Ninkasi Brewing Co. Total Domination

I would call this beer a good example of an introductory IPA. Just about everyone makes a double IPA these days so the enjoyment factor for the hopheads is usually a lot higher with the doubles. Making a really good “single” IPA may soon become a lost art with the standard of what is considered hoppy growing exponentially. This beer has a great balance of bitter, floral, and smooth, finishing with a warm breathe of booze. Word on the street is Ninkasi was purchased buy the corporate doucenozzels at Bud so congrats to the brewery owners but I half expect the quality of beer from the boys in Eugene to turn to shÎte but we shall see.  In the meantime, drink this beer often.
