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.

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.
