22oz bottle from batch #129, poured into a Bell's snifter and quaffed today, 6/5/2013.
Aroma: Citrus and mango along with honey, caramel and toffee sweetness. I'm chasing a little bit of pine as well, so there might be a little bit floating around there. Strong nose, very dank. (4.5)
Colour: Pours a hazy dark amber colour with a small 1cm white head. Lacing is very sticky and the beer is otherwise sweet looking, like a sap or resin something like that. (4)
Flavour: Not bad, follows the nose but somehow it doesn't all seem to mesh together quite as well. So I get a good bit of grapefruit and ripe mango for sure, and the malt backbone is predominantly caramel and toffee. Seems to be a somewhat piney bitterness at the end, with a little bit of floral hop flavour in there. Lots of stuff going on, a complex DIPA but these actors don't seem to blend together quite so well. Still very delicious with a lot of things going on. (4.25)
Mouthfeel: Medium body, very well carbonated. Very resinous and sticky in the mouth, coating my palate in heavy bitter pine and floral hoppiness that sticks around for a good while. Its a bit boozy even when served chilled. (4)
Overall: Not my favorite DIPA from Pipeworks; I think I'm definitely a Ninja drinker. Perhaps I dislike complexity in my DIPAs, but even compared to other DIPAs I've had that use a ton of hops like Ephraim, it simply just does not come together all that well. Still, it's deliciously bitter and sweet altogether, so I can't really hate on this beer too much. Pipeworks DIPAs continue to rock my world. (4.25)

Hazy amber Orange color with a thick head with short retention, but leaving laces.
Nice aroma of sweet oranges, caramel and pine.
Caramel malty flavor with hoppy pine notes and bold on spices.
Full body with medium carbonation and tiny bubbles. Alcohol of 10% abv is well hidden.
Good DIPA, a bit too sweet, but this is the original sin of several representants of the style. It has a hop profile that is relatively not aggressive for a DIPA. Past maturity date, though.
