Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

Isn't that the title of some campy grocery store romance novel set in the Middle Ages? Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy sunset gold topped by over a finger of lightly cream-white foam. The nose comprises tangerine zest, light pine resin, soft caramel, and a touch of buttercream. The taste brings in more of the same, with some mild lemon zest finding its way in there as well. The body is a very light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly creamy feel. Overall, a pretty tasty beer, but I'd say it's closer to an American wit than an English IPA...

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours a hazy orange with a brownish-amber tint. Small, white head.

S - Quite malty, honey like. Biscuits, light hops, citrusy and zest. A scent of grape win as well.

T - initially very sweet. The grape wine taste is fairly strong. Hops are there, but in the background. It's a very interesting mix. I like it.

M - clean and crisp

Overall - I liked this one,and I admire the difficulty of this style. It seemed like it was lacking something though.

A - Dirty yellow orange with a small head and wisps of lace.

S - White grapes, herbal, tropical fruits, grainy malt, orange peel.

T - Herbal and citrus hops, orange zest, slightly vinous from the Nelson Sauvin, sweet malts and a touch of alcohol. The orange comes out as it warms.

M - Medium body with low carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel.

D - A bastardized version of an English Pale. Interesting. I like the creativity of the Pipeworks guys.

22oz, Batch #83 1/7/13
Riedel unmarked tulip

A: Cloudy dark yellow/orange like color. About a half finger of loose bubbles bright white head. Nice carbonation with tiny bubbles streaming up sides of the glass. Some lacing sheeting.

S: Definitely getting those Nelson hops, that white grape like wine-ish scent. Not getting the coriander but certainly some citrus and orange peel. Not much malt character.

T: Tip of the tongue, you get those Nelson hops and some pine like bitterness too. That white grape is certainly evident. You do get a touch of a spice bill that wasn't as pronounced on the nose, so maybe that coriander. That citrus sweetness comes through as well. Close is crisp and light and somewhat dry. Nice summer brew for sure.

M: It's a light medium, because of the nice carbonation.

Poured into a pint glass from a 22oz bottle.

Pours a nice hazy golden color with an awesome 1.5 inch pillowy white head. Qute dense and frothy and very sticky and with great retention.

Aroma start off grassy and fresh. Herbal and clean. There is some slight resinous pine notes but its mostly herbal notes. slight citrusy present. There is also a nice malty caramel backbone with some nice English style notes to it.

Flavor starts off with intense and interesting Nelson hop kick. Notes of herbal grass and hay with some slight grapefruit notes. Mild notes of tropical fruits such as papaya is also present. There is also a nice midl resinous note to the brew and it taste quite dank actually. The Nelson hops blend so well with the more traditional malt backbone. This features some slight caramel notes with a more bready and earthy backbone. That might be why it blends so well with the more earthy and robust hops. Mouthfeel is very crisp and slightly dry with a good bitter finish and a mild tartness that can be noted form the citrus note.

Overall, very impressed by this take on the EIPA. Pretty good hop choice for the malt body.

Second bottle of this, first was shared, this one is a solo effort. It pours a murky pastel yellow orange with a thin layer of foam on the surface. Looks more like a Witbier than anything. Some delicate soapy lacing forms as the glass is sipped. Head retention is average, it breaks apart on its own after a few minutes.

Brief fruitiness in the aroma, some citrus and banana, wheat and graininess in the back.
Medium bodied with a creamy feel, moderate citrus peel bitterness. Lightly spicy with some green botanical hop notes in the middle and the finish has a light dandelion bitterness present. As it warms a note of alcohol surfaces briefly before the lingering bitter aftertaste eclipses it. Comes off like an imperial Witbier/white IPA mashup more than anything remotely English in style. Not bad, though it didn't really make much of an impression either.
