CO2 growler into a 12oz glass. Foamy head with big floral aroma, lacing delicate, EKG graph circling the glass. Mouth feels very malty and satisfied. Floral oils in complex waves breaking like a gentle surf from tongue to cheek. No hint of the 8.8 ABV. I have drank this beer several times in the past and it is consistently great. The best from Ninkasi. Delightful, cheers!

650ml bottle, undated so I'll assume it to be fresh as it was a very recent purchase, poured into a stemless wine glass.

The beer pours a hazy, cloudy apricot color, hues of copper and gold with a taught, firm white head, only a finger or so, even with an aggressive pour that has moderate retention but yields a tremendous amount of lace. The aroma is bitter, a bit tropical and fruity, some dankness as well, but generally earthy, sappy and resinous. The flavors follow nicely, but are much more remarkable, the fruit character is much juicier, pungent and delicious, sappy pine, thats smooth but firm, a touch of earthy grass and weeds, some tangy grapefruit with a bit of an abrasive alcohol quality at the finish, but this is still really flavorful on the tongue. The body is crisp and refreshing, just enough carb to keep things zippy and lively, coats the mouth well and finishes with a lightly dry kick.

Verdict: A delicious DIPA from Ninkasi and definitely my favorite beer from them. It's simple and straightforward but balanced and refreshing. The nose could use some complexity and layering but boy does it taste good. I'd really love to be able to enjoy this more often.
