COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
May those long suffering AT HER MAJESTYíS PLEASURE be granted a sweet reprieve in these days of despairing heat. A fine English style with feudal offerings of vinous hops, coriander and orange peel, is sure to ease the commonerís burden after a day of toll. And though the asperity of the queen knows no bounds, hold your hopes and glasses high and drink deep of this liquid rebellion!

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 22 oz bottle served in a Great Divide cervoise. Batch #37. A: Pours a hazy apricot color with a two finger height of white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick cap and collar that leave sticky splotches of lace down the glass. S: Definitive white grape with some rind and pithy bitterness. Slight dried grass with some honey malt sweetness. T: Grassy with some sweet honey malts. White grape with a subtle, under ripe greenness to it. The Nelson Sauvin hops really add a nice dryness to the beer. M: Light bodied with a medium to high carbonation level. Subtle drying finish with some sweet green grape to it. O: Not really an English style, but I donít really care. Itís a really well put together beer that hits it on all levels, especially with the addition of the Nelson Sauvin hops. Iím looking forward to more beers from the PW guys with these nice New Zealand hops. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-23-2012 look: 4 smell: 3.75 taste: 4 feel: 4.25 overall: 4 22 oz bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter. Batch # 126. A: Pours a hazy orange color with a pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some soapy lace down the glass. S: Orange citrus with some notes of lemon peel and white bread. Not overly malty. It captures the "summer" portion quite well in the nose. T: Same as the nose. Lots of orange peel with some lemon zest and a touch of grapefruit as well. Very mild bitterness on the back end with a nice white bread sweetness. M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Sweet and citrusy notes on the finish. O: The PW boys captured the Summer portion of this beer quite well, but I was missing the English portion of this. Not enough malt body. Having said that it was still a highly drinkable and refreshing summer ale. Serving type: bottle 05-27-2013

Bottle. Pours pale hazy gold with white head. Aroma has a great green grape and cat box, some nice peach fuzz hidden back there too. Flavors are fresh nelson grapey and catty with subtle coriander and florals. Really spicy and hoppy backend. Crisp, light, hoppy, spicy, delicious. Dry and refreshing. Some booze detected on the finish but this is excellent stuff.

22oz bottle picked up at wlv... pours a mostly hazy and non-transparent hefe like hue, lively with effervescence, and topped with a thin to medium soapy white head... fresh hop aroma of dank citrus tones and white grape to go alongside some juicy white grapefruit. love nelson and was happy to see if bursting out from this one... flavors follow suit with more juicy focused nelson forward focus which displayed notes of grapefruit and orange as well as the white grapiness that is normally associated with nelson sauvin. itís almost more of a really hoppy wheat with the citrusy overtones and light malt backing. midway through, a gentle tartness surfaces to go along with a just shy of medium body with adequate carbonation. glad this wasnít a true english style pale ale and the fellas allowed the nelson to showcase itself almost exclusively and that, to me, was a very good thing. very little bitterness to this one - almost forgot to mention that. letís hope that pw has a steady supply of this hop coming in for them to utilize. hmmm, i think i drank this one a bit too fast.

22 oz bottle (batch 53) pours a cloudy light golden color with decent white head and some lacing. Aroma made me say WOW! The aroma is full of lemon and other citrus hops, some spices and pine resin. Taste is slightly bitter with a long dry finish. Medium body without too much carbonation. I expect something different from Pipeworks, and this one definitely delivers. One of their best that I have tried so far.

2000th American Beer Reviewed! From bottle at the FoBAB documentary party. Actually the last Pipeworks beer I tested, but I just want to enter ratings while I have time. Very pungent tropical fruit aroma, maybe gooseberry. Slight foam on top of a dense beer. Nelson Sauvin hops plus the citrus make it quite fruity, with kiwi on top of the nose. Malt does not quite back up the hops, so they stand by themselves.
