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.

A-Deep amber tow finger off white head that leaves some lacing.

S-Earthy dirt, good hop profile, some citrus that goes well with the caramel from the red ale base.

T-Starts with caramel and toffee. Then earthy notes with dirt and grass, mild citrus and bitterness in the finish.

M-Medium bodied with hop resins.

O-A decent hoppy red ale. Pipeworks hoppy beers are always worth a try.
