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.

22 oz. bottle, with Batch #540 printed on the label. Finally getting around to trying this one from Pipeworks, this one an imperial red ale.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a dark murky brownish-red with some slow carbonation streaming topside. Two fingers of frothy tan head. Leaves behind some good scattered spotty strands of lacing. Looks very nice.

S - The aroma is pleasant and fresh - creamy, with earthy red malt presence, and some bitter piney resinous hop presence.

T - Taste is pretty nicely balanced - malty, herbal, lightly bitter / resinous.

M - The feel is extremely smooth, creamy, and easy-drinking, especially considering the 9.00% abv. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, another excellent beer from the masters at Pipeworks; this one might be my favorite red ale of theirs that I've yet tried. Extremely smooth, and very well-balanced. Highly recommended.

Pipeworks Blood Of The Unicorn -----4/5.

22 oz bottle batch 310/311

Decent imperial red. Batch 310/311 is probably a bit old by now (10/15/14), still pretty good.
