Duuuuuuude. Wait what was I saying? Oh that's right. Doritos, like what if they grew on trees? Dud, if a Dorito tree fell in a forest, and no one heard it, I'd like eat the whole thing. Ever get insulted by what Netflix like suggests you would like? I don't want to watch Roseanne. Again.

Bomber bottle, I could find no bottling/freshness dating

Pours a nice dull shade of ruby/amber, medium haze, lasting khaki cap, leaves a coating film, ringed low sheeting and plenty of strands and bits of lacing.

Lime/citric infused nose, bright and pungent

Fruity, on the sweeter side of DIPA, citric with lime n grapefruit again shining through. Enough gritty hops to balance things out...densely flavor, brightly hopped, very solid DIPA. Nice night capper

Living in central Illinois, we don't have a lot of great local breweries distributing here. Pipeworks just recently started so I had to celebrate with a new bomber I haven't had.

Color is a little darker, but still a light amber/orange. It's a smooth beer with a lot of orange right from the top. Delicious and very drinkable.

Another awesome beer in the fish series. Pdubs is on point with their dipas.

The appearance was a hazy golden orange with a minimal head.

The aroma is an amazing mix of grapefruit, orange, stone fruits, dank herbaceous notes and pineapple.

The taste follows the nose along with some nice honey sweetness balancing out the hoppy citrus notes.

The palate is medium plus with a nice lingering bitterness that lingers well.

Overall this is an excellent beer that I would definitely get again.

L- Pours a slightly hazy, dark orange with a thin, white head. Little carbonation. Some white lacing.
S- Lighter citrus smell with orange presence. Malty smell that allows some honey tones to show up. Slight lemongrass.
T- A very smooth taster in which the blood oranges produce a more subtle citrus, and the honey mixes well with the malt backing and transitions in the piney hop perfectly. Extremely balanced. Bitterness that hangs around brings the orange and honey with it.
M- Extremely smooth for an IIPA. Drinks very easy even with the 9.5% alcohol
O- Very unique IIPA that is incredibly balanced and smooth. The blood orange continues to come out more as it warms.
