COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed and dedicated to the believers of Ninkasi. Rich dark malt complexity is balanced by a plentiful hop presence bringing together perfection in every sip. Who knew believing had so many rewards.

22 oz bomber from whole foods Portland - I love ninkasi beers but this is not a summer favorite. Heavier, maltier than most ninkasi's. the heVy malt dukes it out with the hops. I'm sure this would be more well received in the dead of winter. Not bad, but the bottom of the ninkasi list. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This exudes a "malt forward" style ale. Dark copper red appearance with muted carbonation allowing the flavors of chocolate, black licorice and chicory to move front and center. Nice bittering hop finish. If you like the red ale style, this ought to find a place in your ’frige.

Pours a dark copper with brown foamy head. Caramel/nutty aromas with very faint hop smell. Dry on the palate with more apparent hop bitterness balanced well with the caramel and nutty malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tgncc (2664) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2013
At Savor NYC 2013. The aroma is caramel, nutty, chocolate. Some citrus hops. The flavor is almost identical, decent amount of hops, but mainly malt forward. Medium/thick in body. Pine, citrus on finish. Nicely done.

Brewfessor (4) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013 does not count
Bottle consumed in a tasting glass. May 21, 2013. Aroma: Strong amber/dark malt lends a caramel body, ripe red fruits/dried fruit. Citrusy+floral hop notes. Slightly musty. Appearance: 18ish SRM-Dark red/Amber, tan head with a good moussey appearance. Dark orange/light amber highlights. Taste: Caramel and toffee dominate the attack which quickly transforms into red fruit and tropical hop flavors. A solid bitter backbone balances the malt. Ends somewhat toasty. Mouthfeel: Medium to medium-heavy body, medium-low carbonation. Overall: Good beer. Nose is more impressive than taste but the beer is balanced. Kind of ends up being a situational beer because of it’s darker body but higher hop presence.

22oz bottle to shaker. Pours beautiful dark amber color with tan head. Smells floral and piny with nice hint of hops. Nice full body taste with a hint of hops as well. Very crisp, tastes like what you expect from an amber beer but with a twist of signature Ninkasi hops. Finishes nicely with just the right amount of carbonation. Great beer
