This is my.. 4th Ninkasi beer? So far nothing has been able to top their oatmeal stout.

Pours a slightly hazy copper that turns golden towards the edges.

Rocky white foam recedes and leaves some nice lacing.

Faintly smells of that simcoe cat urine smell, but it's not as bad as Stone beers. Floral, hoppy, cat piss.

Taste is pretty killer. Smooth, nice bitterness, great malt backbone to support this beast of a beer. Alcohol is faint, but present. Hops are piney, but incredible bready and biscuity malts are the star of this beer.

This beer lingers like an 8% ABV beer. What do you expect? I think this category is useless. Carbonation levels seem spot on.

Overall this is right up there with Ninkasi's best offerings. Not the hop bomb that most IIPAs tend to be, but the balance this beer exhibits really makes it shine. Great beer, will be seeking more out in the future.

Tried this one at random in a 22 oz bottle. Poured a beautiful dark gold. Clear, no chunks, wonderful color. Great lacy head that 20 minutes later and after writing another review, still has a good 1/4 inch on it. Mouthfeel is very good, carbonation near perfect. Te initial hop bite is slightly bitter, bit tasty... a little bit of "hop twang" here, but not enough to ruin it. A little more aroma would improve this beer. Finish is good with no aftertaste/off flavors. Tasty, drinkable... I like it.
