Pours light copper with a medium off white head. Liquid is clear with many small particles suspended in the drink. Smell is dank and earthy with subdued notes of pine and citrus. Carbonation is medium and the body is medium light. Tastes moderately sweet with light malts and hops giving an earthy citrus flavor. Overall, this beer is solid. At 5.9% this beer is very sessionable and a good choice as a six pack to be had throughout the night.

-clear yellow-orange can pour with a thin head and a clementine aroma. The flavor is light orange and pineapple with a bit of malt. Hop bitterness is relatively low. This is a very light-bodied ale.

12 oz can- Pours mostly clear with a little bit of particles floating about and a medium white head. Aroma is spicy hops, resinous, citrus, grassy. The taste is citrusy, more so than the aroma, grainy, pine, clean and refreshing, body is medium to thin, but doesn't feel watery, just super crushable. When i picked this up, i assumed this was their hazy NE style interpretation, but it's just a citrusy IPA. A good one though, enjoying it.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a slightly hazy, golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, juicy. Taste is citrus, cracker malts, well balanced, mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid and highly refreshing beer.

For under 6% ABV this IPA (pale ale?) has a great full body with a very fruity aroma and taste. Malts balance well to give alot of flavor without the high alcohol. Minimally bitterness and finishes sweet and clean. I've only had 1 other beer from Ninkasi and didn't care for it much, but I'm glad I gave this brewery a revisit. This is a fine IPA. Enjoy!

I never want to get into a battle, especially when it comes to beer reviews. But there was a gentleman who rated this beer, and he was quite disrespectful. To me this beer is everything it says it is. 5.9% ABV with enough hop kick to satisfy throughout. The Finish takes on a feel of a $15 six pack, yet I only paid $9. 99 for it (Tax Included) It is not 'cloudy' like a 'quote-unquote' 'New England' style IPA. But it does have some of the greatest, minimal hazy particles that I've ever seen. In my opinion this beer can stand up to the test of time and become a year-round staple.

12 oz can. Pours hazy yellow gold with a medium creamy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is wheat malts with some funky sweet fruits and light green onion hops.

The flavor is sweet wheaty biscuit malts and fruit with an odd medicinal bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, just OK. I remember this being better last time I had it.

8oz glass at Beer Revolution YEG Oliver Square, the only place in town that has this available, for the moment, it would appear.

This beer appears a slightly hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with one finger of weakly puffy, loosely foamy, and mildly bubbly off-white head, which leaves some defrosting windshield lace around the glass as things slowly progress southward.

It smells of grainy and crackery pale malt, some tame muddled domestic citrus rind, a further indistinct tropical fruitiness, and some plain leafy, weedy, and dank green hop bitters. The taste is bready and doughy pale malt, some still hard to discern orange and generic grapefruit citrus peel, a damp minerality, and more kind of underwhelming leafy, dank, and resinous verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is pretty innocuous in its workaday frothiness, the body a decent medium weight, and generally smooth, the hops of the benevolent sort here, apparently. It finishes off-dry, the malt and lingering fruity hop essences presiding.

Overall - yeah, this isn't a bad iteration of the sub-style, per se, as it is certainly juicy, but in an understated manner. Easy to put back, and with no hint of the extra point of the ol' wowee sauce quotient, so I can't really complain all that much, can I?
