PIPEWORKS LIZARD KING IPA 6/8/18

The embarrassingly adolescent can art is nonetheless a colorful and flashy standout on the store shelf. Not why I bought one though.

Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Tree House stemmed tulip. No visible canning date.

a; Hazy gold with a finger thick white head which receded to thin surface foam and patchy lacing.

s; Light citrus leaning to lemon and tnagerine

t; Follows the nose over a biscuit malt base. Dry finish with more citrus notes.

m; Medium, good body and carbonation tingle.

o; An exceptional session IPA, bright and fruity, although that fades as it warms. A great choice for a summer refresher fit for any sort of king.

Bright, hazy golden color. Herbaceous, mango, berry, and grassy scents. Taste is bursting with a sublime resin-citrus blend, followed by a sweet and spicy blueberry finish. Mango, pine, and lemon zest notes, with a dank, herby aftertaste. Clean, full finish.

Found a 4-pack of these cans in NY. Kicking myself for not seeking it out when I lived in Chicago. A great single-hopped Mosaic brew.

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.
