What can I say? Hoppy, Hoppy, Hoppy! This is definitely brewed to be consumed during the heat of summer. As the label implies: find a nice shade tree, pop the cap, & enjoy the summer. Drink fresh!

From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a transparent gold, thick full head. Aroma is verry hoppy, floral, slight malt. Taste is light bodied, very bitter. Finishes well with a heavy carbonation. Good beer, Ninkasi sure loves its hops.

(22oz bomber) clear medium to deep gold, excellent offwhite lacing and soapy bubbles. Nose of heavy malt, herbal hops, grassy, touch of corn creeping in but not offensive, candi sugar, and cream. Smells pretty unique for an IPA. Taste is rather herbal and grassy, oily body, lightly bitter citrus peel, balanced by the heavy malt, though no unfermented sugars going on in here, creamy finish with medium, natural-feeling carbonation.

Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival. Happy hops -- mango, orange, melon, grapefruit, pine...all backed by a solid caramel malt body. Juicy with a soft bitter finish.

Nice grapefruit essence to this, both in the aroma and taste. Hoppiness lingers on the palate (nicely, not overpowering). Slightly hazy golden body, fine carbonation, thin silky head. Citrus nose, pine, flowers. Really, really nice.

Not a typical IPA. Somewhat cloudy appearance. A bit fizzy, not much head to speak of. Good though.

On tap @ Draughts (Thousand Oaks). Orange pour with a white head. Nose is orange, grapefruit, and plenty of pine. Fairly floral, some sweet bread, and grass. Decent flavor of grapefruit peel, orange peel, and pine. Grassy hops, bread, apricot, and a strong floral note. Subtle fruity tartness.
