3.6/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark orange color with a foamy head.

Very interesting aromatics of guava, pineapples, spices and florals as well. There is something in the spices that isn't working for me though.

Full bodied with a very smooth feel. Nice depth with spices, guava and pineapples. The spice note is dominating here as well.

This isn't my favorite pipeworks. There is some spice that isn't doing it for me. It could also be that sorachi hops don't work for me.
