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.

3.81/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Batch 419. 22 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a bid 1 inch off-white head.

Smell: Big citrus and floral hops up front. Caramel malt definitely has a presence with sweetness complimenting the floral hops. Just a bit of alcohol in the aroma.

Taste: Floral hops are dominant here. Interestingly the malt is nowhere near as prevalent as the nose would suggest - I get very little caramel malt sweetness breaking through the hop-forward flavor profile. Some citrus and grassiness is in there along with the primarily floral profile. I'm not getting much of the Sorachi Ace - just an extremely subtle hint of lemon on the finish. Not much alcohol heat.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied for the style. Medium carbonation level.

Overall: Solid offering from Pipeworks, although they make much better DIPAs than this in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle
