22 oz. Bomber

Pours a very nice cloudy dark golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight malt, very nice citrus, with some pineyness. The taste is hoppy, slight malt, very nice citrus, with some nice pine notes, picking up some tangerine. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a really nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very tasty brew.

Pours an orange tinged color. Slightly hazy due to the beer being unfiltered. Thick pillowy white head dissipates slowly leaving a nice layer of foam on the top of the beer with some sticky lacing.

Smell is incredibly fragrant. Aromas of citrus, pine, foliage. Tons of simcoe aroma.

Taste is pretty straightforward. Strong simcoe hop presence. Nice balance between the fruitiness and pine. Light cracker malt backbone. Touch of sweetness but not overly so. Slight bitterness on the finish.

Feel is quite lovely. Not to heavy for a DIPA. Medium carbonation. Spot on for a DIPA.

Overall a really nice DIPA. Simcoe really works well with the base DIPA for a lovely beer.

22oz bottle $9.49. Excited for this one because I loved the Mosaic version of this beer and I know Mosaic has a Simcoe heritage. Golden orange, good head. Earthy, piney, hoppy aroma that is distinctly Simcoe. Pine and berries in the flavor, not too bitter, not boozy at all (surprising). Slightly astringent finish. Nice beer but I prefer the Mosaic.

How can you go wrong with Pipeworks single hop IIPA series?

A clear golden ale with as big a head as you want of off-white foam that leaves messy lace all down the glass. Smells like citrus fruits and berries with a woody, earthy edge. On the tongue, herbal pine rounds the fruits nicely, adding something musky to the blackberries and lime. Medium-bodied and smooth, moderately carbonated feel, and a satisfying finish that will definitely call for another glassful.
