22oz bottle poured into a DFH signature glass. No bottle date present but this was picked up for me about 2 weeks ago in VT.

A: Pours a hazy bright orange color. Half finger off white head. Some sticky lacing bits are left on the glass after swirling. Nice carbonation coming off the bottom.

S: I got lots of piney, resiny hops. But there are some sweet caramel malts in there for balance. The Chinook hop usually gives you nice pine and also some mild citrus, if memory serves.

T: Piney hop bite on the tip of the tongue. It's not overly Abrasive or anything though. Then you get alot of caramel malt and other grains. It's a nice balance, although I like HOP bombers that are not balanced, and wished this one was more like that. Nice crisp bitter hop finish on the close. You are left with that resiny hop flavor in your mouth.

M: Medium bodied IPA, true to type.

O: Very nice single hop IPA. First beer from this brewery and look forward to trying more of them, IF I can that is.

Hazy golden colour with a moderate sized white head. Great lacing. What you'd expect of a good AIPA.

Piney aroma with plenty of grapefruit. Touches of light malt. A straight forward single hop aroma.

Quite bitter with a solid hit of pine resin and grapefruit. Cohumulone is well balanced leaving just a touch of harsh hop oil.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Solid.

This is a purists IPA. Straight forward C hop flavour from the Chinook with a light maltiness. Good.

Bottle courtesy of youbrewIdrink. Thanks Joe!

Pours cloudy orange with a 1.5 finger white head leaving excellent retention.

I get a distinct cat pee aroma which is usually indicative of other hops, but nonetheless getting them from Chinook. A little bit of pine and some sweet bready malt.

A little bit of dank piney hoppiness opens up the palate. A touch of the same sweet bready malt from the nose, but more subdued. Finishes with a grapefruit bitterness and somewhat dry.

Fairly light with medium carbonation levels although there is a little stickiness here.

Not a terribly complex beer, but still pretty tasty and probably better than most non-Citra single hop profile beers I've had.
