Chinooker'd IPA has an orange body and a rocky tan head that leaves behind a few tendrils of lacing after showing off solid retention.
The aroma is aggressively hoppy, with citrus, pine and a lot of resin.
It is definitely safe to refer to Chinooker'd as a hop bomb. Every sip of this stuff is an absolute attack of hops on your taste buds. Loads of citrus, especially grapefruit mixed with a ton of pine. I think that pine might be single strongest flavor in this one. Layers of resin and leafy hop flavor come next, followed by a ton of bitterness. The malt barely makes an appearance, balancing things out with just a hint of sweetness toward the end.
The mouthfeel is oily and biting, with a full body.
Chinooker'd is a great IPA that you will want to have more than one of, which won't be a problem if you visit the Mad River Valley. Definitely try this one when you find it pouring somewhere.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into an oversized tulip.
Pours a nice medium amber with lots of big frothy head with good retention.
Smells ridiculous. So hoppy. Maybe the most hoppy smelling beer I've smelled including Heady.
Taste is delicious. A nice balance of mild hop bitterness and floral and juicy notes.
A mild malt background that serves to support this hop forward beer.
Mouthfeel is balanced, not overly dry, not sweet.
Overall, maybe my second favorite Lawson's after Double Sunshine.
