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!

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.

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.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 1 pt 6 oz bottle on September 14, 2014. Look is clear copper gold hue with a white head and lingering lacing. Smell is lime juice/zest, subtle hop notes and sweet malt aromas. Taste is nice lime juice/zest, some herbal hops and sweet malt flavors. Feel is medium in body that is initially crisp but finishes smooth.

Lime and assorted fruit hopped up nose

More ripe tropical fruits with lime being the bell cow. Delicious stuff. Long tropical/lime juice I fused finish
