I'm stoked about Ninkasi being available in bottles. It has been one of my staples on draft for some time. They are the epitome of the Northwest brew scene. Masterfully crafted hop driven beers with dimension and balance. If you enjoy the hoppy brews, you will not be disappointed.
Hazy orange in color this hop driven brew pours with a small white head. The aroma is big and fruity, all hops with an orange, tropical and floral smell. The flavor has a fresh hoppy quality to it with orange rind, and some grapefruit along with some grassiness. There is a touch of caramel malt in there someplace but make no mistake, it is all about the hop.

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.

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.
