22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, a little bit of light fruit and spiciness from the yeast, some light malts, and light dough. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A good Belgian IPA, but something on the finish is slightly weird.

Big thanks to StFun for this one. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a creamy white head. Nose shows pineapple and lots of Belgian esters. Lots of overripe fruit juice. Super pineapple-y with some doughy notes. Heavy interaction between the hops and the Belgian yeast.

Bottle, tnx. Pours clear golden amber with a small off white head leaving some lace. Aroma is great again; citric piny cat bin fruity tropical fruits yeasty spicy. Flavor is fruity bitter slightly malty in front, more bitterness tropical fruits pungent in the middle finishing longlived bitter piny and spicy. Yet another spot on, just love the Belgo and bitter combo.

Bomber from cjacobsen on BA - thanks, Chris! Have to say that for my first (I think) Pipeworks I was hoping for a bit more. Slightly under-carbonated pour, like iced tea or apple juice. Nose was very strongly soapy, with loads of sweet and vaguely artificial fruit obscuring most of the hops. Body was reasonable full, palate a bit waxy. The flavors continued to disappoint, though, as there was relatively little in the way of a hop profile or yeast complexity. Strange, possibility even an off bottle.

Golden color with a small white head. Light floral hoppy nose. Flavors of orange and tangerine with home made bread and yeast underneath. Nice hoppy Belgian beer.

22 oz. bottle. Orange pour with a thin white head on top. Aroma of strong citrus hops, and a nice belgian yeast twang. Mild apricot jam notes as well as grass and a slight brininess. Flavor has a lot of citrus and fruit with a bright hoppiness that shines beneath the fruity, spicy, somewhat salty Belgian yeast profile. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Finishes with a touch of alcohol. Nice, very drinkable belgian ipa.

Draft at the Rev Party. Pours a somewhat cloudy deep orange gold with more than enough head. The nose affords a lot of white peppery type notes, citrus, tangerine, grapefruit and peach. I’ve never been much of a fan of Belgian IPA and this one trends that way heavily. It is a bit cleaner and less phenolic than most. Firm bitterness with a drying finish. Malt supports. Juicy and fruity but the Belgian notes are just not my thing. Still, well made beer.

Bottle at James’ place for his Jan tasting. Hazy orange golden pour. Aromas and taste of citrus rind, belgian yeasts, and some spicy hops. I am not a fan of belgian ipas but this one was somewhat enjoyable from what I remember. Cheers.

Pipeworks Glaucus. 22oz bottle drank at the source thanks fellas... Pours a mostly
transparent, just slightly hazy, golden brown coloration and topped
with a tbin to medium soapy white head... Dank fresh tropical fruit
hoppy goodness, dry and earthy with peachy undertones and touches of white pepper. fruity hops dominate while the belgian yeast play more o of a subordinate role which is what i prefer... Flavors follow suit with a nice
creamy mouthfeel with a big hop backing. Mild Belgian yeast bent but
doesn’t take over. Nice bodied and well executed. Would really enjoy a more sessionable version of this for sure.
