Pours deep amber with white head, aroma of huge hops, with grapefruit, tropical fruit, and even floral and pine notes. Taste up front is big bitter grapefruit, sweet passion fruit, other tropical fruits leading into pine, slight caramel and biscuit malt to balance, and a big piny floral bitter finish. Fantastic brew.

1 oz Sample at the GABF in Denver. Not much on the nose. Little citrus and carmel. Light amber red color and a bit hazy in the sample cup. Good citrus pine and carmel taste but did not seem as hoppy as most doubles. Medium carbonation, resin like. Balanced alcohol (hardly even knew it was there).

Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, oranges, apricots, light citrus hops, and a touch of herbal hops. It pours a mostly transparent dark amber with just a touch of haze and a large creamy head that has great retention and lacing...quite an impressive looking beer. The flavor starts with a moderate combination of caramel and tropical fruits. The finish has moderate piney and grapefruit hops and a touch of sweet citrus notes.

I first had this beer at a restaurent in Pullman, WA. When I learned that this was a ninkasi beer it further boosted their rep for me
