Notes/Commercial Description:
One of our original hop beasts of burden makes its whimsically triumphant return. Blood of the Unicorn is Pipeworks Ninja vs Unicorn's hot redheaded sister. Loaded with fruity and piney American hops this rouge equine always delivers.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A deep amber almost brown in color with 2 fingers of frothy off white head. Smells deliciously sweet like caramel and very floral and piney hop notes. The flavor is arable up front, slight toastyness, then a nice grapefruit/pine hop subtle ness. A very delicious sweet amber with medium body and medium carbonation. Definitely worth getting again.

4.06/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance:deep orange color tending towards red. Very hazy and opaque. A finger of a tannish head that fades to just about nothing

Smell:toasty and caramel malts. Not too sweet and pretty toasty. Citrus and resiny hops. Hop aroma is pretty strong. Good balance between strong malts and strong hops.

Taste: mirrors the nose exactly. A bit more citrus and resin though. This pushes the balance to hoppy.

Mouthfeel: fairly bitter but in a good hoppiness. Fairly sticky. Good thick body.

Overall: a well brewed imperial red. Nothing too special but it is tasty. Another well done pipeworks beer.
