On tap @ Hard Rock Cafe (The Aristocrats)

Appearance: Clear copper color with a two finger egg shell colored head

Smell: Cat piss, grassy, slight citrus

Taste: Grassy and catpiss is all i get

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a substantial bitterness throughout; Dry and gritty

Overall: This is one mess of an IPA. I strive to seek high quality beers, and this is far from one of them. Way too much dirty cat piss qualities. It literally reminds me of low quality weed. I wouldnt get this again, even as a local beer. Thats how uninspiring it is. For comparison, i much prefer East Ends Big Hop to this

Full Pint Brewing "Chinookie"
12 oz. brown glass bottle, "BEST BY SEPT11 2015"

Quite a nice IPA based around the three C's with Chinook coming through brightly. It's got a delicate, raspy pine quality that's backed by soft grapefruit, pineapple, apple, and berries. The malt displays a medium/medium-dark caramel character and a slight toasty graininess. Where other IPA's might go overboard on bitterness, this one is solid but not overdone (laughingly, the label reads "IBU 103.1" which would hardly be possible with a maltiness of medium girth - it's probably high 70's, maybe low 80's); but then again, the hop flavors aren't overdone either and there's enough, so it's kept in balance. Dry hopping is what really brings the hops through though, and they're nicely 'present' in the mix.

Looked forward to finding a really fresh bottle of this, and think that 07/21/15 is about as good as I am going to get. Full Pint is fairly local, and I have really enjoyed a couple of their dark beers. Poured amber with a finger of white head that left as quickly as it came. Slight haze and almost rosy hue in the light. Big, clean aromas of orange juice, ripe melon, and some subtle underlying pine. Flavors follow the nose, however, they get muddled together rather quickly and sadly. Crisp, but not overpowering bitterness on the end. Malt stands up to hop, yet I feel as though a bit more on the hop front may have been a benefit. Hint of residual sweetness on the finish. Good beer, not great beer. If you like more balanced IPAs, then this might be all right for you, if you like a hop bomb... look elsewhere.
