Notes / Commercial Description:
We originally brewed Just Drink It, Dummy for our tap takeover at Emporium Arcade Bar in Wicker Park as a one off, but we really dug the beer (it's a double IPA with sorachi ace hops) so we decided to make more! The label "art" comes from "Strong" Mike Schallau. Puns puns puns....

Pours a bright golden orange and looks mighty fine in the sun.

Caramel malt, lemon and orange zest and some pine.

Light lemon zest, spicy hops, and a floral finish make this a nice summer time brew.

Mouthfeel is bold with a bitter finish.

Overall another very solid DIPA from Pdubs.

22 oz. bottle, no apparent bottled on date present, "Batch # Don't worry about it" on the label. Bottle lists an 8.00% abv. The label is pretty minimal in comparison to their usual fare.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a nice burnt sienna orange colored body. About two fingers of fluffy frothy white head that leaves behind nice thin lacing. Looks very nice.

S - The aroma is nice, but differs from the usual Pipeworks DIPA fare. The aroma on this one is lighter, with a woodsy, slight toffee / vanilla like smells creeping out. Lightly grassy & musty.

T - Taste is the same - a very woodsy, caramel / vanilla / toffee forward beer. I'm not sure if it is the Sorachi Ace hops, or if the beer has fallen off from being where ever it was for the past three months. Either way, it is still delicious.

M - The feel is typical of the style, especially for these guys I would say. Not the usual resinous / piney hop bitterness though. Smooth & creamy. Easy drinking for the moderately high abv. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, an interesting DIPA from Pipeworks, but it is definitely not my favorite. I would much prefer any of their other IPA's or DIPA's that I've had within the last year. I wish I could get my hands on some of the Pipeworks Attack Of The Devil's Lettuce, though.

Pipeworks Just Drink It, Dummy! ---4/5.

22 ounce bottle into a snifter. Bottled 8/19/16, had 9/25/16.

Pours a bright orange, somewhat cloudy, with a one inch foamy head, fair amount of soapy lacing. The smell is a generally citrus aroma- orange, lemon, some lime, some resin, yeast, light malt, a little funk underneath. The taste gives up a lot more lemon and orange than the nose, some lime and mango, some resin, yeast, malt- lighter than the usual PW DIPA, a hint of dill. A good amount of hop bitterness throughout. Smooth, crisp, refreshing, a solid but lighter than usual body for PW, well carbonated.

Really good flavor, I really like the Sorachi Ace hops. Not as intense as many of their double IPA's and not as fragrant as I expected, but the more I drank, the more I liked this. Well balanced between the hops and malt. Well worth a purchase the next time it comes around.
