Draft at Mels. Very good IPA; some sweet orange and steely fizz, with a pleasantly bitter finish. Aroma is a little dull. Ninkasi continues to impress.

bubbleflubber (2204) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Pours a translucent golden-orange into the glass with a nice eggshell head that diminishes to a thin ring of suds that leaves window-wash lacing. The nose of fresh, wet hops and pale malt. Flavors are well-bittered throughout the pull, of fresh hops, pine-like and woody. An abundance of pale malt lends a toasted cracker essence with lemon and pepper, finishing with a nice, appropriately lingering bitterness. Although for the "novice" and "experienced" hophead alike, the balanced citrus and bitterness makes for a nice pull. The body is medium-full with active carbonation to the palate, supplying a substantial and complex mouthfeel with a relatively easy quaff. A very nice example of the Northwest IPA style, staying pretty much true-to-form while appealing a wide variety of craft brew enthusiasts of varying "levels".
