On draft at Henry's 12th Street Tavern, Portland, Oregon.

Poured a medium copper hue with a one and a half finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured herbal and grapefruit hops.

Herbal and citric hops dominated the taste, with a secondary grainy malt.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a strong residual hop spice.

Overall a tasty hop driven, spicy IPA. A good example of the northwest style.

my first beer from Ninkasi - a good overall IPA that hits the marks that one should expect from an IPA. A citrus/pine combo, easy to drink. While it doesn't strike a perfect balance of malt to hops, it's close enough and an enjoyable beer.

A copper-toned amber colored beer, an off-white head that leaves good lacing.

The smell is sweet, dried fruits, citric, grapefruit, floral, pine.

Tasting some sweetness and acidity upfront, but is mainly dominated by the bitter hops. Toffee, dried bitter oranges, shortbread and grapefruit peel.

Medium to high carbonation, a good body and a very dry finish.

A well done American IPA, with the hops dominating as they should. Something to sip extendedly.
