Double IPA - Drinking

This would have to be my favourite beer so far.  I was happy with the amount of body (although it can always do with more), the abundance of hop flavour and the huge grassiness from all the dry hopping.

I passed it onto a local craft bar owner who rated it as the best gluten free beer they've tried yet.

I've also entered the beer in the Queensland Amateur brewing competition to get some critical feedback.  I'll be sure to post the results when I hear back.

As per the photo, it definitely looked the part.

Was it a hop too far?  No.  It turned out just right :)

Chinook IPA - Drinking

The Chinook IPA turned out very drinkable.  It had a nice amber colour (as per the picture), grassy flavour from the dry hopping and strong grapefruit flavours from all the Chinook hops.

Definitely need to brew it again.
