A big, West Coast Double IPA crammed with loads of aroma hops! Piney the Welder is a clone of another similarly-named "elder" beer that has been named the #1 beer in America by the AHA many times over. It gets its bitterness from hop extract, delivering a good hop bite and character that balances out the maltiness of the beer. Using a little bit of Crystal 60L and Carapils to give the beer character. A plethora of American hops give this beer big hop flavor and aroma. Three huge, very American hops contribute to this hoppiness: Centennial, Columbus and Simcoe. With a load of hops going in at the end of the boil and at dry hop time, Piney comes out like liquid hop nectar. The perfect double IPA for true hop heads!

Recipe was true to the real thing. GF has been the best place to purchase beer stuff for a long time. I have been a customer for a long time (since about '96) and will always continue to use GF.

Owner Response: Thanks, Steve! Glad to hear the beer turned out great, and we truly value your loyalty as a customer. Cheers!
So brewed this all according to the instructions and its been kegged for a few weeks. The aroma is fantastic - easily the best aroma I've got on a homebrew and the hop taste is not overly hoppy but actually really very balanced. This is a top notch recipe and kit even though it costs a bit more than others but its worth it. Would definitely recommend.

Great beer!
A very hoppy and smooth DIPA. The premeasured dry hops are convenient. Easy to follow directions. My specs were nearly spot on with the recipe. The hop extract at the start of the boil, in one one, bitter! I really like the extract in lieu of pellet hops.
