Notes/Commercial Description:
This epic battle is exhausting The Unicorn. He's been at it fighting all sorts of creatures, spirits, beings from other worlds and other dimensions. If there's one thing The Unicorn hates, it's sadness. If there's another one thing The Unicorn hates, it's exhaustion. It is time The Unicorn made all others regret the day, they began this epic battle! With an intense and unexpected juicy and floral combination that can only come with generous amounts of New Zealand hops.

22 oz. bottle, with Batch #551-552 printed on the label. Finally getting around to trying this member of the Pipeworks unicorn family. Expectations are excellent considering the source.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a murky burnt orange colored body with hues of red thrown in there. Two fingers of frothy khaki head that leaves behind lots of fat scattered spotty lacing. Looks nice for what it is, but a bit dark for a DIPA.

S - The aroma is of mild alcohol fumes, and some tropical citrus fruits - mango, banana, pineapple, grapefruit, oranges. Hoppy & piney, but it's missing that fresh juicy citrus qualities that I've come to love about Pipeworks' DIPA's.

T - Tastes more along the lines of what many Pipeworks imperial red ales have tasted like. Semi-boozy / hot, with some tropical fruit presence - mango, pineapple, banana, orange, white grapes.

M - The feel is smooth, creamy, and lightly boozy. Fruity, herbal, & bitter with some earthy red maltiness lingering.

Overall, it is not my favorite of the Ninja vs. Unicorn offerings from these guys, but I am glad to have tried it.
