1st pour was a nice deep golden near coppery hue with a lovely head and lace, 2nd pour was much more cloudy. Strong apricot and other stone fruits with a nice background of pine and pepper. Solid bready malts and that brash and often cleansing PW mouth feel. I am very much digging this more than expected.... boy I bet this would rock if around 5.5-6%

22 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of fruit, malt, grass, and pine. Taste is apricot, malt, grass, and pine. Kind of muddled. Aroma is better than the taste.

Bottle; Pour is murky light gold with a frothy white head into this glass -stick lacing presence as one would expect, I suppose. Alright - well . I thought the mango pale was a terrific success. I thought the pear was an epic failure. I decided to hope that this was more like the mango. It was more like a little bit of both. The nose is baked breads, moving to citrus hops, pale fruits, and a touch of spice here. The flavor profile is a little muddled - It must be said that the apricot is hardly noticeable - it is bittering initial, with a hint of cream, moving to more citrus hops and muddled pine notes. There’s a touch of alcohol presence - but it really just drops off.

Shared bomber poured to a festival sampler, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a frothy layer of white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was light but ripened pit fruit, pith, and some dankness. The taste improved a bit with some juiciness to the flavor, and continued somewhat appealing, with a light to medium body, soft carbonation, and moderate hop bitterness. Love apricots, but wasn’t thrilled here. Maybe a Pyramid will satisfy the craving.

650ml bottle. Not the first fruit I would select for a pale ale but wow this has HUGE apricot aroma and plenty in the flavor. Supremely drinkable despite the 8.5% abv.

ryecatcher (804) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Bomber. Pours a hazy, pale orangey-gold, medium white head with very nice retention and lacing. Nose is fruity (apricots, melon, pears), mildly dank, some malts, juicy fruit gum. Mouth is medium bodied, initially mild sweetness, then goes relatively dry, fruity, grass, bread dough, slightly vegetal gumminess near finish with a bit of bitterenss. Meh... especially for P-Dubs.

Drank at home...bottled...pours golden slightly carbonated with a white head. Fruity odor. Doesn't quite taste as good as it looks. Still love Pipeworks though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
