Unicorn's RevengeUnicorn's Revenge
Notes: This epic battle is exhausting The Unicorn. He's been at it fighting all sorts of creatures, spirits, beings from other worlds and other dimensions. If there's one thing The Unicorn hates, it's sadness. If there's another one thing The Unicorn hates, it's exhaustion. It is time The Unicorn made all others regret the day, they began this epic battle! With an intense and unexpected juicy and floral combination that can only come with generous amounts of New Zealand hops.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- copper hued orange. small head but sticky, mostly small bubbles.

s- lemon grass, butter, tropical, mango, pineapple, very small hint of peach. some malt coming though, smells a lot like SN estate wet hop ale.

T- Grapefruit rind, really sweet peachy taste, coming from the malt. Very midwestish style. bitterness hits quick and hard them mellows fast, and lingers for sometime.

M- medium to medium heavy, plenty of carbonation, really easy to drink.

Must have for ipa fans, and more so if you live near pipeworks, pick up any of their ipa's and you will not be disappointed.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

No sign of a bottling date, shame on you Pipeworks.

A: Pours a mostly-clear light orange. Very tall and frothy tan head. Head fades slowly, leaving fairly heavy chunks of lacing behind.

S: Citrusy with a side of tropical fruit. Light bready notes. It's been months since I've had a beer so I'm sure I'm rusty.

T: Hops are bristly and sharp but the flavor is surprisingly less bold. Again, citrus and tropical fruit. Beer may be old, who knows but it doesn't have that distinct stale hop flavor yet. I'd say 2-4 months old. Fairly sweet, this is 10% after all. Lots of breadiness and then some citrus and flowers on the back end.

M: Medium-heavy and slightly harsh from the hops.

O: Nice DIPA but I suspect a bit old, which definitely detracts from a beer like this. Quite good regardless.

Big disappointment- I want revenge now!

It smells wonderful. Hoppy, with great tropical/citrus and floral aromas.

But the taste that stands out the most is a metal bitterness...and it lingers - not good! Especially when compared to the other Unicorns & Ninjas of this type.

I'm sure it's better when it's fresher, but I can't imagine one month would degrade this IIPA to any huge extent.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a amber copper color with a full white head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is sweet malt, butter scotch, and bubble gum.

Bubble gum hops on the taste along with astringent alcohol. Gives way to a sticky malty sweetness.

Not my favorite high ABV pipeworks, but it is good.
