The Essence of a West Coast IPA

This Pacific Coast IPA kit is designed to create an exemplary representation of the style:

  • Hoppy and bitter with an assertive hop flavor and aroma
  • Citrus, pine and tropical fruit hop notes from Chinook, Centennial, Cascade and Amarillo hops
  • Dry, clean finish with assertive bitterness to balance the malt
  • Golden orange color with fluffy white head
  • ABV of 6.5% – 7.0%
  • 35+ IBUs of hoppy bitterness

These intense hop flavors and aromas result from a combination of bittering charges added at the beginning of the boil and later hop additions that provide flavor and aroma without adding too much bitterness. It’s a hopping schedule perfectly aligned to the West Coast IPA style.

Included in this homebrew kit is everything (except equipment) needed to brew 5 gallons of hoppy IPA at home:

With the top-quality ingredients in this homebrew kit and basic homebrewing equipment, you’ll have everything needed to brew a West Coast style IPA just like the pros!

Brew Day and Fermentation

On brew day, simply steep the specialty grains to extract color and flavor before bringing the liquid to a boil. Once boiling, add the Chinook and Centennial hops for the bittering charge. Later additions of Cascade and Amarillo lend citrus and tropical aromas. After cooling, transfer the wort to a sanitized fermentor and pitch the included dry ale yeast.

Ferment at 65-70°F until final gravity is reached, about 1-2 weeks. Transfer to a bottling bucket, mix in the included priming sugar, and fill sanitized bottles. Condition for 2 weeks before chilling and enjoying your very own Pacific Coast IPA!

Customize Your Recipe

Once you’ve brewed this kit a few times and have the process dialed in, start experimenting with additional hop varieties, increased dry hopping, or even partial mash recipes to put your own spin on this quintessential West Coast beer style. The possibilities are endless when you’re the brewmaster!

Whether you’re an experienced homebrewer or just starting out on your homebrew journey, this complete ingredient kit makes crafting your own IPA easy and approachable. With some basic equipment and these high-quality ingredients, you’ll be kegging, bottling and sharing your very own Pacific Coast IPA in no time!
