This was a pretty solid beer all the way around. A nice hop aroma and flavor and pretty easy to drink, though pretty much everything tastes great relaxing out in the hammock.

This "Summer IPA" pours a cloudy but translucent, golden-orange body with an inch of off-white head that settles slowly to a thin blanket. The flavor is nicely balanced, offering a grainy, cereal maltiness that is pleasantly toasty and minimally sweet, as well as a complex hop character that is floral, grassy, yellow citrus, and slightly piney with a moderate bitterness that extends the finish till the next sip. The enticingly aromatic nose echoes the flavor, with toasty and grainy malts and earthy, piney, and grassy hops. Medium in weight, quite dry on the palate, moderately carbonated, clean, and quite refreshing, which is the point of an IPA, but especially one that calls itself a Summer IPA. A fair amount of patchy lacing decorates the glass. Yet another solid and thoroughly enjoyable beer from Ninkasi.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This golden beer has a light creamy head. It is a citrus aroma and a big hop bite. Don't get much other than the hop bitterness.
