4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
22 oz. bottle served in a Bell’s tulip. Batch # 54.
A: Pours a clear amber color with a light yellow head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thin film and ring that leaves soapy lace down the glass.
S: Big bursts of citrus. Orange flesh, lemon peel, and sticky grapefruit. Some sweet bread malts and a touch of bitter resin on the tail end. This smells ridiculously good.
T: More grapefruit in the taste than the smell. Orange and lemon peel with some alcohol bite to it. There is a definite warming, but the booze and warmth doesn’t detract from the overall flavor profile. Some light bready malts with a little bitter green as well.
M: Medium bodied with a sticky and slightly oily mouthfeel, but it is surprising light on the finish with a high drinkability.
O: This is by far the best thing Pipeworks has pumped out. We all know hops are in their wheelhouse, but their use of the Citra hops really shined in this. Juicy, citrusy and pleasantly sweet. I’m sure I speaking for everyone that’s tried when I say this has to be bottled on a consistent base.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to csteele2144. Had a bit of age on it (B283), but I knew that going in. Pours hazy orange amber, small off white head, nice lacing. Aroma is passion fruit, grapefruit, pine, dankness, caramel. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter, dank. Somewhat hard on the finish. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty hot. Need a fresher one at some point.

Bottle gift from SJ. Very well blended brew. Nice bold notes of mango, floral hop, big time Citra and caramel malt. Citra has become one of my favs.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Quite outstanding beer full of tropical fruit flavors and some slight earthiness / grassiness from the hops. Has a really sweet malt base that doesn’t interfere with the hops, but more or less just helps them stand out. Very good.
