Excited to try this one. Pipeworks has a ton of great offerings, and this one has a lot of hype around it. 22oz bomber, batch 81, poured carefully into a Hopleaf Tulip glass. $10.99/bottle.
Appearance: light orange to golden. 2 fingers of pure white head. After careful decanting, no yeast in the glass and good clarity. Modest lacing, modest retention.
Smell: Over the top with citrus. Lemon, orange, floral, grass, some pine. Doesn't smell overly sweet, malty, or overly alcoholic.
Taste: Follows along the hop profile in the nose pretty well. Lots of orange. 20% wheat beer, tastes like even more. Lots of bittering hops added. A little touch of alcohol is noticeable.
Feel: Crisp, moderately carbonated, smooth, then sticky, and finally dry.
Overall: A really solid wheat-based DIPA. I would enjoy having this again. I probably won't buy it again anytime soon though, price point is pretty high. I had really high expectations, and was hoping this would compare to DIPA hall of fame beers like Pliny and Heady, but it's not at that tier. Still quite good though.
Serving type: bottle
