominate the US beer market but today there are some 2000 craft and microbreweries in the United States producing amazing flavourful and aromatic craft beers, they have reinvented beer and inspired new styles taking beer flavour and aroma to unprecedented levels. This revolution has spread far and wide, even the conservative British beer culture has changed this past five years as a direct response to the America craft beer scene.

Young's developed this range to bring the best of American craft brewing to the UK. The approach is simple, based on the same philosophy as the American craft brewing industry only the best and freshest ingredients are used, not sacrificing quality over cost. What really sets this range apart is the use of specially formulated dried yeast actually sourced from an American craft brewery, and wonderful flavoursome liquid malt extracts with progressive style hops - skillfully combined to bring you a truly inspired range of premium quality American craft beer kits.

American IPA

Nothing excites the craft beer drinker more than an IPA, almost the flagship beer of the American Craft Beer Revolution. This beer is far different from the stuffy sub 4% beers found in some of the back street pubs with more similarities to the traditional IPAs brewed in the 18th century. These beers brewed to slake the thirst of the British troops garrisoned in India and were heavily hopped and relatively high in alcohol to survive the arduous journey round the southern tip of South Africa.

These days American IPAs are brewed to be drunk fresh and use obscene amounts of fragrant American hops that give them their unique pine, fruit salad and floral character. We've used three of the most popular and heavily sought after hops Simcoe, Centennial and Chinook.

Chinook and Centennial are classic American hops beautiful and fragrant they exude grapefruit and floral character, the Simcoe tempers this fruit character with its more savoury pine resin character. With our US West Coast ale yeast strain sourced from an American craft brewery giving such a clean fermentation profile these hops shine through explosively giving you a fantastic IPA to brew at home that will rival the world's best!

Our IPA pours like a true IPA, pale golf with a fluffy white head, you're hi immediately by the aroma of this beer, intense pine and grapefruit character a side of tropical fruit salad. On the palate this beer has just enough malt to hold the crazy amount of hops we've put in it giving you a riot of flavours tending towards the pine resin from the Simcoe, bitterness is full on refreshing the palate and inviting another sip.
