Salmoniform (269) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Orange amber hue with thick creamy white head. Aroma is hoppy, floral, spicy, caramel, citrus. Mouthfeel is nice with medium body and moderate carbonation. Taste is sweet initial with a strong bitter following and slight CO2 bite in the finish. Overall this is a nice brew but is more of a hoppy amber than a pale ale.

coreyc1221 (258) - Truckee, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Hoppy light malt aroma. Golden red tint in color with a pillowy white head. Lighter in taste than expected. Light hay feel tingly zing on the sides of the tongue with a dry finish.

Quantum was good. There were much less hops compared to most Ninkasi brews.

krumbum (410) - truckee, California, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Hazy copper colors. Very light aromas. Taste is good the flavors are well balanced. It is a nice mellow drink, the hop is there but itt does not run away with the show.

Clear orange copper. Caramel. Crisp. Balanced pale ale. Thin head. A lot of lacing.

BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012
A: Poured a hazy orange color with good carbonation leaving a generous whte cap S: Citrus hop profile, little bit of breadiness T: Balanced, malt forward versus hop forward. Some bread, citrus and light floral notes M: Medium bodied and tasty, Weighs on the palate though O: Good but not sessionable due to the wight of the body on this Pale

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Orange-amber ale with moderately citrus-fruity hop flavor and crisp bitterness. Big flavor yet easy to quaff. Deserves wider fame, I think. Although at 5.6% it is not a "session" beer, sorry.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 29, 2009
A little too watery for me on this one, but a solid fruity pale ale that goes down smooth.

I have to admit, I’m very partial to Ninkasi since I’m from Eugene. But I truley love this beer, and every other beer of theirs. In my opinion, they piss excelence.
