COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ka pow! Hop Ninja is an in-your-face West Coast double IPA. Hop flavors slice their way through a base of American 2-row malt kissed by caramel malt. Quadruple dry hopping with Simcoe, Amarillo, and Columbus creates an aroma that skillfully takes your olfactory senses hostage. A dry finish masks the sneak attack of 8.9% ABV.

On tap at Growler Guys, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, resinous notes, and residual light candied sweetness. Flavour is somewhat messy, with resinous hops, candied sweetness and caramel bread malt. A bit jagged, with a higher-than-desired sweetness. Not bad overall, but not what I hope for in a IIPA.

Draft. Huge trop hop aroma, esp guava. The Simcoe cuts the flavor from being too tropical. Instead, some honeydew and rind and some kiwi. Finishes with no hint of the caramel in the beer description; water cracker instead. Dry finish. Outstanding.

(En fût à O’Brien’s): Fondation résineuse imposante, quelques oignons doux, de la terre, chlorophylle et une pêche rongée par la sécheresse.

Draft at Beachwood. Aroma of mostly citrus and passion fruit, like that. Fruity taste of fresh hop, passion fruit, citrus and bitter peach. Solid dipa.

Cask at CaskDays. Pours clear orange some head and minimal lacing. Nose is dank and grapefruit. Flavours of fruit, dank, some grassy hops. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet. Medium sticky body with lively carbonation.
