Thanks to Phil for picking this one up for me. 22oz. bomber into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. Shared with schen9303. Pours a slowly cascading 1.5 finger frothy light cream colored head with good retention. Beer is a clear dark amber. Lacing is stringy, thick, layered with good cling. Excellent looking beer.

Nose is pine, citrus, tea leaves, and a sap hop bitterness. Moderately aromatic. Nice and very clean.

Opens tea leaves, citrus, pine, grass hop bitterness. Some papaya sweetness in the middle and cane sugar malt body towards the end. Finish is citrus and resin hop bitterness with a tea leaf hop bite in the aftertaste. Deliciously drinkable.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Lively and quenching in the mouth and smooth going down with a mellow finish and lingering aftertaste. Very solid for the style.

Very well done up and down, Chinooker'd is a great representation of the awesome IPAs floating around Vermont. Very balanced in the nose and taste and incredibly drinkable, this is an expertly crafted beer in its style.

Drank on-tap at Lord Hobo, Cambridge, MA
Served in a cervoise

The beer poured a slightly hazed, crimson-amber color and was topped by a creamy, light beige, two-finger head. Thick, drippy streaks of lacing cascaded down the glass.

The nose was dynamic yet unusual. It started spicy with strong notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Later, it turned quite soapy. Perhaps a touch floral. As the beer warmed it again changed to something more straightforward (yet subtle) for the style. Hints of orange peel and pine sap came through.

The flavor profile was much punchier than the nose. Hops dominated but they were well tempered on the front end by a stiff, caramel malt backbone. The malts were somewhat bready as well. A wash of hops soon overshadowed the malts. Tangerine and orange zest came through strong. Quite fruity and juicy. The finish was piney and resiny. Super hoppy with no discernible alcohol presence.

The mouthfeel was perhaps the most impressive aspect of this beer. It was fuller bodied for the style and amazingly slick, creamy and frothy. Super plush on the palate. Fantastic.

Chinooker'd IPA almost seems to be more of a hoppy imperial red ale than a typical American IPA, and there is nothing wrong with that. Fans of intensely hoppy yet balanced IPAs will definitely appreciate this.

Bomber to long trail pint glass

A:golden orange honey color in the darker side cloudy but not completely opaque with a thin white head pretty close to perfect for an ipa

S:not a pungent smell but the hops are there and I can smell resin almost

T: follows the nose tons of resin with intense hop flavor with a palate wrecking bitterness though this fades and there is a clean finish

M: smooth oily and thin but resiny not watery fairly drinkable and the alcohol is hidden well definitely has a crisp clean hop bite to it especially in the finish, really good stuff

O: high quality in your face ipa that I quite enjoy if you like piney resiny bitter hops then this is for you. One of Lawson's better offerings

From notes: Chinooker'd IPA pours a clear amber with a small, frothy white head on top. The foam disappears quickly leaving behind spots of lace on the glass. No bubbles seen in the beer.

The aroma is very grassy with hints of pine and orange citrus.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is soft and oily on the palate with light carbonation. The flavor begins sweet with caramel malt and some toast. Soon hop flavors of grass, pine and orange citrus move in. It finishes dry with lingering grass and pine flavors.

This is a very tasty beer with lots of hops and enough malt sweetness to balance out the bitterness.
