A: Light orange. Mostly clear, ever-so-slight of a haze. Super thin head.
S: Can not make out any hop aroma. A little malt aroma is all I smell.
T: Small malt profile. Big on the pine and tar hops. Some citrus. Dr
M: Medium-high carbonation. Dry.
O: Good IPA. But it tastes like every other super hoppy NW IPA.

Served on tap into a shaker glass.

A- Poured a fairly clear orange color with soapy off-white head that left no lace.

S- Some citrusy hops, herbal hops, and sweet oatmeal notes.

T- Lots of sweet oatmeal notes, bready, some citrusy, herbal, and earthy hops. Moderate to high bitterness.

M- Prickly carbonation, lighter bodied, and semi-dry finish.

O- Hard to believe I have given a proper review to the most popular beer in Eugene. It is not really what I look for in an IPA, lots of the herbal and earthy bitterness that I expect in hoppy Ninkasi beers that just is not really my thing. It was one of the first beers I had when I moved to Oregon and seemed fitting to give it a proper one month before I move away from Oregon. Glad to see Ninkasi's growth and they are an easy brewery to support since they do so many great things in the community, but just not my kind of IPA.
