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!

Bright sunshine yellow, soft textured white foam, sharp clarity.

Dank aroma when opened, floral and green, definite Sorachi Ace lemon tea note.
Citrusy taste, lime is there, citrus peel bitterness. Medium bodied, pretty drinkable and moderately bitter with a dry lingering aftertaste, got Sorachi in there again. Nice concept, more balanced lime in the aroma and taste may improve some, but it's nice as it is. I squeeze limes on just about everything, so this is definitely appealing. 2nd time trying this (PW's 2nd batch) it seemed a little more citrusy and balanced, good stuff.

Superior to most of the fruited fish beers IMHO. Lighter and less conflict between the heavy, sticky malt and the fruit / hop additions. There's a deftness to this that can be lacking in many of the PW DIPAs. Lighter yellow hue, great head retention, bursting with bittersweet, almost floral, lime peel and leaf notes. Never skews acrid which seems to be a common flaw of many beers incorporating lime. Crisp and clean finish.

Served in a nonic pint glass.

Having studied maritime law, I was more than happy to see the field co-opted by something/someone in the beer world. Trust me, it's more rewarding on the consumer side. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises Belgian candi sugar, lemon zest, lime zest, and light greens. The taste brings in more of the same, with both lemon zest and lime rind taking a stronger position. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a solid lime-spiked IPA, one that doesn't let the lime run rampant over all else. Not bad at all.
