Very solid West Coast IIPA. A bit more balanced than others, but still offers plenty of hop goodness.

Pours a nice copper color. Smell of citrus and fruit. Beer is juicy and full of citrus. Bitterness almost taste like a grapefruit. Easy to drink. Good balance of fruit with the bitterness. Solid beer from a solid brewery.

APPEARANCE: Crystal clear and bright orange in color. The head foams up to about two fingers thick with a moderately aggressive pour. It settles somewhat quicker than I expected given the foaminess, but it doesn’t vanish altogether. A nice, quarter-inch cap with a little topography remains in place. There is a surprising amount of foam for a Double IPA here. The lacing is consistently layered throughout the glass, covering about 40% of the back of the glass.

SMELL: The smell was evident as the beer was being poured and the head was just beginning to foam. Even at this point, a few minutes after the pour, I can still smell it without putting my nose near the glass. Tangerine hits me first with a very pleasant piney and mildly grassy back. A little resinous, very intense and delicious smell.

TASTE: The tangerine from the nose is right up front on this one with a slightly more bitter citrus (lots of grapefruit) character rounding it out near the back of the palate. Some tropical fruits also dance around a weed-like flavor and some subtle grass.

MOUTHFEEL: Exceptionally well balanced; medium to slightly big body with a little sweet followed by a little dry and an increasing bitterness throughout each sip. The carbonation is a little on the light side with just a tickle, but there’s enough to make this beer work.

OVERALL: Excellent beer. I’m very excited to have this one finally arrive in Colorado and look forward to a lot more Ninkasi releases out here.

Appearance - Pours a copper amber with two fingers of foamy white head.

Smell - citrus hops, grapefruit peel, citrus, hint of pine resin, bready caramel malts.

Taste - Citrus hops followed by a pungent hit from the grapefruit peel then goes into the bready caramel malts, citrus, and hint of pine resin.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a lingering bitterness from the grapefruit peel.

Overall - An enjoyable DIPA. This one is solid in all areas. A definite try for those who are new to the style.
