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.

Pours a murky caramel color with a thick lt tan head...good lacing and retention. Aroma is musty and bready with a lt off aroma of vomit...slightly vegetal. Flavor is bitter and tea-like with some bready malty notes. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly lifeless with a very bitter earthy/dry finish. Just an awful beer...id rather drink a miller lite...it would more predictable and less offensive.

boto (1827) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 30, 2012
12oz. bottle: This one pours a cloudy, somewhat orangish color. there was about a 1/2 finger of off white head. It didn’t linger long or leave much lacing. Nice blast of pine hops to the nose. A touch of grapefruit also with maybe some caramel malts lurking in there. Decent enough taste. Fairly bitter, but not overly so. Piney taste, with a decent caramel malt body behind it. Somewhat dry finish. A good IPA.

Poured into a pint glass. 4.0 A: Deeply hazed orange brownish color. One and a half fingers of off-white, creamy/frothy head. Retention is a touch above average and plenty of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Pine and grapefruit hoppiness is the strongest aroma. A touch of earthy and herbalness as well. Bready malts and yeast with a slight caramel undertone. Clean overall, especially given the yeastiness. 3.5 T: Mild bitterness. Lots of pine hop flavor. Grapefruit, earth, and herbs to follow. Orange citrus after that. Bready yeastiness. Caramel to round things off. 3.0 M: Lighter medium body. Carbonation is moderate in amount and slightly biting. Lacking creaminess for the most part. 3.5 D: Decent beer, but as far as IPAs go, this isn’t too special. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-22-2012 04:43:39

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Very aromatic IPA. Grapefruit and citrus aromas. Amber orange pour. Full pint makes great beers. None I haven’t liked. Make sure you get it fresh.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark copper body with a one finger fizzy white head that left some light lacing. The nose is nicely hoppy and fresh smelling with a hefty amount of Chinook. Just a bit of maltiness peeking out from under the hops. The flavor is a bit catty and too green tasting from all the Chinook though. I think that this is a hop that can use a little enhancement from another variety or two, less well suited than many varieties for single hopping. Some light caramel maltiness, especially on the finish after the slight piney hop flavor fades. Medium bodied without being sticky or cloying. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent overall, but I’m not loving it. More of a personal preference thing though vs. any kind of flaws.

JFGrind (1837) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Copper bodied citrus aroma IPA. Chinook hops are evident not overbearing. Stronger in alcohol and weaker in hop profile than I expected.

r464 (1890) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2012 Hoppy and bitter with a hint of floralness. A tad citrusy, zesty, with an earthy pine flavor. Not a bad IPA.

MarkSachon (555) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2012
From the 120z bottle purchased at The BeerHive in Pittsburgh. Strong pungent nose on the pour and a average size head with expected coloration. Medium body with no unique flavors tasted from the exotic hops specified on the label. Fairly average for an IPA that could have and should have been better.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Pours hazy dark orange and has a frothy lasting head. Nose is intense herbal and citrus with some pine resins and lost a tart fruity aroma. Flavor is dry sweet bready and toasted malts with an intense amount of citrus and earthy herbal pine hop character. Dry finish. slightly astringent on the back en but not bad overall of you really like chinook. Centennial comes out too.

nearbeer (3617) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2012
12 oz from McGraths, Harrisburg. Nose is orange toffee, chocolate and earthy tea leaf. Flavor is the same. These are not bad flavors, but they are tilted to the sweet candy side, and need some more bittering. Light medium body is smoothly carbonated and has a dry finish that almost rescues the big malt.
