12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep orange bronze with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a fresh resiny grapefruity hoppy nose with some light caramel malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and lightly toasted malty sweetness with a clean orange citrus hop bitterness before a drier crisp bittersweet finish. Very drinkable and true to style.

Thanks Marvid! Pours orange with a small vanishing head. Weak hoppy aromas of lemon, grass and some zesty grapefruit. Bitter taste of grass, grapefruit and berries. Lacks sweetness and have an appreciative dryness! Long bitter finish.

Orange with a white head. Aroma is full of citrus, sweet tropics, pine, and light sweet malts. Medium bodied. Fresh hop flavor of light grapefruit, citrus, and a bit of pine hops. Lightly sweet yet dry finish. Quite a nice, refreshing, tasty, easy going IPA.

Cloudy orange golden pour very thin off white soapy head .... aroma of sweet caramel malts and just a tad of citrusy hops ..... taste is thin and of sweet malts little watery and then it fades to a semi bitter citrusy piney spicy hop thats more towards the end that lingers a little on the tongue .... dry finish with some of the malt coming in to mix with the lingering dry hop .... meh

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours out a moderate shade of copper with a small off white bubbly head. Aroma is of some moderate grapefruit hops and light malty notes. Taste is some caramel, slight pine and citrus, finish is some lingering bitterness with some sticky sweet malts in there. Must have missed that "nookie" part of this somewhere, and that big IBU listed on the label didnt’ really show through.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle shared by Dean. Poured an ugly muddy brownish/orangebody underneath a smaller foamy mostly white head. Aroma isn’t that good with notes of dirty earthy old citrus fruit, bad vanilla candy, old flat cream soda, bad bread. Thinner bodied with average carbonation and a watery mouthfeel. Flavor of old citrus rind, lime, bread and crusts. Meh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very delicious IPA. The Chinookie poured a cloudy dark golden color with a nice sized off-white head. The head left some excellent lacing around the glass. I got a ton of grapefruit and pine in the aroma. The flavors were very dry, spicy and prickly with more notes of grapefruit and pine, along with some oranges, light yeast and sweet malts. The finish was incredibly dry and hoppy with lots of citrus.
