With a name like that, expectations are high....but it appears form ratings here, not met.

No freshness info on the bottle...for a brewery the size of Ninkasi, that is terrible.
Jeez, you work next door to Nike.....pick up some marketing skillz!

Pours clean gold, Head is modest, a bit creamy, lingers for awhile.
A well-bittered IPA....but not much else going on.
ABV is a pedestrian 6/7%.

Honest question: What, exactly, does this beer "totally dominate"?
Not a very complex offering...it's a well-bittered IPA.
Meh. There's better, there's worse.

12 oz bottle, nice piney aroma. Strong, distinct, bitter aftertaste on this IPA. I'm glad they started providing this in 6 packs, a real solid, bitter IPA.
