Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a very hazy orange amber color with a one finger white head. The head has good retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma was big of a citrus grapefruit hop mixed with some sweeter tropical and lighter fruit flavors. The tropical fruits were a mix of tangerine, papaya and mango with the lighter fruits being more of a peach and apricot aroma. A light pine and sugary aroma are mixed with these producing an overall fruity and hoppy smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter fruit flavor of tangerine mixed with a bit of lightly roasted malt flavor. A grapefruit hop flavor is present right up front. It starts out of moderate strength and gets stronger as the flavors advance. Tropical fruit flavors begin coming to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste. These however are mostly overshadowed by the hop flavors due to the grapefruit getting stronger as well as an arrival of an earthy and pine hop taste more toward the end. In the end a very grapefruit hop and moderately fruity (but lighter the hop flavor) is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thinner side for a IPA of its 6.2% abv with a carbonation level that is rather average. Fairly decent overall for the big hoppy and fruit flavors of the brew all while keeping it nice and easy drinking.

Overall – A fairly citrus hoppy but still pretty easy drinking IPA. Well worth a try.

Best By Aug. 2014

Cute label art of two smiling anthropomorphic hops

a: Clear copper, finger thick offwhite head receded to thin even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Pine

t: Caramel malt followed by plenty of piney hop bite. Bitterness lingers on the tongue.

m: Medium with good body and plenty of carbonation tingle.

o: Bitter is the watchword, caramel malt is overwhelmed by it, but it does deliver satisfying Chinookie..

Nice IPA overall, nothing jumps out as memorable. Has a nice malt bill to balance out the surplus of hops. Really easy to drink. Worth a try, yet won't likely seek it out again with a flooded market of stuff I haven't tried~

Hop-laden haze in a toast amber-colored beer. The bone-white head forms a solid crown with a matte finish. Retains exceptionally.

Hunky Chinook hops with big pithy grapefruit and spiny pine notes. Hints of hemp oil, oyster cracker, and black tea bag. Faint whiffs of mint. Very pronounced hop aroma with a lurking toasty grain malt base.

Severely bitter, as Chinook hops tend to be. Bruising with pine, sandalwood, grapefruit whites, peppermint, and astringent herbals. Tea-like maltiness and minerally water are getting lost behind this hop-slaught. The finish is medium-to-long and a little peppery. They write full-bodied on the label, and I get that they mean that this IPA is brimming with residual hop oils clamming up the body. This must be what it feels like when you drink dish soap water. Raucous IPA.
