Poured from bomber into a snifter glass. (batch #309 1/23/14)

Appearance: Straight Copper, bone white puffy head.

Smell: Peppery dankness, also get some pine and citrus.

Taste: Resin and hoppy dank notes right away followed by some nice bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Very creamy on pallet but finishes dry.

Overall: Peppery vs. Sweet, Dank vs. Citrus, the Ninja vs. Unicorn is awesome. Not sure who wins but I don't care. Good job Pipeworks. Cheers!!

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A: Orange/copper with a nice head that lingers a bit, some nice lacing as well.

S: Really nice dank citrus notes upfront with some orange and pine. Really amazing smell.

T: Same as the smell a lot of citrus, pine, and some dankness . An easy to drink beer that I could drink all the time.

M: A perfect amount of carbonation. Slight alcohol taste but not overpowering, and not overly sweet like I like it.

O: Really enjoy this beer, have had it a few times now and always enjoy it. Love all the DIPA's.
