Seasonal Release Series. Spring forward with this refreshing seasonal ale. Notes of toasted malt up front with a bright and crisp Northwest hop finish. Its a session beer that everyone can enjoy.

Like many Ninkasi beers, this is an ale more than a specific style, though we put it in the Northwest Pale category. A light toasted malt flavor is more reminiscent of a British Pale, but the hops are bright and very Northwest. Flavorful and easy to drink!

Hazy amber,thin head. Piney citrus hop smell. Taste is pretty good, but a very tart and strong bitter tastes that almost ruins. Not sweet enough for my liking for a pale ale.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 23, 2010
22oz bottle. Rating #68. Slightly hazy medium orange with a little brown and an off-white head. A lot of toasted maltiness right up front which pretty much dominated any other aromas that may have been present. Slight bitterness and a bit more toasted malt, but it was not as heavy as the aroma, it also had a bit of citrus to finish it off. (1253)

22 ounce bomber purchased from BevMo in Natomas. Aroma is a bet spicy and peppery with hop notes present. Has some husky malt undertones as well. Not overly aromatic. Mildly hazy dark golden body with a pretty nice and frothy off-yellow head that is strong and leaves good lacing. Starts a little astringent with some spicy and peppery hops coming through. Has some chewy, husky toasted malt notes in the middle before more grassy, somewhat bitter, earthy hop finish. Easy drinking. Pretty good stuff.

poisoneddwarf (2476) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Bomber into shaker. Aroma is citrus-forward in a big way. A bit floral, as well. Pours a clear deep gold with a thick head that leaves nice decorative lacework. Taste is very bitter with very little malt sweetness. Carbonation is medium-low. Body is medium. Creamy mouthfeel. Bitterness lingers on the tongue long after the last sip. This is one of the bitterest beers Ive ever had. Not that thats a bad thing. Id rather have a bitter hoppy beer than a sweet malty one. Good beer.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Bottle. Opaque amber with some white head. Aroma is biscuity malt and an oily, flowery blend of hops. Flavor is the same, some mild sweetness up front that yields to resinous bitterness and a small amount of citrus. Oily finish.

hahobbs (6) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2010 does not count
One of the better spring seasonals I have tasted. Pours a vibrant, translucent red with perfect foam, and leaves a beautiful lace on the glass. First impression is unmistakable hop aroma, almost IPA-strength, but taste is smooth and crisp, not too hoppy. A refreshing and relaxing spring beer.
