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.

Oldmanriver (58) - Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2014
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.
