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.

Bought, what I think is a fresh bottle. Golden orange pour with a 1/2 finger head. Strong "hoppy"aroma. Taste matches aroma. It is very bitter and dry, but enjoyable. Pleasantly surprised and would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (12735) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2013
This brew pours a cloudy golden color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and hops. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, roast malt and a touch of caramel. Medium bodied with flavors of hops, grapefruit and a bit of malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy tan head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus and spruce hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bitter flavor with a moderate bitter finish of medium duration. Good brew.

If you like chinook, you'll love it. If not, not so much. Try it, you might dig it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light gold color with zero head and no lacing. Minimal grapefruit aroma. Flavor is pretty rancid. Tastes like burnt windex. Im sorry this didnt work out- new beer at the bottleshop and I wanted to like it. Good thing I only got this instead of all 4-6 of their offerings...

TheHOFF43 (2049) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown amber with a little head. Aroma is citrusy hops. Flavor matches aroma, very happy with this beer.

Lowe1983 (1575) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Pours a darker amber color with an off-white head. Pine hops dominate with some citrus and caramel malts. Flavor is full of pine as well. Slightly watery on the finish but still some bitterness.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2013
12oz bottle, shared by Jay. Best by August 2013. Its likely ultra fresh right now, but that seems like an awfully long window for an IPA.. Mostly clear amber color. Thin white head leaves good spray of lace. Medium body. Smooth texture. Just a light stickiness in the finish. Kind of a rye spicy hop flavor ( but no rye!). Sweet, light bitterness in the finish. Grapefruit citrus, some resin. Tasty, flavorful lighter ABV IPA. Spicy citrus flavor is nice. Very interesting tasty assertive hop profile, as it is.

MattShizzle (608) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle - from sampler pack. Copper-golden color, a bit cloudy. Aroma is strongly of hops. Taste is REALLY hoppy - one of the hoppiest beers I ever had in my life.

Pint glass from tap. Deep amber color with thin white head and minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus and slight fruit. Definitely taste the unique Chinook Hop flavor. Not my favorite IPA but I will definitely drink it again
