3.58/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

22 oz. bottle, with Batch #357/58 printed on the label. Yet another new DIPA creation from Pipeworks, expectations are moderately high based on this knowledge. My bottle lists a 10.00% abv.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a bright juicy golden orange colored body with about a finger and a half of fluffy creamy off-white head. Very bubbly with some nice scattered sticky lacing. Looks very nice.

S - Smell is comprised of dirty herbal hops - pine, grapefruit, mango, soapiness, and some underlying honeyed bread malts to round things off. Lightly tropical.

T - The hops aren't as dominant on this one as much as the others, but it is still nice. Dry, bready honeyed malt seems to take center stage, though. Herbal pine, mango, grapefruit, papaya fruitiness is in play. Lightly soapy / creamy. Again, lightly tropical, but more bready than anything, I would say.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy, with bready dryness on the finish mixed with some subtle hop resins. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, it is sadly not one of Pipeworks' better offerings in comparison to their other DIPA's, but it is still a nice beer. High 10.00% abv is extremely well-hidden, like most of their offerings. Worth a try but it pales when compared to some of the others.
