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.

A-Lightly hazed orange kissed copper with a medium white head that reduced to a thin cap and left thick lace.

S-Called Chinookie for a reason....lots of citrus Chinook hop aroma to go around here. Light touches of fresh cut hay and grapefruit rind in the background. Sweet caramel malt base adds nice support to the hop bill.

T-Surprised with the forward caramel malt sweetness. After this initial wave passes by a pleasant zip of fresh squeezed citrus and rind bitterness emerges.

M-Medium bodied with a full flavour profile and nice lingering hop bitterness.

D-Good certainly but not my style of IPA to fall in love with. A touch too malt forward for me. I do appreciate the balance and can see why this is an enjoyable brew, but not an earth shaking one.

Serving type: on-tap
