Nice hoppy beer. A little bit of a sweet start but it calls quickly. I would get it again.

I really like this one. Citrus hops, oranges, sweet caramel, clean grains and hints of pine. Nice medium body. Not as dry as most IPAs.

On tap at Waterworks Burgatory. Great fresh hop aroma, piney, herbal, and spicy. Medium golden amber clear with thin white head. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Sweet with oranges and tons of hop flavor, sticky and bitter. Bitter finish and after. Nice fresh-hop IPA.

growler from Whole Foods - Pours copper orange color with a wisp of lacy head. Aroma is piney and earthy and smells delicious. Good mouthfeel and carbonation. Initial flavor is pleasant fresh herbal hoppiness with some pine sap flavors. However when the bitterness hits it stays with you - a long time. While it’s not overly bitter I can still feel the puckeriness and taste the bittering hops almost 2 minutes after my first sip. Maybe it’ll mellow a bit when exposed but then again Chinook may not be a good hop choice for a "feature hop" or single hop beer. [dammit - I have got to start checking my reviews BEFORE buying beer. Apparently I rated the non-wet-hop version 5 months ago and gave it a 1.8. So the wet-hop is better, but my reviews are pretty similar]
