big thanks to mjohnson17 for hooking up the pipeworks love (and yeahnatenelson for the pipeworks glasses!!!)

batch #53

a - brew poured a murky yellow orange with a thin bubbly head that fizzled away quick. could not see through it when held to the light.

s - nice fresh dank hops. good grapefruit and citric. hop dominated, but not a slam you in the face hop bomb.

t - the hopping in the nose is on the flavor, but more subdued. lots of other spices in there to balance things out. some orange peel and grape. very soft, but nice flavor.

m - good prickly carbonation. smooth feel, no bitterness from the hops. a bit like an ipa with some water added to mellow out the hop blast.

o - overall, really nice english ipa. soft and easy drinking with subtle hopping on the flavor and nice hopping on the smell. rather impressive.

A - Pours a vey hazy orange/brown with one and a half fingers of white head. Head has good retention and leaves some decent lacing.

S - Lots of juicy citrus, with oranges being most prominent. Faint marmelade aroma with a nice hop presence and some white grape. The coriander aroma is pretty subtle.

T - Interesting and enjoyable. Tastes a bit like a hoppy witbier. Very nice citrus taste, with coriander being a nice compliment. Seems to be a Belgian yeast presence, though I don't know if this is brewed with a Belgian yeast strain. Whatever it is, this is really tasty.

M - Medium mouthfeel with a bit of earthy dryness bitterness in the finish.

O - My first beer from Pipeworks, and I am impressed. This seems like hybrid of English IPA and witbier and it really works well. Looking forward to trying more from them.

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer pours a dense hazy deep yellow body with a tight bubbly white head that has strands of bubbles gently feeding it.

S- The green herbal hops and a dry coriander note give a nice full aroma

T- There is a vinous white wine quality to the green hops with a pine needle quality growing. The finish has a taste of grape skins and green hops and is just on the dry side. There is also some coriander notes that come through as it opens.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a tight fizz in the finish and an alcohol heat on the exhale after each sip.

O- This is an interesting beer and the hops make my tongue tingle a bit. The hop flavor is full with a lot of nice depth and no bitterness, making this very drinkable.

Second bottle of this, first was shared, this one is a solo effort. It pours a murky pastel yellow orange with a thin layer of foam on the surface. Looks more like a Witbier than anything. Some delicate soapy lacing forms as the glass is sipped. Head retention is average, it breaks apart on its own after a few minutes.

Brief fruitiness in the aroma, some citrus and banana, wheat and graininess in the back.
Medium bodied with a creamy feel, moderate citrus peel bitterness. Lightly spicy with some green botanical hop notes in the middle and the finish has a light dandelion bitterness present. As it warms a note of alcohol surfaces briefly before the lingering bitter aftertaste eclipses it. Comes off like an imperial Witbier/white IPA mashup more than anything remotely English in style. Not bad, though it didn't really make much of an impression either.

Poured from bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy orange/gold color with a foamy head.

Deep and pungent aromas of hops, navel oranges, Meyer lemons, some malts, a touch of caramel, and a variety of spices.

Med/full bodied with a really nice feel. Well balanced and complete with spices, navel oranges, hops and some caramel as well and some pine resin on the back end.

This is fantastic. Real good depth on both the aromas and flavors.

Bottle from jdhende, thanks bro! 22oz into a couple of tulips. Batch #37.

Murky orange juice, both in colour and apparent texture. Offwhite head that looks like some orange juice pulp. Interesting. Nose is fantastic, mango, pineapple juice and some grapefruit. Brilliant hop profile, very much straight up fruit juice. Taste has more tropical fruit and citrus juice. Pineapple and mango again, loads of Nelson Sauvin character. Bready/biscuity malt validating this as an English ale, with some light spice and malt sweetness. Minimal hop bitterness, it's all hop flavour. Medium full feel, almost pulpy texture. Crazy nose and flavour, a stand out for me amongst a whole load of recent beers I've tried.

Appearance- Cloudy Yellow-Orange tint with a 1-2 inch creamy yellow-white foam settling slowly to a solid light foam around the top of the beer. Bits of lacing left along the glass as consumed but not too heavy.

Smell- Tropical fruit smell immediately noticeable, then hints of white grapes and spices secondary.

Taste- Light tropical fruitiness with a citrus and light yeast combining with the malt for a sweet finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium to light body with a very light carbonation. Little to no alcohol warmth detected.

Overall- A variety of aspects effectively using the Nelson-Sauvin hops, making this English Style Ale a flavorful and delightful brew that in my opinion could be enjoyed even during the transitional seasons.
