3.48/5 rDev -9.8%
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.

A - Nice orange color, white head dissipates to a thin ring, lacing sticking to the side of the glass.
S -A bit muted, something funky going on.
T -smooth, bitterness lingers. I'm getting some lemon rind.
M - a lot of hops
O - Meh. The funkiness is not good. A little too bitter for my tastes.

3.58/5 rDev -7.3%
22 oz. bottle, with Batch #357/58 printed on the label. Yet another new DIPA creation from Pipeworks, expectations are moderately high based on this knowledge. My bottle lists a 10.00% abv.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter.
A - Pours a bright juicy golden orange colored body with about a finger and a half of fluffy creamy off-white head. Very bubbly with some nice scattered sticky lacing. Looks very nice.
S - Smell is comprised of dirty herbal hops - pine, grapefruit, mango, soapiness, and some underlying honeyed bread malts to round things off. Lightly tropical.
T - The hops aren't as dominant on this one as much as the others, but it is still nice. Dry, bready honeyed malt seems to take center stage, though. Herbal pine, mango, grapefruit, papaya fruitiness is in play. Lightly soapy / creamy. Again, lightly tropical, but more bready than anything, I would say.
M - Feel is smooth and creamy, with bready dryness on the finish mixed with some subtle hop resins. Medium bodied with good carbonation.
Overall, it is sadly not one of Pipeworks' better offerings in comparison to their other DIPA's, but it is still a nice beer. High 10.00% abv is extremely well-hidden, like most of their offerings. Worth a try but it pales when compared to some of the others.
