UPDATED: JUL 18, 2010 I rated this before and gave it a bad rating? Not sure why. Today my bottle is very delicious. Sweet, hoppy and bitter. Perfect example of a double. Very fresh.

By far my favorite double/ imperial style IPA. Crisp, balanced, floral and properly strong. Near perfect in my opinion. The only shame is that Ninkasi doesn’t sell or fill growlers.

This was the last of a four beer sampler from Ninkasi, and boy did I save the best for last. If I could get this regularly it would be one of my favorites.

From a bottle. This is a phenomenal double IPA if you like a nice hoppy-pine bitter finish. An excellent beer.

Good ipa with a strong malt. I smelled a lot of pine. Tasted some citrus.
On tap at Murphy's in SF.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2012 Golden, shining ale with creamy beige head. Smooth, well developed aroma with sweet hops, if that makes sense. Solid backbone of malts but still the hops are the stars here. Showcase for American craft beer, very nicely wrapped bitter hop forward goodness. Yum. (At Dean?s Tasting)

Hoppy aroma that doesn’t let on the unique qualitys of this brew. Pillowy head that lingers and laces the glass as you drink. The taste starts out bitter with hints of alcohol but quickly gains a sweet malty quality. The finish of the beer tasted to me almost like sweet tea. A very interesting beer, but it is one of my new favorites.

Such a phenomenal Double IPA. Strong aroma hits you no less than the full bodied flavor. I had this on tap at McCool’s by my house. They have a 2 pint limit, bummer. It’s very bitter but balanced, in an over-the-top way. Smooth going down all the way to last drop.

23/09/2009. Wow! Beautifully balanced combination of malt, hop and alcohol. The malt and alcohol sweetness alongside the citrus of the hop give this beer that "screwdriver" character that a lot of good strong American hoppy ales can take on. There’s a tropical fruit and sweaty chartacter about it that makes me think of New Zealand hops but I doubt they are used in a beer that’s so close to the centre of the hop universe. Dangerously drinkable. Good name, good packaging, great beer.
