"Ah, you think dankness is your ally? You merely adopted the dank. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't drink a pale ale until I was already a man; by then, it was nothing to me but malty!"
This tribute to one of our all-time favorite styles out of Escondido, California is big, bold, hoppy, and deceptively drinkable. Black as night, it drinks smooth and rich, with a subtle roastiness in every sip. Full of American and New Zealand hops that blend together in a citrusy explosion of aroma and flavors, this is a beer to share with the most discriminating hops lover. It's a one-of-a-kind kit that will make you proud. It can be aged a bit, but don't wait too long to enjoy this dank brew!
Due to the high gravity and clean flavors of this beer, purchase two packages of yeast or make a yeast starter.
All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!

The Dank Knight Rises Imperial Black IPA - All-Grain Recipe Kit Instructions
India Pale Ale came into the brewing scene as a measure in practicality actually. In the 1700s, sailers had trouble getting their beers to India due to the long voyage around the Cape of Good Hope. Brewers would add larger additions of hops, and increase the alcohol content, and thus, the beers could survive the voyage in a time before refrigeration and avoid being flat and sour upon arrival.

The kit came quickly. Brewed it a few days ago and it tasted great when I tested the SG, good roast and hop flavor. Can’t wait to keg and enjoy.
Kit shipped FAST. Everything was packaged nicely, ingredients were fresh and instructions were clear. I didn't quite hit OG but it was my first BIAB attempt. It's a nice smooth easy drinker that was definitely crowd pleaser. I will be buying the kit again for sure!
