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.

This is an absolutely delicious hoppy red ale. Think a very hoppy version of great lakes Nosferatu. If you like imperial red's, and ipa's, this is a wonderful marriage of the two. If you happen to be lucky enough to see this beer on the shelf at your liquor store, do yourself a favor and pick one up.

This beer is Ruby red and pours a thick head that gives some nice lacing. You can smell the hops on this one and you will taste them too. very nice hop flavor that is balanced nicely with malts. It was a pretty full bodied amber with a thicker look and feel then most. Overall my first pipeworks beer but wont be my last props to them on this great beer.

Poured from badass labeled 22 oz bottle into a Half Acre
Tulip.

A- pours a dirty amber with a 2 finger off-white head. Small bubbles and blotches remain on the glass..

S- spicy, amber malts. Lots of pine and citrus. Smell is amazing!

T- sweet amber malt, nice amount of citrus, spicy and pine hops finish this beer.

M- medium body and carbonation. Nice smoothness throughout this beer.

O- wow! This might be my favorite Pipeworks beer to date. Smell is amazing and the and the taste isn't far behind.
