RATINGS: 29   MEAN: 3.6/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.52/5   IBU: 75   EST. CALORIES: 216   ABV: 7.2%
Swift and silent, full of flavor. This skilled, shadowy master of IPAs will take you by surprise yet honorably leave your palate intact. Aggressive late hop additions tempered with a stealthy, fleeting bitterness make Shadow Ninja IPA a formidable and respectable beer.

fiulijn (19824) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2016
Draught at Hops n Headz, Bellingham, WA; 6.8% ABV
Hazy golden color, clean. The aroma has some musky hop, the malt flavor is indiscernible, with some residual sweetness, bitter and a bit resiny but not enough hop quality.
Mediocre IPA.

Sarlacc83 (2091) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2016
Tap at the brewery. A: Clear orange in color, thin white head. N: Grapefruit, biscuit, orange syrup, pineapple, some light pine, and earth. T: Good amount of bitterness, and a moderating sweetness. M: Medium resinous body, light alcohol burn, soft carbonation. O: Good IPA. Hits all the marks, but it certainly wont give you a new appreciation for the style.

maxwelldeux (4358) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a smallish white head on there. Nose is subtle, but has some really nice floral and fruity elements to it. Taste is moderately bitter and fairly light, but doesnt come off too crisp or fresh. Decent, though.

Big bold malt backs up huge hop aroma and oils. Notes of tropical and pine plus what tastes like a very well made english malt base. I hope to see more and more of these guys in the future!

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle:   Orange colored, faint haze, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Muted hop nose, very faint earth, even fainter vegetal aspect.   Not too bright, a touch pungent.   Soft hop bitterness on the tongue, dull and a bit dingy, seems to be of a pithy citrus kind.   Nothing about this one is bright.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with a muted hoppiness, light sweetness, faint citrus peel lingering.   Its like its crying out to be more citrusy, but its just too subdued and muted.   Not offensive, but just a bit boring.   Despite the slight vegetal big on the nose, it doesnt come across on the tongue.   Decent, but not one I would reach for again.
