4.48/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Honey golden straw with tons of haze, its hard to see through for being so light in color.

Smell: This is my favorite part of this beer I think. TONS of floral hop scent are present with a sweet candy like bite.

Taste: Matches the smell, delicious.

Another amazing beer by Pipeworks. If these guys continue to put out quality beer like this local Chicago brewers will need to watch out!

Batch# 50

Bright with just a little haze, brass and light copper color mix. Nice head after the pour, just a thin layer of foam that seems to last for all 22 ounces. Almost no bubbling and modest, at best, lacing.

Citric and bright with a little malty and yeasty sweetness. Smells bitter and hoppy for sure.

Orange adnd grapefruit zest seems to dominate the palate from start to finish. There's "some" toasty, biscuity malts lingering here and there. There's some boozey heat and a little yeasty, fruity, dryness lingering here and there. This is a bitter sipper, that seems to offer nothing exceptional.

Warm palate, resiny, dry mouthfeel. A bitter sipper worth a try if you are a hophead.

I love bitter beers, but this IPA seems to lack a little more balance and depth for the style, not bad, but not something I plan on picking up again.

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

Bottle from buzze40, 650ml bottle into a tulip. Batch 50.

Browned orange, offwhite head. Mild retention and good lacing. Nose of citrus rind, big Belgian yeast character, some tropical notes, peach, nectarine, cantaloupe and some herbal and spicy notes. Taste has tropical fruits, melons, herbal hop character, medium spice character, and Belgian yeast finishes it off. Bitter well into the finish. Medium body, no alcohol, medium carbonation. A very nice American take on the style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22oz bomber poured into a snifter. Batch number 50.

A- Pours a hazy light yellow/ orange color with a half finger of white colored head. The head dissipates to some froth along the top and sides of the glass.

S- Lots of citrus and floral hops in the aroma. A faint sweetness is there as well.

T- Big hop hit off the front of the mouth. Pine and citrus are most apparent. Then comes the Belgian yeast. I get hints of banana in the taste as well.

M- Medium bodied, nice carbonation, bitter, dry finish.

A good representation of the style in my opinion.
