Another double IPA from my favorite brewery, and another home run from them. Pours cloudy tan/orange/gold. Healthy lacing. Big hops on the nose. Juicy and bitter, slight malt in the background. Mouth filling, flavorful, super tasty. Missing the metallic tang prevalent in Ninja vs Unicorn and the single hop Ninja series, but that actually helps. Highly recommend.
