The Ninja vs Unicorn was an excellent DIPA! The beer poured a nice amber with thick white head that left a perfect ring of lacing all the way to the bottom. The scent carried fresh hops that leaned toward bitter fruit. The taste was a very well balance beer, but finished with a grapefruit flare. The mouthfeel was full in body with good carbonation. Overall this was a very easy drinking DIPA....very smooth....could session this big boy.

Thanks to chickenI3rest for this bottle, which pleases the old DM in me. 22 oz. liquid container, said non-solids split with my wife.
The pour is clear to moderately muddy orange, with the refuse coming from the bottom third of the bottle. Carbonation is not notable, though I've now made a false statement. Nose is a spring field in full bloom - not that we in Minnesota would know what that smelled like - with a ditch full of pine & citrus. This pleases me.
Ninja vs. Unicorn sounds like a brew from the lost notes of Gary Gygax, may he rest in peace. Beer opens with a mythical slash of hop bitterness right in your face. Like, skin close. Pine cuttings fill the senses. Mid-tongue brings citrus, a gentler floral push than the nose, light white pepper. More bitterness. Finish is a touch of caramel which, frankly, seems a little scared. Then some more thick, tongue abrading bitterness. This is a rip-sipping beer, like, sips every 20 or 30 seconds.
Tickled. Bitterness plus tasty equals what you're supposed to do with a IIPA. Put it in a frame & put it next to IIPA on dictionary.com. Excellent, & I am going to cherish every drop.
