The Full Pints were new this week at Save On, and I bought two. After the other incredible beers I had earlier, this is more like more like home brew.

The head is OK and there is some lace. The color is about right. The aroma is where it started downhill. There is a lot of AIPA hoppiness but there is a funky smell too.

The taste has a bit of dirty off color taste too. Metallic and just wrong. The aftertaste is a little better.

Overall, this is not a very good AIPA, but it's not horrible either.

A- hazy pale copper color with poor head and no lacing.

S- pungent tropical citrus fruits. smells like apple, grapefruit and pineapple.

F- strong on the grapefuit and citrus.

M- dry and citrus...just like an IPA should be. simple yet tasty.

O- Not a bad IPA. The flavor and mouthfeel saved it though. It is a nice fail safe if you are out somewhere.

This is a pretty straightforward IPA that utilizes the Chinook hops fairly well but doesn't show much more than a one dimensional show. Earthy and dirty with tones of citrus and pine. Got more earth as time went on. Not too bad really. Could use a bit more vibrance for my personal taste.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. A bit of floaties in it. Smell is of hops, some tropical fruits. Taste is bitter, hoppy, a bit of tropical fruits, somewhat unbalanced for my liking. Feels medium bodied and bitter in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

Chinookie pours a hazy orange color with a smaller, yet very persistent head. The aroma has a strong candied citrus hop blast. Caramel malts hang out in the back. The taste presents a good deal more hop bitterness than the nose, that takes most of the brunt out of the candied fruits and citrus on the nose. The mouthfeel seems a bit too light, and the drinkability is solid. Overall, another good IPA. There's not enough room in my fridge for a good IPA when so many great ones are available though.
