The first release in our Crafted range was this American Pale Ale. Crafted series kits use specialty malts and extra hop additions to create beer recipes that really stand out from other malt extract kits. Our APA has US Cascade hop pellets added at canning to infuse their grapefruit aromas in the extract, made from ale, caramalt, and lager malts.
Black Rock Crafted American Pale Ale is brewed with Caramalt and Roasted specialty malts for a typical APA flavour and pale brown colour. NZ Green Bullet and Pacific Gem hops are added at the boil to provide a moderate-strong bitterness. Black Rock APA is is already dry-hopped with Cascade to infuse a delicous grapefruit and citrus aroma.
Brew with our Unhopped Ultra-Light, or combine 2 cans of APA for a more powerful hop aroma and bitterness.
