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.

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.
