Got this in a trade after requesting Pipeworks as a local choice. I assumed I would get the stout selection because I've heard good things. The beer smells nice and hoppy like it might be a kick in the mouth. Much to my surprise the hops go extremely well with all of the flavors. It has a nice sweet balance to even out the hops and make it an almost creamy mouthfeel. I think this beer is the perfect ABV. Staying away from seeking out a 10% ABV double IPA did this beer well. Pipeworks continues to impress. Cant wait to try some more from them!

For a Double IPA, I found this to be very subtle. The smell would have led me to believe that I was going to get hit in the face by a heavyweight prize fighter, but it was much more mellow. Maybe I'm a sadist, but I like getting slapped around by hopes every now and then. Very good beer overall.
