Large, lingering, fluffy white head with some nice soapy bubbles. Brew is hazy (unfiltered) orange color. Lacing is present, but not admirable.

Aroma is very bitter! Caramel and apricot dominate. Bready and a standard IPA aroma.

Bitterness is very prevelent, sweetness is also right there with it, almost too much sweetness. Carbonation is nearing too much, but comes in a just right medium-high. Flavors are bland until the sip has passed and has been allowed to aerate..

A solid AIPA, but far from the best. It was a nice addition to a box from Vande, Thank you!! Recommended.

Batch 35 poured from bomber bottle into tulip glass. Hazy orange with nice head retention and lacing.

Aroma is sweet bread, orange, malty, with subtleness of hops. Reminds me of some Michigan IPAsin aroma.

Not sure what hops were used for bittering but its too earthy, resinous and dull with limited complexity. I pick up some sweet malts of caramel. Needs a different bittering hop and more finishing hops in late boil.

Mouthfeel is medium body, not clean finishing like some other IPAs.

I like Pipeworks overall but the hop bitter character doesn't work for me. Beer lacks a level of complexity. Maybe the barrier is too high these days. I'd pass on this one.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22 oz bomber poured into nonic pint glass

A: Orange-ish gold and clear, thick, smooth head that stands at 2 fingers and just stays, very nice head

S: A nice grainy sweetness come through in the aroma, no caramel, hops smell clean too, floral, pretty restrained

T: Much more bitter than the aroma let on but still not much in the way of flavor, still has that grainy malt backbone, no caramel at all though, hops definitely have a distinctly floral character, a little resiny as well, alcohol comes through easily too

M:Semi-thin and dry with no caramel, it needs a little more body

O: A very meh beer, nothing really stands out as a highpoint, but not much as a low point either. Lacks flavor, and that lets the alcohol show though too much.
