Served on tap into a shaker glass.

A- Poured a fairly clear orange color with soapy off-white head that left no lace.

S- Some citrusy hops, herbal hops, and sweet oatmeal notes.

T- Lots of sweet oatmeal notes, bready, some citrusy, herbal, and earthy hops. Moderate to high bitterness.

M- Prickly carbonation, lighter bodied, and semi-dry finish.

O- Hard to believe I have given a proper review to the most popular beer in Eugene. It is not really what I look for in an IPA, lots of the herbal and earthy bitterness that I expect in hoppy Ninkasi beers that just is not really my thing. It was one of the first beers I had when I moved to Oregon and seemed fitting to give it a proper one month before I move away from Oregon. Glad to see Ninkasi's growth and they are an easy brewery to support since they do so many great things in the community, but just not my kind of IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a nice amber color with a good amount of head and leaves nice lacing in the glass. Very little hop aroma but overall good balance between bitterness and body. It would benefit from more flavor in the middle. Mouthfeel is as expected.
Not my first choice but isn't bad in a pinch.

a unique ipa that has the uncommon feature of being both fruity and citrusy in hop profile, but then also being punishingly bitter. the finish on this is one of the most bitter in any beer i have ever had, which is totally unexpected. its a little less nuanced than tricerahops, but is like its slightly younger brother. still extremely robust on the hop front with literally unrivaled bitterness. light orange glow to a hazy pale beer with an inch or so of lasting white foam head. nose and taste of grapefruit hops, maybe columbus, with the fruit up front and again, insane bitterness after the swallow. malts are medium bodied but minimally flavorful. just two row and some crystal with a bit more color. carbonation is great, really lively, but the bitterness on the tongue hurts the mouthfeel and after a few sips, inhibits my ability to taste the first half of the beer. i genuinely appreciate it for what it is, and am stoked on its freshness, but the bitterness doesn't add anything for me.
