UPDATED: APR 1, 2016 Can. Clear semi-dark yellow pour, with a white head. Tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, somewhat sweet, light notes of caramel, moderately bitter, and citrus. Tasty DIPA, a bit sweet, but nice flavor.

Oh-ho-holy shit. This beer comes from panicaholic which means I owe him a huge thanks. Ninja vs. Unicorn is something of a legend here in the Midwest. Sadly, itís not available in my area. I was pretty excited to see 2 cans waiting for me in my Free Beer Week package. I practiced self-restraint by waiting a whole few hours to drink it. Orange pour - lots of head. Tropical aroma with big notes of grapefruit, orange, mango, pineapple, and tangerine. Flavor carries it all forward with some sticky, piney character and just enough biscuit malt to be noticeable. This is a big IPA, but itís not catty or abrasive. Plenty of bitterness yet some juicy and nectar-like notes to keep things from getting too harsh. Beautiful stuff.

A hazy golden/orange color with a thin white head. Aroma of hops, citrus and some tropical fruits. Taste is dominated by hops with a nice bitter finish. A good IIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

seymour (1827) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Shared at the StlBrews meeting from SPECTACULARLY adorned tall-boy can into a nonic half-pint glass. It poured a mostly-clear yellow colour with sudsy white foam and lace. Neutral grainbill with emphasis on the over-the-top hoppiness: lemongrass, basil, mint, grapefruit, musk, marijuana, pineapple, melon, strawberries, black berries, black currant, grass, earth, black pepper spice. Light body, well-rounded mouthfeel, strong carbonation, everlasting hoppy aftertaste. Above-average A-IPA.

justsayswell (260) - Mission, Kansas, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Tropical fruit in the nose-- pineapple, mango, passion fruit. Medium to full body. Taste follows, with lots of mango/pineapple juice, peach and a hint of malt followed by hoppy bitterness in the finish. Itís hard to believe there was no added fruit. A showcase for the wonder of hops, and a supremely nuanced and drinkable IIPA.

Can at THT thanks to me and Santa bytemesis. Hazy golden with white head. Massive tropical fruits up front, some lime, marmalade, mango, pineapple, lychee all the works. Thereís a nice sugary sweet maltyness underneath, with some biscuits too. Thereís also a lot of dank marijuana and some resin here. Medium sweet and bitter. Over medium bodied. Lovely stuff.

SG111 (981) - New York, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Canned 02/02/16, 8% ABV. Pours hazy straw/orange. Aroma is just bursting with peach, mango, pineapple, bit of resin, bit of dankness. Really good. Wow, flavor is juicy mango, tangerine, apricot, peach. Absolutely brilliant. I expected something good, and I got it. This is excellent. Slightly floral, slightly earthy, pine and hops come through, itís just all there. Decent mouthfeel, nothing insane, but very pleasant. Great beer.
