I did a for the "nookie." This beer has been "nookied" 4 times during the brewing process and then "dry nookied." It says so on the bottle. it also states that it has 103 IBU.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Bright blazing orange color with minimal head and lots of carbonated bubbles coming to the top. Strong scents of hops. Chinock hops were mostly used, but 3 other varieties were used also. Full body of flavors lots of grapefruit and strong pine. This beer is certainly over the top. Mouthfeel is slightly oily. Very drinkable. Alcohol is very well hidden.

I loved this beer!!! Could not tell the appearance inside the brown bottle but other reviews might help you there. Smell, nice pinny/citrus aroma. Taste was vary appeasing, very grapfruity, compareable to a DFH 90min. As for the drinkability, I could drink this all day long. Full Pint has done a excelent job in crafting this IPA.

I really enjoy this beer from start to finish I am currently on number two for the night. this beer has everything I like about an IPA it smells like grapefruit zest with a very shallow hint of pine. taste like grapefruit peel extremely bitter (but that's what I like) with very small hint of sweet the mouth feel of this beer is wonderful and coats the entire mouth the after taste lingers with grapefruit and a sappy pine. I love this style of beer. sorry I don't use proper terms but I say how it feels. again I enjoy this beer

This brew pours an opaque copper color with a tan colored one finger head, remnants of which stay on the top of the beer until the end. Good lacing and carbonation.

The smell is strong with grapefruit and pine hops. There is a little orange and floral hops smell as well. There is also a roasted malt and caramel smell. If you let the brew warm up for a few minuets you will detect a smoky smell.

The taste, happily follows the nose with grapefruit, pine, orange, melon and caramel all hitting the tongue in quick succession, one right after the other; very well balanced.

The mouth feel is thick and chewy then oily on the back end. Oily, piney hops sit on the tongue after swallowing.

Overall this is another winner from full pint in Pittsburg, PA. This is a very well balanced IPA and deserves to be near the top of any hophead's "go to" list. If you like a well balanced IPA, and who doesn't, give it a try.

My new favorite IPA.

Appearance is a bit dark for an IPA, with some cloudiness.

Smell gives me grapefruit, pine, and several other notes of citrus.

Taste is hoppy enough, but not so hoppy that my tongue goes numb. While many super-hoppy IPAs please my palate, I usually need to drink them with food. Chinookie is drinkable on its own, no food required.

Taste includes pine, some citrus, and a slight hop wallop.

Mouthfeel is good -- stiff, but not enough to leave me with cottonmouth.

Overall, I'm loving Chinookie.

another new one for me i decided to try this one out late night style and cracked it while enjoying some fine tunes.

great pour with a hazy, light amber color and a smooth and even creamy head of white that capped the top nearly perfectly. aroma is deep citrus, grapefruit with touches of bright lemon and a hint of an earthy grain that pops up mid palate. smooth, dry finish with a crisp and clean lingering hop flavor on tongue/

overall really a very solid beer with a great profile and a smooth and easy drinking feel. i could throw this down all night
