Wasn't bad, but nothing ground breaking

I purchased this because of the excellent marketing for this beer. It's claim stated that this kit would not last, so I assumed that this was the be-all, end-all of DIPA. This was my first Austin kit, and I was very impressed with what you get in the kit. They are even cool enough to include some yeast nutrient and whirlfloc (you pay for it though). I already had these ingredients on hand, so including it was a bit unnecessary and I wish there was an option to exclude it if you already have it. I brewed according to the directions and got fermentation within 6 hours of pitching due to my yeast starter. I used a 6 gallon carboy with a blow off tube and had absolutely no problem with fermentation. The beer is pretty good. It has a very fruity/tropical nose and drinks very sweet and fruity with an alcohol sting. The hop flavor was a little weak and succumbed to the maltiness, but that's understandable when using magnum, which have a lower AA than typical bittering hops. This was the first time using corn sugar as a body/alcohol booster (came with the kit) and I feel that that contributed to a "fake" element to the beer. Needless to say, I like the beer, but it is not something I'd say was outstanding and crave it and I probably wouldn't order it again. For the price, I don't think it was worth it. Here is a few beers that I enjoy, if you like these beers, you might feel the same way as I do: Heady Topper, Swish, Res and Hi-Res, Space Cake, Hop Juice, Ruination

I also had some explosive fermentation with this brew. I strongly recommend that you setup up a blow off as soon as you put this in primary. Mine has only been in bottles 2.5 weeks and it is an absolutely glorious IPA. I'm a hophead so this is one of my favorites. If you can't handle heavy IBU brews along with heavy hop aroma then this isn't the recipe for you. I think I'll order it again right now :)

Ok... Cool brew. Turned out to be around 10% with gravity readings spot on at 2 weeks primary and 1 week secondary. I did a yeast starter with the single white labs liquid vial, and added the 1% boost. I recommend filtering and using good bags for the hops. Taste was kinda unbalanced and bitter at 2 weeks bottle conditioning, but week 3 has actually made a difference into being enjoyable. Appearance = Gold/dirty yellow/orange, not much head at all... some fizzy small lace. Smell = Musty citrus/apricot with some boosy alcohol present. Taste = Citrus/apricot/grapefruit/boosy-alcoholish, grassy bitter aftertaaste. Mouth-feel = Big aftertaste, medium/perfect carbonation, not too syrupy and not too thin. Overall = I gotta let this age a little more, but seems to be a very nice DIPA kit, not your normal West coast style... but Its HEAVY and has a good taste.

WOW for hopheads. A sitdown sipper as described.

Outstanding IPA, but be warned a blow off tube is necessary... I also added the 1% ABV boost and ended up with an 11.5% ABV beer. Sipping beer indeed !!! I will be brewing this one again...
