Poured into a Duvel tulip. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Bright, juicy hop aroma bursting with citrus notes like peach, pineapple and grapefruit. Some booze fume.

T- Actually on the lower end of the bitterness scale, there's just a pronounced citrusy hop flavor without the usual accompanying bite. Alcohol is noticeable but doesn't detract from the smoothness.

M- Tangy and bright with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- I would recommend this to someone who's looking for a high gravity IPA with more hop flavor rather than hop bitterness. Hits on all the right notes without wearing out your palate.

My first beer from Pipeworks and it is excellent! Pours hazy golden. Good balance of hops and maltyness.

Quite awesome. Just a tad on the sweet side for my taste but that's also a differentiator. Can be hard to find, but it's worth a purchase when you do find it.
