Notes / Commercial Description:
Fresh from an overseas adventure, the delightfully intrepid duo, Bunny and Bird, have teamed up to brew a splendidly hoppy English IPA with a crisp and clean English ale yeast. The brew is packed with an intriguing combination of juicy, tropical Australian Galaxy hops, and grassy, vinous German Hallertau Blanc. It's a positively tip-top combination that The Bunny and The Bird hope you will enjoy. Cheerio!

Floral in the nose, bitter with a little fruity hoppy sweetness tucked into the flavor. Very well balanced.

A: Dark burnt orange with a nice two finger head with great lacing.

S: Smell's like fruit loops. Strong berry, mango, grapefruit, then fades into a beautiful white wine. After that you get the nice malt character with some of the English yeast character. Really love this aroma, smells like candy!

T: The taste reminds me of the aroma fruity, and juicy. Then you get the nice Nelson white wine character. Nice bready English character and yeast character.

M: Crisp mouthfeel. Medium body with some sweetness but nice. Really drinkable beer.

O: Another amazing DIPA from Pipeworks, would love to see this to get more again sometime!

22 oz. bottle, Batch #379/382 printed on the label. Another new IPA creation from Pipeworks, with more awesome bottle art. Some interesting hop varieties used here, so needless to say, I'm pretty excited.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a nice bright burnt sienna orange with just over two fingers of creamy frothy khaki head. Leaves behind some semi-decent spotty lacing.

S - The smell is fruity, hoppy, floral, and tropical. Mango, papaya, grapefruit, berries, clean alcohol fumes, mild soapiness. A very lovely aroma.

T - The taste follows the nose - bitter, fruity, juicy. Grapefruit, passionfruit, mango, some berry flavors that I can't identify, lightly grapey. Very fresh, juicy, and tropical tasting. The high 9.00% abv is hardly noticeable at all. The bready English malt is in play, but the hops steal the show.

M - Feel is crisp, smooth, and clean. Mild bitterness. Extremely drinkable.

Overall, another delicious DIPA from Pipeworks, but I think that goes without saying most of the time. I would definitely have this one again, and I highly recommend it.

Cloudy orangey marmalade pour with off white head. Aggressive pour puts on a dazzling cascading carbonation show. Neat uprush producing the hoppy head.

Difficult to nail down any fruit but the medley is there. Hop spice, biscuity and somewhat 'danky', thats if we're going English here-pinkies up!

Malt serves up first and ebbs well to introduce a wonderful peppery hop spice. Touch of caramel and burnt sugar. Rich resiny pine. Again I'm having a difficult time in the game of Name that Fruit-but it's there.

Medium and creamy. Very luxurious.

I'm impressed with the richness provided. I can only imagine supremacy if rye were added to this. This is well balanced and a pleasure to spend time with. A lot of times I'm one and done or been there-done that, but this I'm going back for. Maybe I'll get the name of that fruit later. Outstanding indeed!
