Pick a half a dozen or so kits/recipes that sound good. List them all on slips of paper. Put the slips in a box or something and draw them. Brew them all in that order!

good would be the understatement of the century. IMO it is truly one of the great beers made in the world.

Besides being delicious, it marches to the beat of its own drum, different than most of the IPAs out there, and lets face it even most of the good IPAs out there are quite homogeneous.

If I were you(and I'm also a hophead), I would either get the NB furious kit, brew skeezers zombie dust, or use a basic IPA grain bill like

10 lbs 2 row
.5 lb crystal 40 or 60
.5 lb dextrin malt(carapils, carafoam, ect)
and some corn sugar if you like your IPAs on the dry side

then use whatever hops you can get your hands on, citra, chinook, amarillo, simcoe, cascade, and centenial would all be good choices and hop accordingly

use a 60 min addition to get you to 60-80 IBU's
(hopville can help you figure out the recipe)
then from 20 minutes to flame out add somewhere between 3-6 ounces at different intervals

dry hop with another 2-3 oz.


Basically any combination of those hops is going to taste good.

I think I'm going to have to order up that Surly Furious kit see how it goes. I just hate how northern brewer reworked their shipping prices....but the Bitter Brewer kit turned out so good I guess it's worth it.

I did this same method for my harvest ale except that it was an extract and I adjusted for wet hops accordingly, but you can't go wrong with its simplicity!
