This is our brew-class APA and probably our most popular recipe at this point.

It’s got a more complex grain bill than some of our other recipes, but a bit of a simpler hop bill.

The hops are almost all Summit, which have a citrusy flavour sometimes described as orange, tangerine, and grapefruit.

A touch of Willamette in the dry-hopping adds a bit of an earthy, floral note. Willamette is always a great bet for a dry hop!

A lot of people use this recipe as a base and change up the Summit for other citrusy, fruity hops, like Citra or Mosaic.

This recipe is £17.
