4.23/5 rDev -1.2%
Lightly hazy orange with slow rising carb trails. Compact layer of white foam, some minimal lace around the edges.
Pungent aroma of passionfruit and tangerine, tropical and citrusy. Amarillo is pretty classic, though this seems more exotic than I remember in other single hopped brews.
Taste is lightly sweet at first, full of fruity hoppy goodness. Passionfruit, tangerine, grapefruit. Pale malt middle, fairly light feel for a DIPA. Slightly sticky on the lips with a light residual resinous bitterness. Overall easy drinking and better than a couple others in the series.

A: Darker shade of yellow in color. Clear. Forms a moderate sized head. Good retention. Lots of lacing.
S: Aroma is fairly citrusy, but more like a "dry" citrusy as opposed to a "juicy" citrusy. Grapefruit, orange zest, vegetal spice. Maybe a little bit of green grass.
T: Taste is similar. On the drier side of things. Grapefruit, citrus pith and pale malts. Mildly spicy (hop spicy, not yeast spicy). A little orange and just a touch of resiny pine on the back end.
M: Medium bodied, but a bit light for a DIPA. Bitterness is fairly restrained as well for the style. Medium carbonation.
O: Good stuff. Not mind blowing, but definitely good stuff. And a bit of wheat and you've got yourself an Imperial Gumballhead.

22oz bottle into Duvel tulip. Batch 330-332.Thanks again Pidzik12. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours burnt golden with a very dense and creamy looking off-white head that took forever to slowly fade a thick greasy film.
S: Huge citrus notes of orange cream sickle, sweet tangerine juice, and lightly bitter grapefruit rind. Creamy smelling with a slight bready pale malt backbone.
T: Follows the nose with dominating orange and tangerine juice, orange sherbet, and grapefruit. The finish is sweet and juicy, with fruit nectar, tons of grapefruit peel, faint lemon zest, and a touch of evergreen mint and pine. I get a slight hint of the bready malt base poking through the hops as well. The aftertaste is bittersweet, lingering, and a touch rough around the edges from the booze. There’s an overall leafy and green herbal quality, perhaps tea.
M: Medium full body, very low and slick carbonation, smooth, oily, greasy mouthfeel. The booze is slightly noticeable but not hot.
O: Very good. Drinks really well albeit slight rougher than other high ABV dipas. Very very good. Thanks Paul.

Pours a bright clear golden with a thin collar of head and some lacing. Nose is dank with heavy pine and resinous notes. Notes of grapefruit, grass, and pine rule the nose, not much in the way of malts. The taste starts with fruity hops that become increasingly bitter. Very hop forward and bitter throughout. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated and light. Overall, not my favorite of the ninja series. Nice flavors, just somewhat one-dimensional. That being said, still a delicious DIPA.
