4.3/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
22oz bottle, <1 wk fresh, from Beer Temple, poured into a Spiegelau tulip glass at 40 degrees.
Appearance is a deep golden orange clear body with large fluffy white head with great retention and lacing.
Smells of piney resinous hops, grapefruit and lemon juice, a little bit of sweet orange juice and sweet malts.
Body is heavy on the grapefruit and pine with some lemon rind as well, a lingering citrus bitterness but not an overly bitter beer, the beer is quite drinkable for 9.5% and while the beer is not overly hoppy the balance is good with the malt backbone.
Mouthfeel is moderate carbonation, maybe a tad under-carbonated, medium bodied, dry finish, not too sticky or cloying.
Overall a great DIPA and probably second only to Citra in the Ninja series. Get it if you can - definitely worth it!
