Pours a very hazy golden with barely a cap of white head. A lot of lacing. Aroma is citrusy, spice and everything nice. A lot of grapefruit and lime. Some maltiness. The mouth is INTENSELY bitter. A lot of citrus here. The strong lime note is present again with an awesome spice balance. Leaves a slight burning feeling in the cheeks. Surprised this one is rated so low. I enjoyed it.

Bomber at Jerryís. Yellow-gold with good, creamy, white head / Bright, light nose of weed, earth, pine, citrus / Light body, surprising for an 8% abv, but the alcohol not prominent, weak fruit, mostly dry, some astringency and bitter finish / Flavors of weed, pine, grapefruit, earth, hint of lime / The lime is pleasantly subtle, but the rest is undistinguished and somewhat out of balance.

Bottle; Pour is murky gold, with a one finger, fine bubbled white head into this glass - thereís sticky lacing presence and decent retention here. The flavor profile is heavy on the graham cracker, lime juice notes, moving to more of a typical citrus, grapefruit, caramel feel moving through the experience. The flavor profile is lime juice, more graham cracker - the lime notes are a bit over powering relative to the base beer - It also feels overly sweet, and a bit one dimensional as well. It was an interesting attempt, either way but....it wasnt the best from the variants iíve gone at thus far.

Enjoyed on tap at the Bad Apple in Chicago, IL. I had this on a warm night and forgot to review, but remember this being extremely good. When I ordered it I was a bit hesitant since the only beer Iíve had containing lime was a Bud Lite Lime, and obviously it wasnít going to be like that at all, but since itís a seldom used ingredient I was intrigued to see what Pipeworks would do with it. I throughly enjoyed it, itís a central component but not overpowering and mixed well with the hop profile. Very good stuff.

Bottle via Omar, thanks! My first actually fresh Pipeworks IPA! GLORY BE, THEY DO MAKE FRESH BOTTLES! Porus a hazy neon orange with a mild white head. Aroma is lime peel, floor cleaner and some booze. Taste is actually rather lime forward. Slight peach in the middle with a nice dank note as well with the lime juice then coming in to finish it off. Wow. Lime IPA for sure.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(old) Bottle... Cloudy deep-golden pour with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma offers spicy, resiny hops and tons of lime. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor is modestly bitter and, like the nose, boasts truckloads of lime. Low acidity. Mildly bitter finish. This may have been more enjoyable had I not cellared it for so long, but it also may not have been. There was still plenty of lime essence, but a fresher bottle would have been more bitter. I donít like "more bitter." F*ck IPAs. Yep... thatís how I roll. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

Bottle. Pour is hazy yellow with lots of floaties and a small white head. Aroma and flavor are bursting with citrus notes of mango, passion fruit, and grapefruit. A nice spicy, crisp finish with a lightly sweet malt note. Lime not overly apparent but citrus dominates for sure. Really nice beer.

Pours a cloudy orange with a fizzy white head. Aroma of citrus and lime. Taste is of bitter grapefruit. Medium mouth feel with medium high carbonation. Definitely has the style of both breweries in one beer.

Bomber via Archer Liquors, Chicago, pours a yellow lime color with a small white head. Nose is fresh lemon line, very fragrant and aromatic. Taste is light and quite citrusy and not all that bitter. Very drinkable ! Finish ends on the same tasting notes with a mild lingering. Delicious ! Quaff Score 8/ 10
