A big West Coast style imperial IPA, with loads of late addition hops and a quarter pound of dry hops. It finishes nice and dry, and is dangerously easy to drink. Additions of Columbus, Simcoe, and Nugget lend big, pungent American hop flavors, with a giant, heady aroma that punches you in the nose. Heady Nugz is, in fact, a beer that makes a completely irresponsible use of hops. If you are a certified hophead, this beer will be right up your alley!
A yeast starter or two packs of liquid yeast are suggested for this big boy

Got this kit because I love IPA's and it did not disappoint at all. I just tapped the keg and an explosion of Grapefruit hit my tongue. Gave some to the wife and she loved it too. I am slowly converting her from a wine lover. It is a very smooth drinking beer even with all the hops. Came in at 9.9 ABV too. Just make sure you have an 8 gallon pot minimum when brewing this excellent beer

Perfect IPA
Strong hops, but not so strong that they overpower the beer. Straight forward brew, hit with everyone who's tried it. Will be brewing again.

Simply amazing
This beer is worth every penny, one of my favorite IPA's around and it packs a punch. Just like all of Great Fermentation recipes it had very easy to follow instructions. I would recommend this brew to anyone that loves hoppy beers.
