Wow! Pipeworks has been getting ridiculous with the amount of beers they've been producing over the past 6 months. Honestly, even as a Chicagoan, I can't keep up with all the new pipeworks out however this is the gem of all the new brews released. I LOVE NINJA VS. UNICORN, however this barely beat it. Very wheaty, which I don't usually like, and hoppy but not too bitter because it had some ridiculous tangerine/pineapple taste in it as well. Pipeworks is on the rise people!

Galaxy Unicorn - Pipeworks Brewing
APPEARANCE: Pours a murky, hazy orange with golden peach hues. Unfiltered but not finding any sediment in the initial pour. Big sudsy off white head that stuck around for the long haul. Leaving nice lacing all around the glass as it slowly dissipated.
AROMA: Big burst of over ripe oranges, grapefruit rind. Followed by a tropical cereal like aroma. Almost like that Special K with the dried fruit in it. Tons of hoppy, floral notes with a slight spicy earthiness. Backend grassy, slightly catty. Very interesting and inventing bouquet on this beer.
TASTE: Wow I new the nose had fruit on it but the taste it's a tropical fruit bomb! Fresh, juicy, ripe tangerines, pineapples even a bit of berry flavor. Toasted warm bread with honey butter on it. For sure getting some heat from the ABV but I actually enjoy that especially when it's balanced out with the big bitterness from all those hops.
MOUTHFEEL: Medium creamy body with a nice medium carbonation. Nice lingering oily finish. Super drinkable for a 9.5%.
OVERALL: This was my first pipeworks beer I thought it was outstanding I really enjoyed the galaxy hops flavor profile. The addition of wheat was very interesting as well. I found that all the sweet fruits where balanced nicely and not over powering at all.
RATING: 4.5/5 Zombie Heads!
