Got to know when to hold 'em. Know when to rack 'em. And know when to ante up and get in on the biggest game in town: the Ace of Spades Black IPA beer kit.

This is no ordinary homebrew. This kit contains loads of fresh ingredients and decades of brewing expertise. Then they stacked the deck with a whole lotta hops. Four of a kind: Magnum, Chinook, Centennial, and Citra. And get ready for the bluff because this session brews lighter than it appears. You won't find roasted coffee or bittersweet chocolate here, just smooth, malty caramel with a touch of toast and an intense hop presence with pine, citrus, and fruity notes that stand no chance of getting lost in the shuffle. Play your cards, right? There's no way to play them wrong with this kit. Any way you brew it, you'll be coming up aces.
