Pours a nice amber with a thin cream lacing. Smells like a typical summer brew. Citrus-y. I like the color and the taste is about on point with the typical Ninkasi brews. I don't know if it's the water or what, but i feel like i can taste a Ninkasi brew 9 out of 10 times. The mouthfeel is what loses me though. Way too thin, definately needs more carbonation. Overall, not a bad brew but definately needs a bit more refining.

I got this in a variety pack of Ninkasi beers from Costco.

Appearance- copper color, nice size head, nice lacing

Smell- floral hops, some malt

Taste- floral, citrus hops, very nice

Mouthfeel- medium bodied

Drinkability- I thought it was very good. Definitely would drink this one again!

Clear amber colored ale with a small white colored head. This one has a distinct orange color. It is in the spectrum I like to call IPA Orange.

Smells of toasted grain and mild herbal hops. Faint grapefruit aroma.

Starts out dry and woody. Dry and a little more bitter than I would have expected. Mildly citrus mostly grapefruit with some soda cracker toasted wheat flavor. Slightly more bitter than I would like but it is far from a bad beer.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a decent beer, it could be slightly less bitter but it is a good beer if you like a very dry pale ale.
