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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a foggy golden color with a off white head. Grapefruit and Hopps dominate the aroma. Taste is a slightly bitter IPA, pleasant surprise.

Pours a medium golden color with white head. Some citrus, grapefruit definitely, and a little pine and grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little resinous hop flavor.

Pours a light amber into the glass, with a wispy head that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is of pure spruce-pine trees. Flavors, piney bitter and resinous all the way through, have plenty of orange and grapefruit citrus with a light caramel malt backbone that finish with strong Chinook hopping. Hopheads may rejoice here, absolutely! The mouthfeel, juicy with lingering "wet hop" bitterness, provides a nice quaff that is hop-forward and assertive to the palate. With a tad more malt substance, this could really take the traditional "West Coast IPA" to the next level, because 90% of it is already in place. Can’t wait to see more from this brewer. A super great start for me, for sure!

The chinookie is good. Tasty dry hopped and great character this beer had. It’s my style. Pours a nice golden amber color and has nice lacing as you enjoy the glass.

Transfer from BA review on 4-7-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a very hazy orange amber color with a one finger white head. The head has good retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma was big of a citrus grapefruit hop mixed with some sweeter tropical and lighter fruit flavors. The tropical fruits were a mix of tangerine, papaya and mango with the lighter fruits being more of a peach and apricot aroma. A light pine and sugary aroma are mixed with these producing an overall fruity and hoppy smell. Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter fruit flavor of tangerine mixed with a bit of lightly roasted malt flavor. A grapefruit hop flavor is present right up front. It starts out of moderate strength and gets stronger as the flavors advance. Tropical fruit flavors begin coming to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste. These however are mostly overshadowed by the hop flavors due to the grapefruit getting stronger as well as an arrival of an earthy and pine hop taste more toward the end. In the end a very grapefruit hop and moderately fruity (but lighter in comp to the hop flavor) is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thinner side for a IPA of its 6.2% abv with a carbonation level that is rather average. Fairly decent overall for the big hoppy and fruit flavors of the brew all while keeping it nice and easy drinking. Overall – A fairly citrus hoppy but still pretty easy drinking IPA. Well worth a try.

Pours a hazy golden with an average head for style. Nice aromas of citrus and pine. Full malt flavor with citrus and slight bitterness. Refreshing, well made beer.

Bottle pour copper orange. Nose dank hop, some papaya. Tatse mild bitter up front, then some generic sweetness with not as much fruit character as the nose. Good mouth feel. Bitter finish.

355 mL bottle. Pours translucent copper-orange with a small, slightly off-white head. Appealing aroma of citrus, pineapple, a touch of resin, and a touch of spice. The flavour is not exactly balanced, but there is a nice underlying malty, caramelly backbone to prevent this from being one-dimensional hop juice. Chinook is a lovely hop, and it is well utilized here. Bitterness is nice through the mouth, but fades fairly quickly. Body could be bigger. But overall, a very appealing, drinkable IPA.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass a hazy a deep amber. Aroma was lighter than most American IPA’s mild grapefruit and malt. The taste is different than many with the grapefruit coming at the sip and getting pine late and trough the finish but it has a nice malt note that I think adds a nice smoothness and some caramel. Body is full and there is a small alcohol note in the finish but overall a nice drinker, well done
