Chinook IPA provides the perfect flavor profile for Hornindal to transform the grapefruit, piney notes of the Chinook hops into an intensely tropical finished brew. Don’t worry about the temperature range on this one as Hornindal provides those mango, pineapple notes from 70°F up to 95°F.
The Beer Kit
This American IPA beer kit has a relatively modest gravity and an immodest hop character derived entirely from a single hop variety. Chinook hops have long been used by US brewers for bittering additions, but their intense aroma and flavor have caught on only recently. This kit is a bit lower in gravity and lighter in body than our other IPA recipe kits, 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.
The Yeast Pairing
Hornindal produces an intense tropical flavor and aroma with notes of fresh pineapple, mango, and tangerine. Compliments fruit-forward hops as well as adds another dimension to beer made with traditional "C" hops.
Another unique kveik originating from the farmhouses of Norway. We preserved the original blend of strains to bring the best possible complexity. Hornindal produces an intense tropical flavor and aroma with notes of fresh pineapple, mango, and tangerine. Compliments fruit-forward hops as well as adds another dimension to beer made with traditional "C" hops. Warmer fermentation temperatures will increase the aromatic profile and fermentation speed. Non-phenolic. Like HotHead™ and Voss Kveik, it ferments well without off flavors at 90+° F.
