Good beer. Excellent balance. I'd put it in the same category as the dogfish head 90 min IPA. Malt and hip flavors are equally present with neither dominating. I would personally prefer a bit more on the hop side of things. Smells malty, looks good, not a lot of carbonation but I think this bottle is a bit outdated. Good beer but nothing crazy. Totally drinkable. However for the price I might go for something a little cheaper considering it's not really outstanding enough to warrant an $11 4 pack. Give it to me in like a 13 dollar 6 pack and I totally dig it. Definitely not a west coast style IPA. If you're looking for hop forward resin and fruit, look elsewhere, if you like very balanced malt/hop ratios then this might just be for tou

Got this one on tap from the brewery and not long after, got a 22oz bottle. Much better on tap in my opinion, but that might be because it was fresh from the brewery. Regardless, a very good double IPA.

22 oz bottle poured in a pint glass. Nice copper color and white, lacey carbonation. Earthy aroma, medium body feel, and great bitter finish. I've had a few IPAs from Ninkasi and really dig the long, lingering bitter finishes that stay on the palate.

22oz bomber, no date.

A - Dark copper, hazy with no bubbles. Minimal head with decent lacing.

S - Metallic, earthy.

T - Flat, pretty much zero carbonation. Malty, earthy with minimal alcohol taste and fairly drinkable for an 8% brew.

F - Full-bodied, sweet somewhat heavy finish.

O - Flat, flat, flat! Boring, one dimensional and not something I'll be having again.

Amber to golden in color, pine and citrus hop taste very prevelant. Good lacing on glass.
