Pours a brilliant sun yellow that is very cloudy and looks much like a mimosa.

This smells very citrusy and tar with a light wheat backbone.

Flavor is where this beer immediately falls off (IMO). Very very light too light. Meh.

Mouthfeel is like champagne with ground up chalk.

Overall it smells wonderful and looks marvelous but the taste is just alright.

22 oz. bottle, with Batch #446-447 printed on the label. A new golden ale from Pipeworks 'featuring Hallertau Blanc hops, orange zest, and coriander'.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a nice bright golden yellow colored body, lightly hazed, with two fingers of creamy fluffy white head. It leaves behind nice strands of lacing. Looks very good. Some yeast sediment comes out on the final pour.

S - The smell is lightly fumey / phenolic. Some grain / wheat, and some nice citrus elements from the orange zest. Lightly floral from the coriander.

T - The taste is lightly vinous / herbal / grapey, citrus orange zest, floral coriander, and lots of malt breadiness / yeast presence. Earthy, floral, citric, & yeasty. Very nicely balanced.

M - The feel is crisp, creamy, & lightly citric. Medium-full bodied, with good moderate carbonation. Very easy drinking for the high 9.00% abv.

Overall, a nicely executed beer from Pipeworks. Reminiscent in some ways of one of their previous golden ales, Pipeworks Nagami Equinox, although I recall that beer being a little better. Still, an interesting and delicious offering.

Pipeworks Dad's Best Boy ---4/5.
