Appearance - The beer wasgden orange in color with a white head.

Smell - The nose was light was citrus notes and hops.

Taste - The initial impression includedmango, honey, and a spicy bitterness toward the back. The spice and citris overtones continue in the finish.

Mouthfeel - The beer had an exceptionally full mouthfeel that the carbonation struggled to penetrate.

Overall - It is not Pipeworks’ best IPA, but very solid.

Very passion fruit and lime like juice forward. Definitely a tart component in the middle followed by some hop bitterness. Very fresh and juicy/bitter with restrained malt profile. Alcohol hidden completely. The passion fruit puree is a bit overbearing for me but I could see this brew being balanced differently batch to batch.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours hazy with an amber hue and a one inch cap; shards of lacing hang around

Smell: Pineapple, orange and passion fruit with a hint of honey

Taste: Orange forward, with overripe pineapple building; the passion fruit adds a jammy bitterness; there are some mead-like honey tones that emerge, after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I found this bottle in the back of the fridge and it could well be a couple of years old; still drinkable but I will need to try a fresher version to rate this more accurately
