Appearance: Light orange, reddish color. Head of a half a finger on the pour and was present on the edges of the glass while drinking. Moderate active carbonation. Sticky lacing left behind at each level.
Smell: Front nose is filled with tropical fruits of pineapple, grapefruit, mangos, passionfruit, kiwis, and tangerines. Subtle piney bitterness acts well as a complimentary aroma. Crisp clean malt bill allows these wonderfully bright tropical fruits to shine so brightly.
Taste: Mouthwatering bouquet of potent fruits welcomes the palate. Grapefruit, kiwis, and mangos are the biggest players. The tropical fruits carry well into the body of the brew but the addition of some slight pine and resin. The malt body is very slight but provides a magnificent body for these hops to stand on. Citrusy fruits continue to linger on the palate long after drinking.
Mouthfeel: The hop presence is so potent yet has such a soft feeling on the palate. Insanely drinkable, almost dangerously so. Carbonation is done perfectly.
Overall: The best offering in the Ninja/Pipeworks line to date. I loved the Citra but this brew was much cleaner and I really could savor every nuance of the hop profile. Amarillo, I see you.
