Ninkasi IPA

Just tried this beer for the first time tonight. It's from a brewery up in Oregon, so I figured it would be good - at least that's what Oregon people always tell me. They take great pride in their beer. I was at BevMo today picking myself a father's day treat. I was deciding between this and my usual selection of fine Stone beers. I went with the new Oregon beer. Now, I'm usually not one to put down a brewery, but this was not my favorite. It did not have the hoppy flavor I have come to expect in an IPA. Tasted a bit like a full bodied Budweiser. I won't be buying this one again. Sorry Oregon!
