I just got this bottle from a friend that went to chicago. Thanks Anil !! What a great beer. i popped the cap and smelled straight from the bottle and i knew this was going to be an awesome brew! i poured into my Lawson's finest liquid tulip. appearence is a cloudy amber/golden color. Smell is terrific, tons of juicy hops reminds me alot of port brewing style dipa. The taste is exactly what i smelled. Huge juicy hops, Alcohol is present but not over powering. the body and carbanation is perfect. This is my first brew from pipeworks and i will be on the lookout for more from them!

Thanks Zach for the bottle. Really fresh

Color- nice zesty dark orange

Smell- not overpowering with fruit, hops or malt but smell of a good amount of stuff going on

Taste- first sip was like, damn! Then again... This is just a terrific DIPA, I simply cant stop drinkingt it. No lingering malt or overpowering pine, just hoppy goodness that made the glass impossible to put down. I mowed through the bomber in minutes, and definitely felt it. Upon checking the bottle I noticed a double digit ABV. PW truly has mastered the art of masking abv. Well done!

Overall- another impressive brew by PW, keep it up!

Bottle (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, Hugonaut13!

Hazed copper with a creamy off-white head. Sticky, lined lacing down the glass.

Lots of melon (combination of honeydew and cantaloupe) in the aroma, along with some sweet citrus components. Enough sweet, bready malt backbone to balance things out. Quite nice.

Bitter and juicy grapefruit flavors combine with the melon found in the aroma. Some bread and sweetness as well. Very well balanced. A touch of an alcohol presence is there on the finish, but it's mild and not distracting.

Medium to near full in body for the style. Moderate carbonation. Very drinkable.

Fantastic Midwest DIPA.
