India Pale Ale actually came onto the beer scene by reasons of practicality. Sailers transporting their beers in the 1700s on the long voyage around the Cape of Good Hope to India were arriving with flat, sour beers. Brewers began adding larger amounts of hops and increased the alcohol to overcome this so their beers could survive the voyage in a time before refrigeration.

I fermented this for the recommended time and bottled / carbonated for two weeks before moving to the Fridge. It turned out really good and I greatly enjoy it. I'm not sure if I contaminated it or if it's the centennial hops but I get a really odd 'pine' after-taste from it. It's not detracting at all, just an unexpected flavor. Shipping and service was great, will definitely be using homebrewsupply in the future!
My order came with incredible speed. I noticed the yeast packet had been activated and called Homebrew and sent an email and the replacement yeast was soon on my doorstep. Thanks Homebrew!
This is a very good IPA recipe. It was my first attempt to brew beer and my family and friends did not believe I made this at home! It has a citrusy nose and good body/bitterness for an IPA. I recommend it!
This was my first homebrew. Had a hard time getting a rolling boil on the stove top...fermented 3 weeks in primary. Kegged. Tastes quite good, very impressed for my first batch. Friends enjoyed it as well. The aroma is a little off, but that could be due to my brewing process or my well water. It is not too hoppy, I usually drink bell's two hearted, so it doesn't bite as hard as that. Tastes a little tiny bit watered down? I can't explain it, it is probably due to the extract method of adding water to the boiled wort. I have since gone all grain with more equipment to boil the whole batch.
