Though originally brewed as a "Christmas" beer, this piney IPA, brewed almost exclusively Chinook hops, was so enjoyable we decided to put it into the 'year round' rotation. With it's golden yellow color, rich aroma, and drying body, it's hard to stop drinking this one.

This one is hazy, luminous yellow in the glass -- exactly how I like my IPAs. The nose on this is no hop bomb. If you want tropical fruit, find a Heady. It's a subtle piney nose. This is light, soft as a warm towel and endlessly crushable. As the name indicates, piney hops predominate. There is not a wrong note in this beer. Expertly crafted, but there is also nothing that really reaches out and grabs you like Julius. A great beer overall.

16 oz can was poured into a tumbler glass.

Appearance: A two finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy golden yellow color with slight vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank too.

Smell: Resiny resiny pine, caramel, biscuity, and toasted malts.

Taste: This beer is just like it smells with light bitterness and chewy notes in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, refreshing, light tingly bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Will have to say I enjoyed this one. Would be nice to have a blend of hops. Buf I guess this beer will do with mostly chinook. Last of the 3 cans and now wish I saved 1 for later in the week.
