bomber into tulip.

A: very cloudy. pours a pinkish hue. head is bubbly and slightly off-white. good retention. tons of sticky lacing.

S: minor oxidation. smells fruity. significant malt presence. not getting blown away by the cascade hops here.

T: pretty fruity. pear, melon, grapes. decent amount of caramel. especially in the finish. similar to the nose, really not blown away by the hops which is a bit of a shame. regardless, not a bad flavor.

M: good carb. medium/full body.

D: good, not great. really a bit disappointed seeing the hype around the ninja brews. wish I was more taken. I gotta give this a pass mostly based on price point and hype.

A - Orange with a hazy body. Lemon accents. Nice white head on it.

S - Orange and pine with a slight citrus presence. Lots of wet and resiny hops to it. Slighty medicinal and wet grass

T - Strong bitter and grapefruit hops that give it a strong bitter bite to it. It definitely has a wet grassy and fresh hop flavor to it. The hops remain on in the finish.

M - Thick resiny hops remain on the tongue. Medium body with a light stickiness to it

O - Big, thick and resiny beer with a good bitter kick to it. One of the wettest beers I've had that highlights the cascade hops well.

Batch 119 - bottled 2 days ago

A: Blood orange - slightly hazy. Nice tangerine-tinged beige head.

S: Incredibly dank and fresh cascade hopped beer. There is the cascade earthy spiciness with a rich pipeworks fruitiness found in all these NvU beers. With a vigorous swirl musty overripe pineapple, mango, strawberry and tangerine jump out of the glass. A very nice astringency and super fresh pine. There is a solid caramel backbone

T: Seamless blend of fruits and hops. Juicy tangerine, mango, orange juice, sweet grapefruit - a strawberry sweetness as well. Incredible - well balanced with the cascade spice.

P: Sticky, full, refreshing - feels great.

O: Another great installment in the ninja unicorn series, and an interesting look at cascade hops

Slightly hazed bright orange color. Active carbonation and and once of white head. Little lacing.

It's bursting with juicy tropical mango, lemon, and grapefruit aromas. The mango is ripe and sweet.

True to the ninja way it's a hoppy beast. Fresh and sugary mango and grapefruit. Light bready malt. The finish is long and tastes like a mouthful of skittles. It gets fruitier as it warms.

Mouthfeel is full, juicy, and sticky. Clean.

This one runs a close second to it's citra kin. A+

Batch #s 239-241

a: caramel amber. 1.5 finger frothy white head.

s: Citrus (grapefruit, mango, orange, pineapple)

t: Follows the smell, citrus (orange, mango, grapefruit) hop blast with some pine intermixed . Juicy. Sweet maltiness to close out. seemingly low bitterness

m: medium low carbonation & medium body. syrupy. juicy.

o: One of the better DIPAs in the (formerly known as) Ninja series. Taste doesn't quite match the aroma. Drinks all of its 9.5%. Solid but not memorable.
