4.69/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Batch 123

A: Hazy dark orange - gold tinged. Nice off yellow foamy head - not very thick lacing and retention, looks like a 9.5 beer.

S: Reminds me of heady... which is a great thing of course. Not the most pungently aromatic of the series, but very very nice. Sweet pink grapefruit and sugared grapefruit rind, incredibly fresh pine. Along with the sweet grapefruit comes notes of various tropical fruits - pretty sweet. Though piney, not very resinous.

T: Very good - and again, brings heady to mind! Incredible balance, as have all of their single hop ninja series beers have been. Incredibly fresh pine and ripe pink grapefruit washes over the palate with traces of various light-colored tropical fruits. Pretty dry but the flavor lingers well. Its getting better and better as it warms - more distinct pine and grapefruit.

P: Medium/full mouth feel. Does not coat the mouth with sticky, chewy hops very much.

O: What can I say, I am a sucker for all of these beers. The best part is that I know that future batches are going to be even better. A great DIPA as it is - awesome to see these hop varieties under the spotlight.

Batch 192 day old when consumed - improved, fantastic, amazing

4.21/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A smooth pour easily achieves two fingers of yellow tan head. Head is mountainess and rocky as it slowly fades. Spots of lace are left behind. Body is nicely dark murky amber haze. Really a fuzzy mahogany hue.

Nose is sappy and full of woody hops. Spicy characters are very present throughout this very fragrant brew. A bit of rawness lingers on the nose as well.

I am immediately taken by how initially silky the hop profile is on this beer with first sip. Clean yet full on the palate is a very neat trick. Easy drinking but nicely aggressive hop feel throughout the flavor profile. Hops are raw and remind me of arugula a bit. Crisp and raw with subtle but consistent bitterness especially on the back half.

This is an overall solid and incredibly drinkable IPA. Mouthfeel is very enjoyable.
