3.98/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured out a bright golden color with quite a bit of carbonation. Left some nice lacing down the glass afterwards.

Smell was quite complex with citric fruit, yeast, with a slight twang of funkiness. It's quite unique. Grapefruit can be detected in the background.

Taste was similar to the nose. Bready, yeasty, hoppy profile starts with some citrus fruit blended in. A faint malt backbone finishes it off. It almost seems like it'll be too much, but it isn't.

Mouthfeel was medium with good carbonation. Finish was crisp and refreshing.

A++ would buy again.

A different beer. Don't expect a strongly hopped IPA or you will be disappointed. Don't take me wrong, the hop is definitely there but saves room for the yeast. One can definitely taste a Duvel type yeast. (dry finish and pear like flavor) I really like the Chinook, it gives a really dry type of flavor (similar to the the APA by schlafly, almost like sucking mint leaves: almost hairy in some ways). The dryness of the hop flavor and of the body (the beer is well attenuated) really complements the Duvel yeast well. A different beer but that worked well for me.
