COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We hit this full bodied IPA with “nookie” four times during the brewing process to give this ale its trademark Chinook hop character. We then “dry nookied” this flavorful ale to further enhance its grapefruit and pine aroma.

Fresh 12oz bottle from Total Wine in tampa. Copper-orange pour with a thinnish white head and loose lacing. Aroma is pleasant fresh citrus hop. Tastes are also fresh - grapefruit, pine, caramel, little bready. Crisp bitter finish. Pretty nice.

Appearance is a smaller white head with hazy amber. Aroma is a little sweeter. Taste is a bitter and earthy hop with a very dry aftertaste. Overall pretty decent IPA.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Pungent hop aroma with earthy pine notes and a bit of citrus. Pours cloudy amber-orange colored with a thin, white head and no lacing. Hoppy, earthy with pine and a touch of citrus. Extremely dry, hoppy finish. Good until the harsh finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsmerig (1199) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange with an aroma of musky earthy hops. Taste is intense citrusy hops not nearly enough offset by the malt bill. The citrus hops turn into oaky bitterness. A little too much hops ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Ty's house. Nose is pure hop. Lots of hop taste. A bit of grapefruit. Overall decent but balance is questionable. ---Rated via my mouth

dogfish120love (913) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Pours a dark orange almost brown, with a white lacing. The aroma is rather earthy with notes dirt, leaves and maybe a little grass. Citrus kicks in latter with notes of grapefruit and a hint of pine. Starts off sweet, but finishes rather bitter

iceman15658 (125) - Acme, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a foggy golden color with a off white head. Grapefruit and Hopps dominate the aroma. Taste is a slightly bitter IPA, pleasant surprise.

rondphoto (1782) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Hazy orange amber with a rocky head that stays, half-loops of lace. Almost glows, good looking. Taste is malty, but it doesn’t even last to the palate - strong pine and grapefruit hops take over, but, in spite of the hop assertiveness, it never turns completely bitter. Very solid IPA. Recommended.

malrubius (1639) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle from World Wines. Very fresh (BB Dec something, 2013). Hazy copper with lasting head and lace. Woody piney citrus hops. Mild peach fruit sweetness with medium assertive woody grapefruit pine woody hop lingering grapefruit resiny finish. Nice medium body with good carbo to accentuate the hops. I don’t understand the low ratings. Excellent.
