This American IPA beer recipe kit has a relatively modest gravity and a hop character best described as immodest and scandalous. And all that heady hop aroma and flavor comes entirely from a single hop variety: the rising star Chinook.

Long used by U.S. brewers for bittering additions, Chinook hops only recently gained a passionate following among beer-lovers for their aroma and flavor. And this recipe kit combines the best of those qualities alongside premium ingredients to produce a delicious, handcrafted IPA.

Chinook IPA is a bit lower in gravity and lighter in the body than other IPAs, which enhances the perceived bitterness and reduces the aging requirements. It shows up in the glass with a reddish-gold color, and a thick, resinous Chinook aroma lingers after the glass is emptied.
