What the brewers say

“Originally crafted with Ninkasi Brewing, this double IPA is the lightest, hoppiest beer you’ll ever try. Loaded with tropical and fruity notes from Mosaic, El Dorado, and Chinook hops.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Bright hops flavors with a healthy amount of mango, Thai basil, pine, grapefruit, and even a light anise character. I have a strong desire for curry after smelling this beer.”

Flavor: “Amazing unique and intense hops flavors that continue to display the Thai basil flavors from the aroma, coupled with a more pronounced fruity character of mango, pineapple, and grapefruit. A nice, light malt sweetness pairs perfectly with a prominent bitterness that adds to the herbal spice character. Dangerously dry.”

Overall: “Simultaneously one of the most unique and tasty big IPAs I’ve enjoyed in a long time. The unique hops profile coupled with a delicious base beer is wonderful.”
