On tap at the brewery the other evening.

The beer pours a golden amber color with fairly decent head retention and light lacing. The nose has some noticeable tropical fruit fruit from the mosaic hops, but it's not all that prominent. However, what there is blends fairly well with the light pine and dry citrus. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely in this tasty pale ale, and the beer delivers a fairly decent amount of flavor for a 5.3% abv. beer. This pale ale is very much on the dry side, and mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, with a fairly long, lightly bitter, dry finish. Alcohol is barely noticeable in this pleasant, enjoyable beer.

Nothing extraordinary here, but I still thought this a tasty effort from the folks at Ninkasi.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with fairly earthy hop qualities all around.
