More from a press release:
Heart and Science is Ninkasi’s tribute to everyone in the Pacific Northwest who makes the craft beer industry great. Its juicy start with hints of citrus and tropical fruits plus a smooth, bitter, hoppy finish highlight the technical arts and heartfelt dedication of the independent craft beer industry of the region.
“We wanted to celebrate everyone who has escalated craft beer in the Pacific Northwest, from the farmers, brewers, suppliers, and fans,” says Ninkasi founding brewer and co-founder, Nikos Ridge. “This beer was so well-received during its seasonal run that it only seemed right to bring it back and brew it year-round.”
Ninkasi’s year-round lineup offers a full spectrum of beer styles, including the brewery’s first Flagship beer – Total Domination IPA – alongside Tricerahops Double IPA, Prismatic Juicy IPA, Hazy Domination Hazy IPA, Yours Truly Easy-Drinking Ale, Pacific Rain Northwest Pale, Oatis Oatmeal Stout, Pilsner Cold Fermented Lager, Brightberry Raspberry Lime Ale, and Dawn of the Red Red IPA.
