Pours thick and cloudy, bright sun yellow, but yikes that's a lot of sediment.

The aroma is a combination of lime and orange zest and some smokiness. Not sure what that's about.

Flavor is, well, like a Margarita. Not that great though.

Mouthfeel is thick and resinous. Overly sweet, that's why I don't like margaritas to begin with.

Overall, this smells fantastic and drinks just like a margarita; However, you obviously have to be a margarita fan to enjoy a margarita beer and I am not.

22 oz. bottle, with Batch #445/448 printed on the label. Another new interesting pale ale creation from the geniuses at Pipeworks; this one a "meow-garita inspired pale ale brewed with agave nectar, smoked wheat, lime, orange zest, & salt". The premise sure does sound interesting, to say the least.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a cloudy hazed golden yellow colored body. Two and a half fingers of foamy white head that leaves some decent lacing. Appears adequately carbonated with some bubbles rising up from the etching at the bottom of the glass. Looks very nice.

S - The nose is comprised of grainy / husky qualities from the smoked wheat, but the smoke itself is fairly light. Acidic and citric from the lime and orange zest used.

T - Taste follows the nose - grainy, wheaty, & citric. The smoked wheat is present, but the smoked part isn't really distinct. The lime and orange zest are more apparent players. I'm not entirely sure what agave nectar tastes like, but I'm sure it is in there. There is a light dryness on the finish that might be the salt, but it could also just be my imagination.

M - The feel is crisp & clean. Smooth & creamy. Lightly sticky, citric, and dry on the finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, another unique and inspired beer from Pipeworks. These guys are constantly creating interesting and delicious beers, and this one is no exception. The high 9.00% abv isn't noticeable at all.
