look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Poured into a New Glarus glass batch #143

A) cloudy, thick, head about 3 fingers with lots of lacing. Orange color and lighter on the side of the glass.

S) Skittles, very sweet and fruity, apricot, peach, mango. yeast too

T) Very fruity and sweet. Mango, apricot, candy, great tastes

M) Coats the mouth but doesn’t linger, smooth and thick.

O) Buy this beer, very good proxy or substitute for any 3F Imperial IPA without the 3F house ale yeast after taste. Well done Pipeworks well done!

4.26/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Pours a dark gold with an orange tint. Has a fluffy white head that lingers for a short time then leaves a small covering on top. Fairy hazy for an IPA.

Smell- Awesome smell. Very fruity. I get hints of pine and cherry with a good amount of grapefruit, mango and citrus, also some floral hops in the background. Very sweet smelling.

Taste- Fairly sweet with just a slight bitterness upon swallowing. Flavor is a good amount of mango and tangerine with a background of pine of floral hops.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, good carbonation. It isn't a bitter beer but it is fairly drying. As it warms it gets a bit of a sweet aftertaste that lingers weirdly.

Overall- Some different characteristics for an IPA, not overly bitter but still drying with some good sweetness mixed in. Lots of Mango.
