Get to da Choppa! - Pale Ale Recipe

Get to da Choppa!

Single Hop Pale Ale - 5.5 Gallons - All Grain - ABV 5.5% - IBU 41 - SRM 6 

Ah yes, Predator – easily one of Schwarzenegger’s best movies. What better way to commemorate one of his most famous lines than by making a single hopped Pale Ale using only Chinook* hops.

Get to da Choppa! Is a hop forward pale ale. It has big pine and floral aromas balanced by the malt backbone of the beer. The kind of beer that could be had anytime of the year.  So, grab a seat on the couch a re-watch Predator for the 100th time, but this time make sure you’ve got a cold glass of Choppa in hand.

*Chinook is a tandem rotor heavy lift helicopter widely used by militaries accross the world (including Canada) It is also the name of a delicious hop.
