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.
O.G. 15.1

Bottle. Pours a hazy brown amber with a little head. Aroma is citrusy hops. Flavor matches aroma, very happy with this beer.

On tap Union Jacks (North Hills) - Chinook is certainly not a hop that I’d pick for a single hop IPA as it’s one that can easily be over used in a beer. I’m not sure where in their description they get "grapefruit" as an aroma for Chinook either. Missing was much in the way of piney aromas, and instead it seems all of the hops went into just bittering - long in the kettle. The beer was so bitter and astringent it was almost medicinal - like swallowing a bitter pill and you fumbled on the water. It was a long lasting, biting sharp bitterness too - I could still taste it after several minutes from my couple of sips.

Pours a darker amber color with an off-white head. Pine hops dominate with some citrus and caramel malts. Flavor is full of pine as well. Slightly watery on the finish but still some bitterness.

12oz bottle, shared by Jay. Best by August 2013. It’s likely ultra fresh right now, but that seems like an awfully long window for an IPA.. Mostly clear amber color. Thin white head leaves good spray of lace. Medium body. Smooth texture. Just a light stickiness in the finish. Kind of a rye spicy hop flavor ( but no rye!). Sweet, light bitterness in the finish. Grapefruit citrus, some resin. Tasty, flavorful lighter ABV IPA. Spicy citrus flavor is nice. Very interesting tasty assertive hop profile, as it is.

Bottle - from sampler pack. Copper-golden color, a bit cloudy. Aroma is strongly of hops. Taste is REALLY hoppy - one of the hoppiest beers I ever had in my life.

Pint glass from tap. Deep amber color with thin white head and minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus and slight fruit. Definitely taste the unique Chinook Hop flavor. Not my favorite IPA but I will definitely drink it again

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Hazy medium amber-orange, thin white head, spotty lacing. Light citric hops, pale malts, some resin in the back end. Flavor shows increased grapefruit. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, moderate bitterness.

Very hoppy flavor, slight bitter aftertaste, strong pine aroma and taste, great beer if you love hops, a bit too hoppy for me, could use a little more caramel or malt to balance and smooth it out

Bottle. Pours dark hazy golden color thin tan lacing. Aroma is heavy pine and citrus. Mild sweet taste. Medium body, average carbonation, dry, medium bitter finish. Not the best but a pretty solid IPA, underrated.

This really wasn’t bad at all. Orange amber, off clear, with some yeast clumps at the end of the bottle. Pine and grass on the aroma with more pine and citrus in the flavor without too much harshness. Almost dry and a little thin for an IPA, but would could be outstanding as an over the top pale ale (without the yeasty floaters).
