3.8/5 rDev -2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Clear light amber in color. Forms a moderate-sized white head that sticks around pretty good, reducing down to a fairly thick surface coating. Some moderate lacing.
S: Aroma is quite nice and quite hoppy. Citrus and tropical fruit with a candied orange peel. Then a light note of caramel malts.
T: The flavor is nothing like the aroma. Flavor is heavy on the grapefruit and pine and is fairly earthy compared to the light, bright notes of the aroma. Lower malt levels.
M: Medium bodied. Moderate-heavy bitterness. Appropriate carbonation.
O: Yes, the name seems to be quite appropriate here. A well made, but rather ordinary, everyday IPA.

3.96/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
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.
