3.55/5 rDev -12.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
22 oz. bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter. Batch #206/7/8
A: Pours a dark amber color with some brown highlights in the body. A dirty white head forms on the pour and recedes to a bubbly ring. Sticky sheets of lace are left down the glass.
S: Mango, candied grapefruit and a little honey. The malts creep up with a butter biscuit like sweetness.
T: The profile is more prevalent than the hops. Buttery with a honey sweetness and sweet breakfast biscuit notes make up a majority of the malt body. Tropical fruits are in the background with a light pineapple note. Minimal grassy notes with a slight piney bitterness on the finish.
M: Medium to light bodied with a little stickiness to the mouthfeel. Medium carbonation level with a little piney finish.
O: A little much buttered biscuit malt for my liking and a touch too sweet. To date this is probably my left favorite Ninja variants as it's not as balanced as the others.

1 PINT, 6 FL. OZ bottle
Served in a teku glass
A - It pours a murky orange/amber color. I have never seen an IPA that I could not see through at least a little. This has all kinds of suspended yeast in it. It is topped with three inches of beige head.
S - I get a floral and citrus combination in the aroma. I get a little tea, as well.
T - The first thing I taste is the floral hops. Then some of the citrus flavors come into play with a bitter grapefruit finish.
M - Medium and a little chalky.
O - This was a good IPA. I have either loved or disliked DIPA's from Pipeworks so far. I loved Ninja vs. Unicorn. I like this one.
