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.

22oz bomber into a FW tulip. Batch 169 hand written on side.
Pours a dark cloudy copper color with a nice inch thick white head. The smell is very intense with tropical fruit and new zealand hops. The taste is also very sweet and fruity, bordering on too sweet but not quite there (something hoppy this way comes would be an example of just too sweet of a beer for my liking.) Tad of bitterness on the end but the tropical fruit really dominates the palate here. Sweetness is a bit high so the drinkability isnt huge for me, but its still quite good. Medium bodied, mild carbonation.
Overall a pretty good IPA from pipeworks. Fans of sweet IPAs will dig this one more.

My one complaint about this beer was when I took it out of the box, the cap was loose. Of course, this caused the bottle to de-pressurize. For that, I give Pipeworks a frowny face.
Appearance - The beer was a handsome copper color with a white head. Lacing was noted on the sides of the glass and sediment was present in the glass.
Smell - A definite pine aroma was dominate. On closer review, one may detect the citrus.
Taste - On the initial taste, one detects the pine and the citrus. Spicy grapefruit and orange were noted. As the beer wanes into the aftertaste, one notes the piney resin that continues to a sustained assault on the tongue.
Mouthfeel - A nice level of thickness allows the taste to linger. The citrus notes are downright abrasive on the sides of the tongue.
Overall - Unicorn's Revenge was enjoyed in a bottle share with Stone's Enjoy by. Unicorn was the consensus winner. This is a tasty beer.

1 PINT 6 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass
Batch 169 7.16.13
A - This beer is opaque with an orange center surrounded by sunset highlights. It was topped with a couple inches of off-white head.
S - When I popped the bottle I got some good citrus aromas. Once I poured it I smelled a sweet caramel, piney mess. The sweetness and pine were not complimentary.
T - I unfortunately get some bready malt. I was hoping for a glorious hop check to my 'buds. I get some pine in the aftertaste.
M - This is a thick IPA. That is good.
O - I can't believe this beer would fall off this much in just under two months. I had the Citra Ninja much fresher and got some of the same sweetness. I would like to try it fresher. I loved the Ninja vs. Unicorn. The other two mentioned were a disappointment.
