look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle poured into Darkness stem.

A- Dark golden orange color with very small white head and quite cloudy as well.

S- Tropical fruit and dank hops balanced out by quite a bit of Belgian yeast. Nose on this is very well balanced and hopefully the taste follows this lead.

T- Citrus, and tropical fruit yet dank hops. The Belgian yeast really helps to take the edge off the hop flavor and also adds a nice spice. Slight banana flavor in there as well and finishes quite rich and robust not overly heavy though.

M- Medium bodied rich in feel lingers on the palate a while after sip. Dry finish really nice. Pretty low carbonation and makes this very drinkable.

O- Fantastic, well balanced Belgian style IPA. Not overly hoppy or yeast heavy. Another great offering from Pipeworks it seems they really impart nice dank hop flavors in their ales. I have yet to be disappointed in one of their beers. Cheers.

Thanks to YYZ for sending this bottle as part of the Epic NFL Confidence pool! Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Westbrook pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy deep gold with a finger's worth of white head with fair retention. Average visible carbonation.

S: Yeasty, with fruity esters (pear, apple, and a light clove), and grassy & citrus rind hops over a light bready malt.

T: Follows the nose almost exactly – fruity esters up front (with a touch of banana that I didn't get in the nose), moderately bitter citrus and floral hops with a bit of resin character as well. All complimented by nice light cracker malt base. Lightly bitter with lingering fruity esters in the hang, which lead to an impression of dryness.

O: Good amount of carbonation sensation, noticeable alcohol presence but not overly hot, and medium body.

O: This was pretty tasty, though not truly outstanding. This is a style that I think has a definitive ceiling, at least to my palate. The characteristics of a Belgian IPA don't always play well together, but this seemed to be as good as any of them. Recommended to try.

I have to agree with previous reviewers about this beer. They nailed it. Pours light amber with a 2 finger head that has great retention. Mouthfeel is great, medium bodied with lots of carbonation and lacing all over the glass that lasts all the way to the end. Nose has a nice hop presence, citrus notes. Some alcohol is also present but less than expected for an 8 % beer. Gorgeous looking beer, again the head on it is fantastic. At the end of the bottle it gets hazier to almost opaque.
This is an awesome beer that I'm glad I have one more of. Great job PipeWorks
