Hop Nation is the work of two former winemakers (they saw the light and do that as well now). Having consulted to a craft beer shop for a few months I discovered these beers are some of the best in Australia. Well crafted (get it!) and therefore easy to drink beers that are leading examples of their style. As the name would suggest, Hop Nation exists to show off the hoppier styles of beer. Check out Hop Nation’s other beers and wines.
The Chop is an American style IPA (as opposed to an English style) and therefore exists to show off delicious hops. Look for citrus, spice, mixed peel. It has a full body and would pair with a curry very well.
India Pale Ale or IPA started in England. They were essentially a Pale Ale with more. More hops, more bitterness, more malt and more alcohol. Like the English style Pale Ale, they were dry, malty, and cleansing. Now, IPA is a launching pad into pandora’s box wrapped in an enigma and somethings also wrapped in pancetta. American style IPA often focus on hops flavours and sometimes alcohol. But really, the only limit to IPA is the brewer’s imagination.
