Appearance: A light copper color, slight tint of orange. Carbonation was pleasant throughout, around 2 fingers of head on the pour. Nice lacing on the glass with each drink.
Smell: These Pipeworks IPA's smell incredible. Similar to the Unicorn's Revenge without the off the charts potency, feels like the New Zealand hops in smaller doses. Such wonderful tropical fruit accents, undertones of syrupy pine, oranges, and lots of hops.
Taste: Some sour hops hit on the front, which quickly yields to a wonderfully palatable soft fruit backbone. Grapefruit, honey, citrus, and oh yeah hops. The finish is dry and really cleans off the tongue. Biting hops really make you remember this one. Could go down a little smoother, but no doubt is left behind with this IPA.
Mouthfeel: Sticky, medium to heavy body feel, doesn't feel like a small brewery's craft.
Overall: I've just been thrilled with Pipeworks. Continue to impress me with their products, especially their IPA's. I may have to stock up on some of this stuff and trade it off so the rest of the country can bask in the glory.
