Notes/Commercial Description:
This IIPA, the latest addition in our hop-highlighting NvU Epic Battle series, has a bright, fresh hop aroma, and a subtle bitterness, that has us all talking about how crushable this is. (DISCLAIMER: Please do not actually crush beer while still in bottle and cap is still on. It will hurt…not that we know) Drink early, drink often.

Appearance is slightly cloudy and a rust orange.

Smell is a hop punch to the nostrils, very pungent.

HOPS!!! Now this is a tasty beverage! Citrus, slight malt to balance, just great.

Mouthful of hops!

Overall a mf'ing hop bomb and a gd palate pleaser.

I'm impressed with how consistently Pipeworks nails it. While I have to admit I'm a bit new to the single-hop scene, Pipeworks' brews keep me wanting to explore it more. This is a delicious, full-flavored, yet well-balanced beer. I love the unfiltered look - a cloudy orange brown. Scent is explosive and consistent with taste. A mix of citrus fruit. There's a slight maltiness but perfectly balanced. The mouthfeel is less dense and oily than a lot of DIPAs, but it's pleasantly creamy, which makes it dangerously yet delightfully quaffable for a Imperial beer.
