Notes/Commercial Description:
We had a single open spot on the schedule and told BeeJay he could brew whatever his little bearded heart desired. The result of his labors (and what some professionals call insanity) is BeeJay's Weirdo Brown Ale. We asked him what he wanted to hop it with and he just kept yelling "ALL OF THE NESLON!" We obliged him and the result is a delicious hoppy imperial brown ale with lovely aromas of tangerine, passion fruit and grapefruit. Don't sleep on this guy, it was a very small batch.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Dark brown in color. Forms a moderate sized tan colored head. Good retention. Excellent retention.

S: Aroma is an odd mix. Passionfruit, grapefruit, coffee, caramel malt, dark fruits.

T: Okay, the taste is equally as odd, but it works. There is an appreciable moderatelt sweet caramel malt backbone. Nothing too strong, but it's there. Then it turns fruity and the flavors lighten up considerable. Passion fruit, lemon-lime, grapefruit, Sprite, and herbal-pine.

M: Medium bodied...lighter than would be expected. Heavier carbonation. Light-medium bitterness.

O: Weirdo brown. This needs to be a style.

Pipeworks Beejay's Weirdo Brown Ale

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a CBS snifter. Served chilled...

A) Brown brew with a little red tint when held to light. Nearly a finger of soapy head. Settled to a wispy dusting. Nice lacing.

S) Earthy, woody, some citrus. There is a little toffee sweetness. Some spices and some light alcohol too.

T) I like what the Nelson Sauvin hops are doing with the flavor. Nice malty toasty flavors, with spicy, earthy hops. A little citrus too. Bitter finish... The 9.5% ABV is noted as well.

M) Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Bitter finish that is slightly dry. Some alcohol warmth.

O) A very unique brew that really grew on me with each passing sip. Definitely worth a try.

Reviewed on 3/11/14
Poured a bottle , batch 314-315, into a darkness snifter.

Appearance: Pours a light brown. Darker in the glass with an amber color and honey like. Large 1 inch head. Fast " cool down " with no lacing left behind.

Smell: Honey, sweet malts as soon as I opened the bottom. From the glass I smell a sweet drink like syrup. Vanilla notes. More vanilla bean notes.

Taste: some bitterness, citrus notes , honey, velvety and nutty. Some grass notes. As it warms some pine and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: nice carbonation , light on the mouth , refreshing feel. Dryness at the end. Slight alcohol burn at the end but enjoyable. Leaves a slight tingle on the tongue.

Overall: a huge favorite of mine from Pipeworks. Original batch was slightly better and only wish I took notes. This batch so slightly more bitter and less sweet. Don't let this part fool the review. This is a great beer. Yearly release per se. Second time they brew it in just under a year. If it's still on the shelve for the locals , scoop it one up or two. Good for aging.
