Notes / Commercial Description:
To explain what Chinook hops were able to bring to the table, we’ve enlisted HBC Head Brewer Greg Filippi to weigh in with his thoughts.

"We are very excited about the latest installment in our Single Hop IPA series, made with delicious Chinook hops. Chinook has been a staple hop in west coast style IPAs since the development of the style. At about 13% alpha acid, Chinook imparts a solid bitterness, but also comes packing lots of beautiful aromas. Known for its distinctive grapefruit character, Chinook hops also impart notes of resinous pine and a slight “cattiness”, similar to but not as pronounced as you would find in the Simcoe variety. The finished beer is a well-rounded west coast style IPA bursting with all of the wonderful flavors that we generally use a blend of flowers to try to produce. The wonderful flavors and aromas develop and change as your palate adjusts to the copper-colored brew, and at about 7% ABV, it’s drinkable enough to have a few. Cheers." ~Head Brewer Greg Filippi

Look for this IPA at your favorite craft beer retailer, bar, or restaurant. Don’t see it there? Let us know and we’ll do our best to bring it to your neck of the woods.
