Heat oil 375 degrees F. You can use a deep fryer, or a heavy pan. If not using a deep fryer, use a deep, heavy pot, filled to at least 3″ deep.
Sprinkle chicken generously with salt, allow to air dry while preparing glaze.
In a medium saucepan, bring IPA and 1/4 cup of the hops to a boil. Turn heat down to medium-low, simmer until it has reduce to about half the original volume. (Just eyeball it!).
Once IPA has reduced, add honey, jalapeno, cloves, orange zest/juice, and a pinch of salt. Bring back up to a simmer, simmer for about 10 minutes.
Add remaining hops, simmer for 5 more minutes.
Pour glaze through wire strainer, discarding solids left behind. Return to pot and keep warm while preparing chicken wings.
Fry chicken wings in batches of about a dozen pieces each – allowing oil to come back up to temperature between each batch – until golden brown. (About 10-15 minutes per batch).
Transfer fried wings to a large bowl, toss with glaze, and serve hot!
