Bottle - Tropical fruits and a sweet malt backbone. Clear gold with a bubbly white head. Orange and a citrus bitterness with a bit of pine. A decent IPA but nothing great, the bitterness is a bit overwhelming.

Light, citrus heavy nose with a sweeping, effervescent hop fervor. It’s a good intermediate IPA, when you don’t feel like trudging through a murky abyss of joyous - but steep - hopiness. A pretty good summertime brew with kick. Lots of points for Ninkasi on this one.

Bomber. Pours gold with white head. Nose is orange, caramel, grassy. Flavour is more orange than anything, with more dry hop grassiness. A bit thinner and drier than expected at the finish. Good stuff, but to me nothing remarkable as it was to many raters, could just be that I try a lot of this style being in the PNW.

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.
