Orangy amber in color with little head from the pour. When I swirled heavily in my snifter, a creamy white head developed but dissipated quickly. Aroma is mostly malty, with grapefruit and slight piney notes as well. Grapefruit really comes out in the taste. Grapefruit, pine, some kind of spice (coriander maybe), a bubblegum kind of sweetness, a nice bite from the hops, and something else... I can't quite put my finger on the taste. It's a touch off, but this beer is super fresh. Picked up from the brewery less than two weeks ago. It hides the booziness fairly well. but there is still a fair amount of the 8.8% shining through. The mouthfeel is sticky. This beer sticks to your tongue, cheeks, and lips like thin honey; and lingers on the palate for a good minute after you take each and every sip. From what my buddy Eduardo said about Ninkasi, and what I've read from them, I was really hoping this beer was going to live up to the hype. Good, but no where near great.

Poured from bottle into rocks type glass thing in my hotel room.
Nice thick-ish head sits atop for a while and laces nicely. Clear, just shy of amber coloration. Aroma leans to the tropical side, but some resinous tones are there as well. Taste starts off really malty, but bitterness isn't far behind. This is a pretty bitter beer that needs the strong malt backbone to bring it through. Mouthfeel consists of good but not too much carbonation with a thick, chewy, looong finish. Satisfying and even though you know with the assertive malt that it's going to be high gravity and even with the aggressive hopping, it comes across smooth and drinkable.
