New beer release announcement from Hopworks Urban Brewery. Introducing Chuckle Cones, a new whole-cone IPA.
Hopworks Urban Brewery Releases Chuckle Cones Whole Cone IPA
PORTLAND, Ore. — April 14, 2022 —Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB), the first B Corp brewery in the Pacific Northwest, has set a new limited release loose in the wild: Chuckle Cones Whole Cone IPA.
This well-balanced and flavorful IPA has a rich golden hue and aromas of peach, pineapple and sweet orange. The beer features guava and apricot hop flavors with a balanced finish. The name is a nod to the whole Chinook and Idaho 7 hop cones added in the hop back during brewing, which puts the fruity terpenes front and center.
“This beer was fun to make, as a callback to earlier days of brewing before hop pellets,” said Ryan Pappe, head brewer at Hopworks. “Adding those whole cones in the hop back gives Chuckle Cones next-level fruity, citrusy flavors and aromas that just make you want to keep tasting!”
Chuckle Cones Whole Cone IPA clocks in at 66 IBU and 6.7% ABV. It’s brewed and fermented with Cascade, Centennial, El Dorado and Mosaic hops, with whole cone Chinook and Idaho 7 hops in the hop back.
Chuckle Cones is available as a limited release through May on tap and in 16 oz. 4-packs at grocers, bottle shops, and at Hopworks’ two locations on SE Powell Boulevard in Portland and SE Mill Plain Boulevard in Vancouver, Washington.
