This is a fierce and definitely aptly named brew. To say it is "focused" is an understatement. Killer hops and citrus in the nose actually made me reel back a bit, awesome. Pours dark and menacing for an IPA, like it has bad intentions. Tastes like it smells, explosive bitterness without the slightest attempt to temper it. This is a totally unbalanced, grizzled beast that intends to cut me, and I think I will allow it. Ninkasi is a super creative brewery, and my first thought is this brew is very one-dimensional by their standards, but the more I get into it I feel like this is so straightforward that it defies the norms for high-end IIPAs. Bears no resemblance to their regular IPA. In your face.

Bottle, shared by Cole, thanks buddy! Pours medium to dark amber, thin off-white head, poor lacing. Nose is gentle orange, mild pine-hops, caramel malt, candy? popsicles? Odd. Flavor is very well-balanced between sweet and bitter, but the flavors come off confused and muted. A surprise miss, which is a surprise as I normally quite like Ninkasi.

Beer #6 of IPA night in good old Lethbridge AB. This one thanks to Cole. Pours a copper colour with a small white head with some yeast sediment. The aroma is sweet and slightly hoppy. Sweet fruit candy (like red jube-jubes), spice and apples on the noes. The flavor is sweet like the nose lets on, like a candy beer. Very fruity and a piney bitter finish. Meh

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2010
like nice redish colour suspended sediment. Nice hop aroma but a bit dull . Flavour is not nice very thick and yeasty tasting it almost tastes like human sweat I like the little snipir about the Sumerians butcall in all it is sweaty and a bit malty. Not a great IPA. It is very hoppy but still not very impressed.

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2010 Bomber. Amber, short head, no lace. Malty nose, body and finish; whisky, brandy, dates, strawberry jam; faint hops. Faint licorice aftertaste. Medium to light body, slightly oily, flat, sweet more than bitter - surprising for a Double IPA. A decent beer, but not a DIPA. May have been stored unrefrigerated.

Pours cloudy, head dissipates quickly. Hoppy, citrus aroma. Taste is very intensely hoppy, citrus notes are very apparent as well. Wonderful double IPA.

Jammy orange and doughy bread aroma. Bitter aroma is only released after swirling the glass a bit. Clear oranged amber. Strong biscuit malt, heavy earthy hops. Sticky profile, big all around, but the malt dominates and disappoints for the style, though the beer itself is good.

Such a phenomenal Double IPA. Strong aroma hits you no less than the full bodied flavor. I had this on tap at McCools by my house. They have a 2 pint limit, bummer. Its very bitter but balanced, in an over-the-top way. Smooth going down all the way to last drop.

Bomber pours cloudy amber with a good spot of dissipating off white head into a tulip. Aroma of grapefruit and lemon, lime, oranges (citruisy hop profile), caramel malts, seems dry just on the nose. Starts with bitter hops blending into floral sweetness with orange, lemon, herbs, grapefruit. Finishes with dry hops, pine, balanced by caramel malts. Smooths out as it warms. Silky but fuzzy mouthfeel with mid-high body and carbonation. Both rich and refreshing, lovely.

In the bomber bottle. Pours orange with a thin to no head at all. Has a strong orange citrus aroma. The palate is an intense hop burn with a super drying finish. The beer is so strong it is actually a bit painful. Dominant flavor is of sweet candy orange slices.
