COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Collaboration with Tired Hands Brewing Company. This 8% imperial IPA was brewed with fresh lime zest and juice as well as Simcoe and Amarillo hops. A great beer for all things summer.

An interesting and satisfyingly refreshing Imperial IPA from the underrated Pipeworks Brewing Co.. The lime is potent, but the backend allows some nice hops to come through with a little of the alcohol. Very nice, but very hard to find.

Appearance: Pours a bright yellow gold with a soapy head.

Aroma: Huge lime lollipop and pine.

Taste: Bitter lime zest, pine. A little tart. Spicy malt. Very close to lime aid territory. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel: Low carb. Full bodied.

Overall: A very fun, non-offensive tasty experience. The lime is the star of this show as you can tell by my notes. It didn’t seem gimmicky or artificial, and tasted nothing like a Mexican beer with lime in it, just to be clear.

22 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a semi-hazy copper color with a fluffy white head of foam. The aroma has big bright citrus zest notes along with pungent, herbal notes. In the taste I can really get the lime juice. It reminds me of lime gelato actually. Mildly bitter throughout. Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Pretty refreshing. The lime character is really enjoyable.

Pours a really hazy gold with some head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is bright and limey with a big fruity hop character. Pretty pungent!

The flavor is lime forward, never extremely bitter or sour, just a lot of bright lime character. The beer is basically dry and has a nice wallop of fruity hoppiness.

Really dig some of these well made lime beers.

Tasting at Bruce’ s pad. Very hazy gold beer, small pale cream coloured head. Smooth airy palate. Softish. Really nice floral lime with a little pine and mild marmalade. Touch of lemon. Underneath is nice soft creamy malt. Comes together well. Smooth finish with a decent bitter linger.

Scopey (6711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle thanks to Kenny. It pours cloudy golden-orange with a small white head. The nose is orange, tangerine, mango, passion fruit, marmalade and sherbet. The taste is doughy, crisp, spice, orange peel, grapefruit, mandarin, lime pith, peppery, light alcohol and decent bitterness with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty decent.

Bottle shared at my 5K tasting at Bruce’s pad, big thanks to Kenny for this one, 13/11/13. #197 whatever that refers to on the bottle !?! Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is bitter orange, grapefruit, straw, orange sherbet. Taste comprises orange pith, hint mango, grapefruit, toasted malts, bread dough, light booze. Medium bodied, fine carbonatio, dry grassy hop bitterness in the closure. Ok DIPA - not a particularly aggressive number making for an easy drinking affair.

Bottle cheers to Ken. Clear golden yellow pour with a small white head. Nose is absolutely huge lime - mohito like lime and mint. Light spices and quite herbal with a hint of tropical fruits - passionfruit, mandarin and tangerine. Taste is big lime zest and spices, lemon peel, orange, mandarin juiciness. Kind of like a sweet, very fruit driven cocktail rather than a beer but it works together quite well
