look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

650ml bottle poured into a Pipeworks snifter.

The beer pours a nice honey copper color, hues of orange and gold, slight chill haze with a finger or so of foamy white head that has good retention but leaves little lace. The aroma is heavy on the lime, with grapefruit, wildflower and sweet malt and alcohol. The aroma is less boozy than the standard Pipeworks DIPA, which is a relief, but it seems to be lacking depth and complexity. Lime jumps out on the tongue, grapefruit is there behind it, wildflower, lemongrass that leads to sweet malt and alcohol. Lime and citrus really dominates here and some balancing pine would've been a nice touch. The body is lightly carbonated and coats the mouth well. It's fairly juicy and has a wet, sweet finish.

Verdict: An interesting take on the Ninja DIPA from Pipeworks, but the lime is really heavy and is quite dominant. A little more play with some pine and other resinous, darker flavors might have helped. I appreciate the lime taking center stage as it is the highlighted ingredient, but there really isn't much else here.

Batch 316/317 packaged on 2/4/14 drank 3/4/14
First Pipeworks beer and I was very impressed!!!

Taste is very dry almost like a saison. Sorachi Ace hops stand out. Low carbonation which I love since it let the flavors stand out. Almost get a faint Belgian yeast component which adds to the complexity mixed with the lime and citrus.

8% is well hidden. Would be a great summer beer. Could drink bottle after bottle.
