Poured from a 22 oz. bottle marked batch #92 into a Pipeworks Brewing Company branded snifter/short-stemmed tulip
Pours an orange-accented glimmering copper topped by a bright off white head. Average retention with hints of lacing. Tons of tropical and floral notes on the nose, pineapple, mango, and hints of caramel and some clean alcohol. Opens with passionfruit and lots of it, my favorite contribution of some New Zealand hop varieties. Blood orange, pineapple, papaya, and mango as well with a touch of caramel. Finishes with really intense citrus rind bitterness quickly rounded out by some more caramel accented sweet fruit notes. Big, full bodied, smooth and silky. Moderate carbonation. Unicorn's Revenge is an excellent DIPA/IIPA. This offering will satisfy the biggest hophead's craving, however it also displays much more balance than the previous release, Galaxy Unicorn. The New Zealand hop profile used here is wonderful. An excellent addition to Pipeworks library of excellent DIPA/IIPA's, however this one is among the heads of the class.

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.
