“Maiden The Shade – Specialty Ale” from Ninkasi Brewing Company (Eugene)

As you pour, aromatic, floral hops hit you like pungent freshly picked flowers. As you guzzle, well-defined (but not overpowering) bitterness joins sweet, fresh hops within a juicy, enlivening tide of quasi-IPA benevolence. Yet another formidable and potent (6.8% ABV) mutation of grains and yeasts from Ninkasi. It’s a limited release, so drink it while you can.

Grade: 9/10
