3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was pineapple and some resin. The taste was slightly sweet up front, with lots of hops, a bit of pineapple, tropical fruit and then a fair amount of bitterness in the back end. Awesome.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Gorgeous clear amber gold with a foamy white head. Good lacing and head sticks around. Big sweetness - orange, sugared grapefruit peel, and bitterness - resin, fresh pine; and rye bread malt notes. As it warms, an embracing mango astringency takes form, as well as some strawberry and melon sweetness. Incredibly full, rich, and intense. An incredibly vibrant and fruity and bitter DIPA - great balance. Orange, grapefruit, lemon zest and mango explode after a slap of bitterness. There is some pineapple astringency as well. Very balanced and intense. Full for the style - chewy and sticks to the mouth. Lingers a long while Just a fantastic beer - may be the best of the ninja unicorn series, an incredible DIPA all around. Getting better each batch

Batch 91 Pours a pale/hazy deep golden pour with an orange hue, thin off white soapy head with a light sticky lacing ... aroma is very grapefruity, citrusy with a nice piney and sharp hoppy bite ... taste is pure grapefruity citrusy goodness with a nice piney punch and a nice caramel malt backbone ... resiny and delicious just a hint sugary .... mouthfeel is tingly and bitter through and through .... finish is dry and has a long lingering hop bite ... this was the latest batch and just under two months old, but its very well put together and the abv is hidden well

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (batch 87) from Neal - thanks! Pours a hazy, glowing golden orange with a slick of white foam. Aroma is sharp pine with balanced hop bitterness and complimentary citrus over a very clean and dry malt backbone. Taste is clean, resinous pine and bitterness with citrus notes and a slight touch of sweeter malt before more bitterness and pine into the finish. Clean, slightly coating mouthfeel. I know this batch is closing in on the two month mark since bottling but this beer is drinking really good and I appreciate the sub-9% ABV. Great beer!
