Hi everyone,
Im new to home brewing (2 extract kits under my belt). I typically enjoy IPA's but just bought an "American Light" kit from Brewers Best that I am hoping to share with the majority of my family that is not as fond of IPA's as I am. I assume that if I follow the directions as indicated I will get a plain and somewhat boring beer.

Can I change the hops to give it just a little more flavor but still appeal to the average beer drinker? I'm not opposed to adding spices but don't want to add (Orange Peel for example if that means ill get a beer that tastes like Grand Marnier)

Any recommendations are appreciated!

Thank you,
