A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving only a small patch of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of lime zest are present in the nose along with some hints of lemon juice.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of limes in the forefront along with notes of lemons and hints of orange citrus. Only a faint amount of bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink for an Imperial IPA and has no traces of alcohol in the taste.

Bottled spring 2016; drank 6/19/16 @ the Yarchives.

Semi-opaque yellow appearance; champagne bubbles throughout.

A rough pour yielded a nice bright white head; a thick curtain of tree-rung lace.

Lemon, lime & faint dandelion notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Lemon & lime soda flavors up front; dry dandelion notes on the finish. No booze heat.

A Sprite, then, & not a particularly great one.

22 oz. Bomber

Poured into a Tired Hands glass a pretty nice clean/clear golden pale yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is pretty nice, hoppy, citrus, lime, very diesel like. The taste is pretty nice as well, hoppy, citrusy, lime, very nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden pretty well, nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

A 22 oz bomber with no visible bottled on date on the bottle. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Appearance: It poured a golden straw yellow colour with a three finger white head that had pretty good retention and left nice lacing.

Aroma: Strong lime with a touch of grapefruit pith and lemons.

Taste: Like the aroma, tangy lime is at the forefront followed by some lemon, zest and grains.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: This was not bad but perhaps a bit too much lime such that it overpowers everything else.

22 ounce bottle into a snifter. Bottled 6/9/16, had 7/5.

Pours a light yellow, a bit cloudy, with a one finger, quickly dissipating head and some loose lacing. Smell is lime, citrus hops- orange, lemon, yeast, light malt, some dank hops as it warms. The taste also leads with lime, some citrus hops, lemon, a little yeast, it's tart when its more warmed. Decent bitterness throughout, some dank hops on the finish. Smooth, light bodied, dry, fairly refreshing.

This is definitely good, but for me, a lesser luminary among PW Imperial IPA's. Less of a malt presence than usual for them, as well . Certainly worth a purchase.

Appearance - The beer poured a straw yellow color with a fluffy white head.

Smell - Lime is definitely present in the nose.

Taste - My first impression is the big lime hops. Crisp cracker malts lay a pleasant backbone. The limes notes are at a perfect level. The carbonation brushes away most of the lime, leaving behind cracker malts and a sour sensation.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation fulfills its role in the taste by preventing lime domination.

Overall - Pipeworks has another winner here.

Pours a slightly cloudy light dull straw yellow with a thin crown of white foam and some particulate due to heavy pour.

Strong aroma of lime and and other citrus fruit zest with subtle tropical fruit notes.

Tart lime and lemon washes over the tongue with a bright and citrusy dry twangy finish.

Light-bodied, low-medium carbonation, crisp, tarty twang, citrusy.

Overall, while certainly drinkable, this beer was just not my thing. What I do have to say about it though is that I fully expected the lime to be too apparent, but it's much more toned down than anticipated.

amazing beer right here, pipeworks is killing it right now! hard to imagine this is a double ipa, its insanely pale, washed out straw colored, with an airy but quickly dissipating white head, looks too delicate to be a double ipa. the aroma here is amazing, i pick my favorite hop, sorachi ace, out right away with its lemony brightness that marries splendidly with the lime in here. the lime is anything but subtle, summery and acidic, it cuts some of the usual heaviness in the style, its zesty and alive, and brings out some cool properties in the others hops in here too, everyone's citrus qualities are on full peacock here. a great lightness of feel, and theres not a ton of grain flavor to this, it almost has the sports drink/beer hybrid thing going on, they were smart to keep it so light and clean on the malt side. the hops really shine, sorachi is forward but in balance with the other varietals, and the lime both starts and finishes this flavor experience. its the right amount of everything, including bitterness, which is average for the style. great carbonation makes it hard to believe i am drinking a beer this strong. a really inspired and well executed twist on the double ipa. this is killer summer beer, i hope bottle make it around. i had this on tap at the crafty fox. not to be missed!

L - pilsner-like, clear, very little head

S - citrusy and dank, could've missed the lime if it wasn't in big letters on the bottle

T - there's the lime, or more like lime peel, with lemongrass, light on the malt, not very bitter on the finish

F - pretty light, medium plus carbonation, no burn, too refreshing to be 8%

O - I don't know, I'm confused -- it's good but I sort of want it to be a session IPA or a saison or something -- maybe DIPAs don't need lime
