I had this recommended by a local bartender in Kenosha, and wow was he right. Lizard King is absolutely delicious, and I'll definitely be having it again!

Pipeworks, now noted, after 3 beers for their pipe bombs of beers that pack more flavor and power at 6% ABV than nearly any other brewer, a Chicago prize.
a) Nice looking APA sporting hazed pear colored body with big head that rings and laces dots.
s) Big mosaic nose: Juicy, fresh herbal hops, pear, lemon rind, orchard.
t) Follows smell and bigger: Pear, lemon rind, melon, herbs, wood, cedar.
f) Packs like a bigger ale a great mouth feel, tho easy, clean, medium body.
o) A mosaic tiffany lamp with pear, lemon, herbal motifs. Big beer. Pipe bomb in a 16 oz can.

From a 16oz can:

Appearance: Hazy yellow, good head.

Smell: Slight fruity aroma.

Taste: Very nice mix of flavors. Fruity, berries, pineapple, dankness, tropical fruit. Finishes dry and grassy.

Overall: I got to try this last year at a White Sox game, but now MN has Pipeworks so I can review. Very tasty pale ale, nice blend of old school dryness/bitterness and new school tropical fruit and dank flavors. Yum!

Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a greenish hue. Smells of pine and prairie grass. To the tongue there are light citrus notes mainly lemon with a bit of wheat. Goes down smooth.

= Another great offering from Pipeworks. The color threw me off a bit but the taste more than makes up for it.

Bright yellow and hazy with a pillowy head. Leaves a decent amount of scattered lacing behind. Smells fruity with notes of citrus, pineapple and blueberry. The taste is very lightly sweet with citrus and blueberry flavors. There is a grassy hops flavor at the end that cleans everything up. This is a pretty tasty beer.

Look: cloudy, yellow-orange, small head, minimal lacing. Aroma: passion fruit, mango, some tangerine. Taste: much the same. The bitterness is very low. Finish: very short. Mouthfeel: medium bodied, creamy texture. Comments: where's the bitterness? More so, is there lactose in this?
