Ninkasi Tricerahops

CIMG1054

As said previously, Ninkasi doesn’t say much about what’s actually in their beer. I do have to admit that I am a big fan of them, and this is one of the first beers that I’ve tried of theirs

Stats:
Imperial India Pale Ale. 8.8% ABV. 100+ IBUs. Oregon.

Light golden color with just a little bit of head on there. And this is just loaded with sediment, stuff floating all over the place.

Super hoppy on the nose, as you would expect. A ton of grapefruit on this one, actually pretty citrusy, east-coast styled. There is a floral component and a hint of sweetness. Nice nose.

Medium bodied with actually pretty low carbonation.

Lots of grapefruit and citrus up front, also get some blueberries. Floral notes and peppermint on the back. Good bitterness, not off-balanced or over-bearing. No alcohol presence.

This is everything a good Imperial IPA should be, so check it out! 91 points.
