Ultra fresh bomber from the Mad River Valley, poured into a Lawson's snifter with a creamy one finger head atop a dense honey color ale that appears a glowing orange when held up to the light. Crazy lacing.

Aroma is hop forward, leaning towards the resiny pine territory complimented by some grapefruit rind and pith. There is an apparent malt bill to balance out the high alpha hops, and there are hints in the nose.

Taste is resinous, piney hops:good and bitter, with that grapefruit rind acidic tartness going strong. Those expecting the floral nose and fruity flavors of Sean's Double Sunshine are in for a change of pace with Chinooker'd, as this is a bitter,acidic IPA that makes no apologies for what it is. The high alpha hops utilized are for the hardcore hopheads that beg for that cruel acidic
punch in the face. Slight breadiness detectable,but not unexpected nor unpleasant.

Mouthfeel is slightly oily, chewy hops, balanced carbonation,and on the medium to heavy side. Slight alcohol warming in the throat but nothing aggressive.

Overall Chinooker'd delivers the goods for serious hop lovers in a straightforward manner:this is a bold acidic IPA that is a fastball down the middle of the plate and your palate: gonna be a home run or a swing and a miss depending on your tastes!

Additional notes 7/26/13:
8 weeks of aging has mellowed the dynamic bitterness of Chinooker'd, and resulted in a more balanced flavor for my taste.
