4.31/5 rDev +3.9%
Pours golden in color with a very slight haze and anyone finger white fluffy head that retains nicely.
Smell is incredible. Fresh ripe strawberries dominate the nose along wit a very mild sweet citrus aroma. Light sweet grain and light butterscotch yeast aromas leave this aroma something really special.
Taste unfortunately has high bitterness and a mild herbal flavor. It's still very good, I would have loved some of the fruity flavors to show. Mild sweet grainy flavors finish along with light butterscotch flavors.
Mouthfeel is good. Crisp refreshing medium bodied and bitter. Lots of hoppy oils and resin coat the mouth.

4.03/5 rDev -2.9%
Hazy bright golden yellow. Fluffy head with spotty lacing.
Nice citrus aromas. Orange and tangerine. Light lemon.
More citrus flavor with a grainy malt presence.
Sticky but clean mouthfeel.
A very good beer but by Pipeworks standards just ho hum. The citrus gives way to the grainy malt and overall flavor is subdued when compared to the other ninjas.

22 oz. bottle, with Batch # 303 304 printed on the label. Another new beer in Pipeworks' line-up of Ninja Imperial IPA's, only this one being brewed with new unique German hop varieties. I'm pretty excited to have it, and my expectations are good.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter.
A - Pours a nice bright golden orange colored body with just over a finger of fluffy soapy off-white head. Some nice streaks of lacing. Nothing spectacular, but it looks pretty nice.
S - Smell is fruity, unique, and distinct from the others. Trademark creaminess, fruity mango, pineapple, husky melon, dry grassiness, soapiness, some yeast must, and a hint of spice.
T - Taste follows the nose - citrus, pineapple, mango. Juicy. Very soapy. Earthy / bready / grassy. Has that Pipeworks feel to it, but you can tell the hops are much different than what they usually use.
M - Feel is smooth, creamy, sticky, bitter, resinous, and dry. Piney / grassy / citric hop bitterness on the palate. Feels just a bit more dry than I'm used to.
Overall, a nice showcase of some new German hop styles, but I would have preferred a single hop beer to have better kept with the theme, and to better showcase the variety of hop. Either way, it came out tasty, and is another nice addition to the Pipeworks family. Glad to have gotten the chance to try this.
