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.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2010
Tap at Smokin’ Joes. Amber pour with a thick, sticky tan head. The nose is lightly sweet and quite piny as well. Subdued earthiness with a kiss of light fruit as well. Soflty hoppy with a kiss of sweetness on the back. Meh... too much crystal malt makes it overly chewy.

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.
