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.

A - copper amber hazy appearance. Nothing noteworthy, not offsetting, just not inviting. No head, and no lacing.

S - earthy, some pine, fairly pungent, yet one dimensional

T - bitterness comes first and foremost, and lingers. Missing any layers. Malt tries to balance, but this is again, a one dimesional bitter beer.

M - I take this as light to monderate. Thin best describes it. Lingering bitterness

O - overall, I am disappointed, chinook hops definitely present, maybe over done. I like bitter finish to my ipa's, but this was just bitter throughout. I did not get any fruit, if its there, it's the pith, not the peel. This one missed for me, and is a one and done.

Appearance – This poured a beautiful, thick, dingy orangeish-brown with a modest but staying head.

Smell – The Chinook comes out in force at the nose, definitely dry-hopped, with a small but noticeable malt base.

Taste – The Chinook is a little heavy, so if you like the hop you’ll love this beer but if not you might say it lacks diversity. The malts are second-rate players but present and accounted for.

Mouthfeel – This is big for the style, larger than medium-bodied, with some stiff but withstandable drying.

Drinkability – This one will put hair on your chest. It’s incredibly smooth all things considered.
