India Pale Ales (IPAs) of old were heavily hopped to survive their journey to the colonies. This is Rob's interpretation - believing the hops may have mellowed by arrival.

This beer was brewed for a hop competition which showcases Chinook.... being one of Gazza's favourite hops, how could he refuse? Brewed with plenty of old school US C hops, this is a bitter, malty, herbal and resinous brew with the distinct "pine tree" character of Chinook coming through. The malty body is sweet and slightly grainy, as a WCIPA should be, but this is all about the hops and, in particular, the underrated Chinook.
