Beer added by: ThatsThatDude on 05-06-2014

We originally brewed Just Drink It, Dummy for our tap takeover at Emporium Arcade Bar in Wicker Park as a one off, but we really dug the beer (it's a double IPA with sorachi ace hops) so we decided to make more! The label "art" comes from "Strong" Mike Schallau. Puns puns puns....

Pours a bright golden orange and looks mighty fine in the sun.

Caramel malt, lemon and orange zest and some pine.

Light lemon zest, spicy hops, and a floral finish make this a nice summer time brew.

Mouthfeel is bold with a bitter finish.

Overall another very solid DIPA from Pdubs.

22 oz. bottle, no apparent bottled on date present, "Batch # Don't worry about it" on the label. Bottle lists an 8.00% abv. The label is pretty minimal in comparison to their usual fare.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a nice burnt sienna orange colored body. About two fingers of fluffy frothy white head that leaves behind nice thin lacing. Looks very nice.

S - The aroma is nice, but differs from the usual Pipeworks DIPA fare. The aroma on this one is lighter, with a woodsy, slight toffee / vanilla like smells creeping out. Lightly grassy & musty.

T - Taste is the same - a very woodsy, caramel / vanilla / toffee forward beer. I'm not sure if it is the Sorachi Ace hops, or if the beer has fallen off from being where ever it was for the past three months. Either way, it is still delicious.

M - The feel is typical of the style, especially for these guys I would say. Not the usual resinous / piney hop bitterness though. Smooth & creamy. Easy drinking for the moderately high abv. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, an interesting DIPA from Pipeworks, but it is definitely not my favorite. I would much prefer any of their other IPA's or DIPA's that I've had within the last year. I wish I could get my hands on some of the Pipeworks Attack Of The Devil's Lettuce, though.

Pipeworks Just Drink It, Dummy! ---4/5.

Batch 583-584

Bomber poured into a 12 oz snifter.

Pours a soft and hazy golden color. Lacing nicely. Smell is all hop, lemon deliciousness. I really love this taste, lemon, dill, and coconut stand out. I feel like there is a nice malt base to this, but I can't focus on it because dose hops.
