4.33/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Beautiful dark honey with a generous, just off-white head which settles quickly but never fully disappears. Very standard appearance for the style, but it might be my favorite color of beer hence the high score. The smell is really intense! Huge aroma here even before letting it warm up a bit. Obviously a double IPA with double hops. Really hoppy but a great balance of fruitiness without overdoing it. Tropical fruitiness, pineapple and citrus right up front. Dig a little deeper and there's a delicious, almost cinnamon toast maltiness.

Oh yeah it's bitter. While the smell was absolutely perfect, my first reaction to the taste is that it's a bit one-dimensional. Super hoppy. While probably not as bitter as 90-minute, Tricerahops is certainly NOT for the beer newbie. After just 10 minutes of warming I would say the flavors have opened up and become more pleasant. Hard to believe it's nearly 9% ... until you start to feel it.

My first taste of Ninkasi, and a very well-made beer. I'll definitely try their other offerings if I get a chance.

3.96/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

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.
