Poured from a bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip.

L: Cloudy medium to light golden pour. 2 fingers of thick foamy head. Outstanding sticky lacing.

S: Pine and resin... a bit of dry citrus. Lots of hops!

T/F: Bready malts provide the backbone upon which an absolute ton of spicy resinous Chinook hops absolutely take control of your palate. Lots of great pine and evergreen... grapefruit and citrus, but not super 'juicy'. Oily and resinous. Medium in body... great carbonation. Pine in the aftertaste. Smooth and very drinkable.

O: Not surprisingly... a fantastic IPA from Lawson's. Just different enough from 'Sip of Sunshine' (another absolute favorite) to be interesting. Just an awesome beer and these guys are tops at what they do.

Poured from tap at Worthy Kitchen in Woodstock, VT into their flute.

Pours a light copper color with a very mild haze. Mostly transparent. Frothy white head slowly settles, tons of clingy lacing. Head is near pure white.

Aroma is deep hoppy resins and pine. Bit of spiciness reminiscent of some European hop varieties (e.g. Saaz).

The flavor is like fresh pine needles in spring and a bit of spiciness. Chinook has a flavor profile all its own.
Medium body and moderate carbonation, very smooth.

Overall an excellent brew. Smooth classic IPA flavors with a hop profile different than what is usually seen. Similar to others, but the pine is different than the other west coast piney hop varieties.

L- Pours a hazy yellow with a modest 1 finger white head. Lacing is patchy.
S- The nose is full of a tropical citrus mix of grapefruit and orange.
T- The taste is an even mix of the grapefruit and a spicy pine flavors. Starts out citrus and finishes piney and bitter. Fantastic.
F-Carbonation is light and the overall mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium.
O- This beer is tremendous. With a light fruitiness and strong pine finish this beer is excellent display of the Chinook hop. Different than the typical New England IPA. Pick this up if you have the opportunity. I'll be buying this whenever I see it.
