Description

Riddle of Steel – The secret of the West Coast IPA has always carried with it Chinook. You must learn its riddle. You must learn its discipline.

 

Pomona Island is an award-winning brewery based in Salford. Formed in 2017 by Nick and Ryan, who started the Gas Lamp bar in Manchester, Gaz from Marble Brewery and James from Tempest Brewery. If you’ve not tried their beers yet we highly recommend you check them out in our carefully crafted range of the best independent breweries which we cold store to ensure you get a quality product to drink.

This recipe is for their award winning West Coast IPA which won the Barth Haas Underdog competition in 2022. The challenge open to all breweries in Europe was to brew a beer which showed off the best use of the hop Chinook.

We were lucky enough to be part of the judging panel for this competition so reached out to James at Pomona Island to ask if we would mind sharing his recipe with the home brew community.
