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.

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.

Hazy orange amber with a rocky head that stays, half-loops of lace. Almost glows, good looking. Taste is malty, but it doesnt even last to the palate - strong pine and grapefruit hops take over, but, in spite of the hop assertiveness, it never turns completely bitter. Very solid IPA. Recommended.

malrubius (2694) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle from World Wines. Very fresh (BB Dec something, 2013). Hazy copper with lasting head and lace. Woody piney citrus hops. Mild peach fruit sweetness with medium assertive woody grapefruit pine woody hop lingering grapefruit resiny finish. Nice medium body with good carbo to accentuate the hops. I dont understand the low ratings. Excellent.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2013
12oz bottle at a stop in Pitt. Poured clear medium orange with a short cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and grapefruit.. definitely on the sweeter end of the spectrum.. nice prickly pine at the end. The flavor had sweet caramel and pine at the core with nice lingering bitterness through the finish..

DocJitsu (1826) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy, orange-golden color with a bumpy antique white head. It has a perfumy, piny, and orangy/lemony bouquet. A bit of a burning sensation underlies the otherwise wet, filling mouthfeel. A bit of a sweet, malty backbone that quickly gets overwhelmed by some dull, bitter grapefruit. The kind with a pale yellow peel and white-pink flesh. When it finishes, its reminiscent of the Greyhounds I used to drink--grapefruit juice and vodka cocktails.

pours a nice hazy gold. aroma of (surprise) chinook hops. standard pine resin characteristics with sweet grapefruit. flavor is even heavier on the pine with a nice kind of apricot jam-on-toast finish. very nice beer.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2016 Rerate 5/2/16. Bottle. Aroma of citrus, bitter hops, flowery hops, caramel malt. Flavor of caramel with bitter hops, bitter orange rind, citrus. Heavy palate for an IPA. Solid IPA, better than Id remembered. 7/4/6/4/13 (3.4/5) 7/6/13. On tap. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel malt, and a touch of crystal malt. Flavor of crystal malt, bitter earthy hops, caramel malt, perfumey hops. Hmm, a bit flawed but its drinkable. 6/4/6/3/12 (3.1/5)
