COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ka pow! Hop Ninja is an in-your-face West Coast double IPA. Hop flavors slice their way through a base of American 2-row malt kissed by caramel malt. Quadruple dry hopping with Simcoe, Amarillo, and Columbus creates an aroma that skillfully takes your olfactory senses hostage. A dry finish masks the sneak attack of 8.9% ABV.

Bacterial (1981) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Draft at 38 Degrees in Alhambra. Clear light amber pour with a nice white head and lacing. Hoppy citrus nose, bursting with hops in the taste with almost no bitterness (some citrus rind) and a very slightly sweet finish. Very good.

Another brilliant and dangerous creation, with all the west coastyness one could wish for. Pine Resin,mango,papaya, with a hint of malt to balance on. as delicious as it is and at 8.9% it sneaks up on you and kicks your ass!

[ Keg ][ Beachwood Long Beach ][ 5oz ][ $3-4 ][ Mini Stange ][ 5/11/14 ]
>> Pours clear orange, good white foam. Ridiculous lace. High carbonation. Nose is salty, floral, sugary tangerine. Taste is dusty, stale. Disappointing. Palate is chalky dusty. Slight white alcohol.

Amazing beer. Wow. I live for west coast IPA and this sets a mark. Haven't heard of the brewery either. Cloudy orange pour with sticky white head. Taste of sweet tangerine grapefruit and even banana. Pretty bitter and hoppy. Delicious beer. Had this from draft at the Hollister brew house

beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Tasted on tap at the 13th Bistro Double IPA Festival on 2/9/2013. This double IPA pours a light orange gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, sweet, orange and citrusy. A medium bodied Imperial India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and floral, a touch piney. Lots of orange. Nice balance between the malts and hops. Smooth, nice lingering bitterness. Very clean and dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
