Ninkasi Spring Reign
Ninkasi Spring Reign is an American Pale Ale. This is my first Ninkasi beer that wasn’t some sort of collaboration. Thanks to Jeff for sharing some of the Northwest beers his brother sent his way!
The appearance is a little cloudy, but it does have a nice golden orange color. The aroma at first was simple typical pale ale, but after a few more whiffs I started getting a very nice tangerine note mixing with some spicy hops. The taste brings in dry cracker, sweet sugar in the middle, then a dry finish. There is a nice earthy and very floral quality that you get throughout the taste.
This is a very solid Pale Ale, something I might have passed on at the store if it wasn’t shared with me.
