Ninkasis Single Hop Series is a project to experience the unique characteristics of select hops and the individual flavors and nuances they impart. By using a standard malt selection, we have designed an elegant framework to showcase different hops. Each beer in the series is named for the hop in use and lends itself to a deeper understanding of the featured varietal.

Cultivated in Huell, Germany, and available to brewers in 2012, Mandarina is an aroma hop known for its distinct tangerine and citrus flavors. This beer is balanced by a crisp pilsner malt aroma, making it the perfect way to sample the unique characteristics of this fruity hop.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Poured from tap to glass. Honey straw hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is clean with floral, citrus, straw, clean (Pilsner like) esters. Mouthfeel is refreshingly balanced with a light body and great carbonation. Taste is clean and dry with slightly sweet initial and a balanced hop bitterness and CO2 bite in the finish. Slightly metallic aftertaste. Overall, this is a refreshing light bodied brew that would be great for an almost session beer.

after4ever (7654) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Draft at sb. Pours a clear burnished pale gold. Loose white head and light lace. Earthy orange rind and pith nose, surprisingly deep earth notes along with the fruit. Almost smells like a hot dirt road after a spring rain. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel with bright orange peel and deep earthy hop notes on the mid palate. Mild orangey finish.
