From the elusive Lawson’s Finest Liquids of Vermont, the Chinooker’d IPA is an atomic hop bomb – and that bomb’s name is Chinook.  This is Lawson’s award winning single hop IPA – with that single hop being Chinook for the slower readers out there.  Chinook hops are not for everyone, especially me – but Amy got all hot over this brew.   Call me a cascade pussy.

Bitter as hell, with a load of citrus and grapefruit in the taste.    Far from poundable, at nearly 7% ABV and with a taste bud destroying hoppiness;  Lawson’s Chinooker’d leaves a dry and almost perfumy aftertaste on the back of the tongue.

If you are looking for an East Coast hop monster, this beer certainly fits the bill and has an incredibly high flavor to dollar ratio.  I won’t be going back for another, but hell – this is the perfect brew to get Amy all chinooker’d.
