22 oz. bottle purchased from West Lakeview Liquors poured into a snifter.
A: Pours a beautiful deep golden amber with orange hues. Two finger bright white head, gorgeous lacing. This brew could not look more inviting.
S: Citrus, grapefruit, orange, and lemon notes with piney undertones
T: Clearly a DIPA that means to be reckoned with. Strong floral and citrus notes dominate upfront-orange peel and orchid. Transitions into a slight sweetness and a touch of malt. Finishes with a crisp, sharp hop bite with pine undertones that gradually relents into smooth silk.
M: Medium body that is very appropriate and completely adequate for a DIPA. Medium to lower carbonation, enough to gentle tickle the tongue and roof of the mouth beckoning you to partake in another mouthful. Silky smooth.
O: Impressed. Simply impressed. The other DIPA that Ninja vs. Unicorn reminds me of is FFF Dreadnaught, but lacking some of the complexity in the middle. Still, for me to even compare a brewery's first release to the complexity of FFF's Dreadnaught, one of the best DIPA's available in my opinion, is truly an accomplishment. That being said, Ninja vs. Unicorn is truly it's own beer. I had high expectations for Pipeworks--they were exceeded. Can't wait to see what they do with stouts!

A - Hazed orange gold with a finger of soapy white head medium lacing.
S - Tons of sweet peach, grape, papaya, slightly astringent, some dankness, sweet malt too.
T - Very very sweet malt, kinda boozy, lots of fruit flavor, peach and mango, sweet pineapple, a little melon.
M - Clingy sweet, bitter, very full, a little burn.
O - Very good aroma, flavor gets too abrasive as it warms up.
