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.

Bottle pour. Pours a hazed copper with a big white head of frothy foam. The aroma has pine and herbal notes. Taste is mildly sweet at first, but quickly becomes resinous and bitter. Finishes dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

jgb9348 (5607) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Slightly hazy copper coloured body with an orange glow and absolutely no head at all. Aroma of very strong biscuity malt with a piney, resinous and grapefruity hop hick and some sweet notes of honey and apricots. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and piney kick at first with not much malt behind it, but the aftertaste shows even more of a hop kick and some lighter sweetness at the finish. Aftertaste is blindly showing the hops but fading to a grassy, herbal kick with a nice smooth bitterness - this is more of a hop-forward IPA with missing malt, but this is good for folks who like session IPAs that weren’t intentional. Overall, a hop-centred IPA with less malt than you’d expect, but for me, that’s a good thing, just know that going into it that it’s off in balance and enjoy the hop kicks! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tampa, Florida on 03-January-2014 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 17-May-2014.

Pours a hazy copper golden with minimal head. Nice fruity aroma, maybe a bit of a grapefruit scent. Light body, nice mouthfeel. Nice hop flavor, pick up some grapefruit and slight pine on the back of the tongue. Finishes very dry but nice ipa nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

burg326 (5266) - Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Poured a light golden orange color with aromas of floral hops, pine and a touch of pineapple. Flavors are light soapy floral notes up front with some pineapple mixed in and had a pine malt backbone. Decent beer overall.

iclimbandski (2) - Alabama, USA - FEB 2, 2014 does not count
Very strong bittering and aroma hops. Strong enough back end to support the hoppiness, but I would like a little more malt personally. Great beer overall from my favorite Pennsylvania brewery.
