REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Poured clear golden-orange into a pint glass. Lots of tiny bubbles and an off-white head. 4.25/5
Smell (25%): Refreshing citrus and slight floral notes. 3.75/5
Taste (40%): A combination of floral, citrus, malty, and slightly dank characteristics. A bit bitter on the aftertaste, and dry on the tongue. 3.75/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied with slight carbonation. Dry on the tongue. 3.75/5
Overall (20%): A good to decent IPA. I frankly bought it more because it was a special release, and it was a good IPA for what it was. This simply did not stand out when compared to the many IPAs I have enjoyed over time, and frankly, I have had better IPAs from Ninkasi. This was just fine to me. 3.75/5
Final Weighted Rating: 3.775/5
