Batch 119 - bottled 2 days ago

A: Blood orange - slightly hazy. Nice tangerine-tinged beige head.

S: Incredibly dank and fresh cascade hopped beer. There is the cascade earthy spiciness with a rich pipeworks fruitiness found in all these NvU beers. With a vigorous swirl musty overripe pineapple, mango, strawberry and tangerine jump out of the glass. A very nice astringency and super fresh pine. There is a solid caramel backbone

T: Seamless blend of fruits and hops. Juicy tangerine, mango, orange juice, sweet grapefruit - a strawberry sweetness as well. Incredible - well balanced with the cascade spice.

P: Sticky, full, refreshing - feels great.

O: Another great installment in the ninja unicorn series, and an interesting look at cascade hops

A: Pours a hazy orange with a nice two fingers of head. Good lacing.

S: Tropical fruit, citrus, lemon and oranges. Smells sweet with a bit of bitterness. Nice character of Cascade hops.

T: Taste follows the nose. A nice upfront burst of sweet tropical fruit, like oranges, lemon, kiwi, followed by a subtle bitter finish. The malt is really much sweeter than expected, which may have led to more fruity, sweetness.

M: Smooth buttering, perfectly carbonated. A bit sweet and leaves the mouth coated with a sticky sweetness.

O: Another great Ninja series beer. Personally my favorite of the series has been Simcoe, but Cascade is closely behind, slightly edging out Citra. This is an easy sipper for almost 10% with a nice sweet/bitter mix. Well balanced, although leaning more on the sweeter end.

Slightly hazed bright orange color. Active carbonation and and once of white head. Little lacing.

It's bursting with juicy tropical mango, lemon, and grapefruit aromas. The mango is ripe and sweet.

True to the ninja way it's a hoppy beast. Fresh and sugary mango and grapefruit. Light bready malt. The finish is long and tastes like a mouthful of skittles. It gets fruitier as it warms.

Mouthfeel is full, juicy, and sticky. Clean.

This one runs a close second to it's citra kin. A+

Cascade Ninja pours a very hazy orange color with a small head. The aroma offers a big citrus kick, with some piney notes and sweet malts. The taste is sweeter than the nose, with the more candied aspects of the hops coming out in a big way, along with earthy and spicy characters. There's also sweet malts and a nice alcohol kick. Big grapefruit peel on the finish.
