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.

Bottle. Pours a orange-amber color with lots of floating sediment. I thought I was careful with the pour. Pungent herbal, floral and spicy aroma with some fruits too. Taste is weird though. Very herbal, very dry, and stale hops. Too much caramel malt too. A little pine in the finish. After a solid aroma, the taste is very disappointing.

egajdzis (5365) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
[Cask @ Spinnerstown] Amber color with no head. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, grass, and grapefruit. Taste of bitter chinooks, light sweetness, some pine, and bitter grapefruit in the finish. This cask seemed lifeless and overly bitter.

Nephilium (1372) - Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Nice big hop aroma, pours a hazy reddish-amber with a thin off-white head. Clean hop flavor, with a touch of malt. Long lingering bitter finish. This is a nice solid IPA.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Wexford, PA. Pours a hazy bronze color with floating particles and a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus, resin, pine, candied citrus hops and caramel malts. The taste is intense pine, resin and citrus hops with mildly toasted caramel malts. Medium bodied.

Aroma is a very light pine scent. Flavor is very much grapefruit and pine with a bit of spice. Really like this beer, a full chinook hopped beer seems kind of crazy but I think this turned out solid. Glad I got this in a trade, I would get this again. Very balanced Ipa!!

Intriguing but muted aroma with a dirty yellow pour, complex taste with a lingering mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Michbeerlover (140) - - APR 20, 2013
Bought, what I think is a fresh bottle. Golden orange pour with a 1/2 finger head. Strong "hoppy"aroma. Taste matches aroma. It is very bitter and dry, but enjoyable. Pleasantly surprised and would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (8259) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2013
This brew pours a cloudy golden color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and hops. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, roast malt and a touch of caramel. Medium bodied with flavors of hops, grapefruit and a bit of malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Tmoney99 (10820) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy tan head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus and spruce hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bitter flavor with a moderate bitter finish of medium duration. Good brew.

If you like chinook, you'll love it. If not, not so much. Try it, you might dig it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
