3.48/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Murky dark orange color. Light head on the pour and not present while drinking. Low active carbonation. Random lacing left behind at each level.

Smell: Saturated orange and tangerines. Plenty of other juicy tropical fruits, kiwi, papaya, mango, and pineapple. Light bitter pine on the back end. Minimal malt backbone.

Taste: Juicy sweet fruits all over the front. The fruits continue their sweetness attack yet slowly turn to a bolder, more full bodied flavor. Some pine bitterness picks up on the back end and lingers for a long time. Caramel malt and saturated orange/tangerines makes its presence known on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Sweet then bitter, lingering fruits and malt. I could use a cleaner malt bill to really let the hops shine more.

Overall: Just an okay Ninja. The Australian hops are juicy and fruity but certainly not complex. Lingering bitterness and saturated, heavy fruit tones weigh on the palate. If there's a Ninja you could skip it's this one.
