A crisp, refreshing pale, that doesn’t sacrifice flavor for drinkability. A Northwest session beer, hoppy and smooth, that everyone can enjoy.

after4ever (6468) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Draft at SB. Pours a hazy medium amber with a loose and creamy tan head. Mild orange peels on the nose, mostly brown bread and a bit of caramel. Indistinct. Creamy medium body with light carb. Caramel, brown bread, orange peel mid palate...tastes like everybody’s first batch of APA. Not really what we’ve come to expect from Ninkasi.

RedSox2004 (1384) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Golden orange with a one-finger white head and nice lacing. Aromas of leafy hops up front, followed by a moderately strong caramel malt. Nice balance of floral hop bitterness and modest caramel sweetness on the tongue. Light to medium body, creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a crisp finish. A beer to have if you’re having more than one.

A very nice balanced pale ale. A little more citrus comes through than some of the peers. A great lunch beer.

jredmond (5835) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Draft at alewife. Pours a copper amber body with this white head and nice lacing. Aroma is faint metallic and stale hop. Dear Christ, I’m praying that this is old because this is god awful. Essentially like drinking wet pennies and stale malted-out hop juice. Not right.

drsandman (505) - New York, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours a clear light amber, small head. Aroma is pine, bitter fruit rind, caramel, bread, hops. Taste is super bitter, a little much for my liking on a pale... Not a lot of depth of flavor here, simple bitter APA.

fiulijn (15714) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Hazy golden color with creamy head. Mild aroma of malt, a bit lemony. The mouthfeel is not too dry, quite round; the malt is present, but its profile is quite simple; the bitterness is strong, but the hop is not shining either, and it ends with some unpleasant chicory bitterness.
Ordinary Ale.

Salmoniform (1179) - 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 (275) - 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.
