22oz bottle from Batch #124 shared with Shaun #1 and Doug in snifters last night, 6/3/2013.
Aroma: We just had a growler of Ephraim earlier in the evening and when I cracked this one open, this was an instant flashback to Ephraim. So much grapefruit hitting me in the face, along with some pine. No question, there's got to be Simcoe in Ephraim, because this one was also hitting on all cylinders. (4.5)
Colour: Pours amber, with a nice fluffy off-white head that takes its time to dissipate into a thick white film. Some decent lacing, not a great amount. Very clean-looking and begs to get poured into my mouth. (4.25)
Flavour: Simcoe all the way, baby. Its a bit different than Ephraim, but it is just as well put-together. It's got the citrus for sure, but the pine definitely is more present throughout than in the Ephraim. The malt backbone is very nice and caramelly; it's there more so than in Ephraim, which makes it a bit thicker sweet if that makes sense. Overall, very hopped up but with a great malt component which I've come to expect from Pipeworks. (4.5)
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, good carbonation, piney aftertaste that is resinous and dry.. even a bit earthy. (4.25)
Overall: Another awesome Ninja from Pipeworks. They honestly can't do anything wrong with their DIPAs at this point. (4.5)
