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.

brown/red pour, slightly cloudy with white head - aromas of caramel and raisins - flavors the same with a lingering brown sugar. Nice.

Definitely a red. Solid ale taste. Moderate bitterness and a decent aftertaste. It’s okay

Not the best IPA I've had. The hops are there but it is a dull flavor without much body to it. It also is plain so in order to really be a good IPA it should have a better kick in my opinion.

Pours Amber with thick sudsy head. Strong malt flavors and aroma. It is well done and the smoky flavor is big and bold.

Deep red with a dense, cream coloured head. A beautiful and fruity aroma, theres also nice hints off biscuit and toffee brought about by the dark malts. Those dark malts are a big presence in the taste, toffee and molasses. A rrally nice bitterness hit which helps balance the sweetness. The aftertaste and palate are wonderful, the beer just melts in the mouth and allows the hops to linger. Good carbonation and density.

blankboy (6359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
[My bottle (660ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel] Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy along with some toffee, nuts and some light vegetal notes. Malty flavour with a decent amount of hops, alcohol and a very bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good.

cmonster (994) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear, deep red-brown with at good sized head. Excellent retention and lace. Nutty, cereal, barnyard aroma with hint of fruit and resiny hops. Light sweet, medium bitter attack followed by a malty mid-palate. Medium body, creamy texture, and a very long, bitter, dry finish. Well made red ale.
