Chuckanut IPA

Brewer: Chuckanut Brewery and Kitchen
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA)
Alcohol Content: 6%
Seasonal: No

A true "British" India Pale Ale should be light amber in color, and have a earthy, fruity hop aroma; with a wild whip crack hop bitterness, held together by a sturdy malt flavor with a strength of at least 6 percent. Chuckanut Brewery’s British IPA goes down with incredible ease. In 1790’s, the British were established in India and needed beer, which was considered a staple in every household. Brewing in India was impossible; it was too hot (this was before refrigeration) and beer that was shipped overseas spoiled on it’s journey. George Hodgson, a brewer who was known for brewing the style of Pale Ale created a stronger version of his pale beer by increasing the alcohol content, fermenting the beer fully, and adding hops to hogshead (the barrel they shipped beer in) all this made the beer sturdier for the voyage. Hodgson’s India Pale Ale arrived in Calcutta in fine shape-clear, strong, and bitter, with a big resinous hop aroma. The India Pale Ale has become famous throughout Europe as well as the United States. Original Gravity 14 Plato ABV 6.0% IBU’s 50
