Chinook IPA Extract Beer Recipe Kit
This American IPA beer recipe kit has a relatively modest gravity and a hop character best described as immodest, bordering on scandalous. And all that heady hop aroma and flavor comes entirely from a single hop variety: the rising star we call Chinook.
Long used by US 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, hand-crafted IPA.
Chinook IPA is a bit lower in gravity and lighter in 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 that lingers after the glass is emptied.

This was my first homemade beer kit, and it was easy, and tasted great. I ordered another one to do some small tweaks to it. The one thing I noticed is that I believe the ABV is a lot HIGHER than what they say. Brewing it again with the extract and grains provided, I believe I'm going to get closer to 9% ABV.
Came out a little yeasty but the bitterness was good
2nd time buying still in fermantation 1st one was fantastic
Received a starter kit as a Christmas present last year. It came with a Chinook extract kit. That first cool came out excellent and remains my favorite IPA. I have tried other recipes but keep coming back to this one. The flavor is crisp and has a slight hop taste at first but it isn’t over powering like many IPA’s can be. Those I have shared it with ask me for more. Will be giving bottles of this as Christmas presents to my family and friends that have been nice this year!
It was perfect!
