Before I start off I should say that I love this beer. The malt is malty the hops are hoppy and it fits like a puzzle piece on my palate.

A) Foamy head with a hazy body. To me it seems a tad to dark for the style but thats just me being nit picky... just a tiny little bit tad

S) Hops, like hops in a bag from the lhbs packed and crisp BUT I should mention not what soever is the smell even close to the perfect heavenly smell that ipas can have...

T) this is one of those beers you have to taste to really understand. It's a perfect example of a real IPA. The hops aren't highly on center stage with the malty flavor filling all the gaps

M) the mouth feel is as expected from something almost perfect. It's not to thin not to thick its just about right

O) I love this beer though I know that out in that wide beautiful world is an IPA that really truly showcases brewing at its finest this may not be it though its pretty damn close...

4.3/5  rDev +7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured as a dense golden/ brass color that had a minimum amount of carbonation bubbles rising to the top and then a thick fluffy white layer of foam on top.

S: Zesty yeast and citrus influenced hops.

T: Flavor is more or less the same as the total domination but packs a bigger alcohol kick and more intensely bitter type of hops. Still has plenty of citrus and grapefruit at work here, but the breaded malts seem to have been drowned out somewhat by the extra dosage of hops.

A very hazy amber tan colored brew with a big fluffy off-white head that collapses to a stubborn film that deposits heavy lacing. The aroma brings evergreen and butterscotch pine hops and sticky vanilla malt. Very full and attractive. The flavor jumps out with a bright herbal hop and lemony hayseed grain which comes in a medium-plus bodied package with plentiful, but delicate carbonation. The feel is pretty sudsy, smooth and easy drinking. The grainy-hop sweetness almost approaches cloying levels but this is a very solid hop brew, some intensity but overall an anytime pleaser. Another Ninkasi triumph.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a great dark orange amber with a thick frothy head and great lacing from top to bottom.

Smells of piney floral hops, which are overpowered by a big bold caramel malt scent, more as it warms. Also smells of booze.

Tastes very boozy on my first impression, some hops and malt, very balanced flavors, however, the flavor doesn't last until the finish, and there isn't much complexity.

The feel is astringent, and thin, the booze are apparent in the astringency, but not the texture. Not a whole lot of body.

Overall this is a good beer. Like a poor man's 90 minute. The malts are slightly overpowering the hops, and for a DIPA, it is lacking a real hops presence that I was expecting from a beer called Tricerahops. While I would definitely drink this again and am glad I tried it, I won't be buying this again, as there are many more DIPAs at my local BevMo that are better.
