3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep golden with a small head & some lacing on the glass.
The aroma is bright with some grassy/weedy hops, like weedwacking in the hot summer... that aroma... along with some citrus and a mild but more than I would prefer alcohol aroma.
The flavor is bright and full of herbal on citrus fruit hop character, it’s fairly dry and keeps the booziness pretty well in check.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark amber/ruby, with thin cap of head that dissipates to a thin ring. Little to no carbonation and some lacing. Nose is a rediculous amount of pinrapple with pineapple, pear, grape, tropical sweetness and hops. All fruit here. Awesome. Mouth is all grapefruit and tangerine. Some tropical fruits, but not a lot of sweetness. A lot of citra and Simcoe hops. A decent amount of bitterness.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A: Dark orange color, hazy with little sediment. Two fingers of creamy fluffy off-white / light tan colored head.
S: Amazing aroma on this. Pine hops, grapefruit, candy like fruit, mango, some dank. Hint of plastic.
T: A lot of piney grapefruit, floral. Some dankness.
M: Dry and crisp (love that) with some resinous hop bitterness and just a hint of alcohol warmth on the finish.
O: Love Pipeworks, Simcoe and Citra are my favorite Ninja’s so far. Love going to Binny’s weekly seeing what goods they come out with.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich and somewhat hazy golden amber with sandy tan head. Awesome nose, lots of spicy and peppery/zesty hop notes with some intense fruity tones and citrus rind. Some resin comes through with warmth and a touch of bready malt. Very spicy/zesty hop character in the flavor and on the finish with the alcohol accentuating that. Fruity notes with citrus and pine resin being dominant. Medium body with a bit of weight to it and spicy bitterness.

22 oz bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter. Batch #124
A: Pours a dark amber color with a yellowish head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin cap and thick collar. Sticky sheets for lace are left down the glass.
S: All simcoe, all the time. Piney and earthy with a little grapefruit backing. Some mild scallion as well. Sweet caramel malt balances it out.
T: Same as the nose. Sweet grapefruit with some earthy hops. Mild scallion on the very backend with some sweet bready malts.
M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation level. Earthy hops on the finish.
O: Full blown simcoe. Hits on all the levels and flavors you’d want from a beer like this. Tasty for sure.
