22 oz. bottle served in a Bell's tulip. Batch # 54.
A: Pours a clear amber color with a light yellow head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thin film and ring that leaves soapy lace down the glass.
S: Big bursts of citrus. Orange flesh, lemon peel, and sticky grapefruit. Some sweet bread malts and a touch of bitter resin on the tail end. This smells ridiculously good.
T: More grapefruit in the taste than the smell. Orange and lemon peel with some alcohol bite to it. There is a definite warming, but the booze and warmth doesn't detract from the overall flavor profile. Some light bready malts with a little bitter green as well.
M: Medium bodied with a sticky and slightly oily mouthfeel, but it is surprising light on the finish with a high drinkability.
O: This is by far the best thing Pipeworks has pumped out. We all know hops are in their wheelhouse, but their use of the Citra hops really shined in this. Juicy, citrusy and pleasantly sweet. I'm sure I speaking for everyone that's tried when I say this has to be bottled on a consistent base.

Acquired in a trade with wesside89
A- Deep gold with orange hues. Looks dense and hazy from the bottle conditioning. Beautiful
S- Juicy Citra hops abound. Tangerine, orange, apricot, mango and a touch of honey
T- Bright flavors of the nose explode out of the gate before the bitterness sets in late. Not quite as dank as hoped it would be. Probably due to some age on this one.
M- Creamy, mid to full body. Soft on the tongue. Very little alcohol detected. Perfectly bottle conditioned DIPA
O- Really well done. Not a "wow" beer for me, but solid. Need to try again even fresher.
