Pours a transparent golden straw yellow with a thin layer of off-white foam and leaves sticky lacing.

Huge tropical and citrus fruit aroma, candied malt, and very sweet.

Orange, mango, melon, guava, resin, and biscuity malt.

Medium-bodied, light carbonation, tropical and citrusy.

Overall, this isn't pdubs' greatest achievement, but at 10% abv, it's crushable.

22 oz. bottle, Batch # 750/751. The latest Pipeworks DIPA creation, this one brewed with Mandarina Bavaria hops.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a juicy orange body. A finger of thick creamy off-white head that falls to a frothy ring. Lots of sticky strands of lacing.

S - A fresh, fruity, floral, and lightly soapy aroma. Invokes notes of oranges, orange rind, and a bit of a white grape flavor also noticeable in the background. Pale / crystal type malts become more apparent as the beer warms. Some very minor alcohol fumes might be distinguishable.

T - Fresh, fruity, floral, and creamy. A nice subtle orangey / citrus / rind flavor imparted from the hops. Very herbal, dirty, and earthy tasting also. Good bitterness.

M - Extremely smooth, creamy, and easy drinking, especially for the high abv. Medium-bodied, excellent carbonation.

Overall, another excellent DIPA from Pipeworks. I look forward to many many more takes on this beer.

Pipeworks Mandarina -----4/5.

22 ounce bottle, batch #750/751, into a Pipeworks snifter.

Pours a bright golden yellow with a small, quickly dissipating head, not much lacing. Big citrus blast at first pour, orange and grapefruit. Also some hop mustiness, some malt and yeast, a bit of pepper as it warms. Smells good. Taste follows the nose with the big citrus, leaning more toward orange, still a bit of dank and must. Good amount of bitterness front and middle, the malt hits on the back end, tempering the bitterness. Smooth, refreshing, solid body.

Another strong single hop entry from PW, very flavorful and enjoyable. Certainly worth a purchase.

22ox bottle poured into 2 sam adams pint glasses. Tall white head with fantastic retention and leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Pale yellow transparent bodied beer. Loads of orangey hops in the nose and flavor. Hint of bready malt, but this is surprisingly hop forward even though it has low bitterness level. Has a nice juicy hop quality and is absurdly drinkable at 10% abv beer that because it is drinking like it is 6% abv beer. I would like to snag another bomber or two of this brew, but it would be even better if Pipeworks selected this brew to go into cans. If you dig those orangy hops this is for you! Another awesome ninja series DIPA.
