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 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.

hombrepalo (1956) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2013
12oz bottle at a stop in Pitt. Poured clear medium orange with a short cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and grapefruit.. definitely on the sweeter end of the spectrum.. nice prickly pine at the end. The flavor had sweet caramel and pine at the core with nice lingering bitterness through the finish..

DocJitsu (1314) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy, orange-golden color with a bumpy antique white head. It has a perfumy, piny, and orangy/lemony bouquet. A bit of a burning sensation underlies the otherwise wet, filling mouthfeel. A bit of a sweet, malty backbone that quickly gets overwhelmed by some dull, bitter grapefruit. The kind with a pale yellow peel and white-pink flesh. When it finishes, it’s reminiscent of the Greyhounds I used to drink--grapefruit juice and vodka cocktails.

pours a nice hazy gold. aroma of (surprise) chinook hops. standard pine resin characteristics with sweet grapefruit. flavor is even heavier on the pine with a nice kind of apricot jam-on-toast finish. very nice beer.

queenholly (3580) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle. Sweet apricot, citrusy hops and rich caramel malt aroma. Hazy orange with a small white head, heavy flocculation. Sweet fruity malt, astringent piney herbal hops flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation.

LilBeerDoctor (3543) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2013
On tap. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel malt, and a touch of crystal malt. Flavor of crystal malt, bitter earthy hops, caramel malt, perfumey hops. Hmm, a bit flawed but it’s drinkable. 6/4/6/3/12 (3.1/5)

msante79 (2216) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2013
On tap at Smokin Joes. Pours clear burnt orange with a white head. Aromas of caramel and some pale malts with some light citrus and a little pine. Flavors of pine, grapefruit, little orange, and some malty sweetness. This one is fresh and packs nice bitter punch. Surprised by the low ratings as this is a nice solid IPA. Can’t wait to brew with these hops.

radagast83 (5953) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Split a 12oz bottle with friends. Poured an amber color with a small white head. Aroma was earthy hops, lightly roasted malts, some light fruit characters. Flavor had caramel notes, earthy malts, some bitterness. May not have been the freshest, because it was lacking in the grapefruit and pine notes.
