Bomber crushed with Honkeybra. Been a long time since I could write that. Pours a hazy golden with a very nice white head. Initial aroma of pine hoppiness with some citrus and a bit of ethyl acetate. Flavor is fresh hops, citrus, a bit of tongue-numbing bitterness. A superior dipa.

I was always trying to track this one down. Bottle thanks to Ellen, charule's wife. Pours a fairly clear orange with a frothy white head. Aroma of mango and some pineapple. The taste is bitter and reminds me of grapefruit juice. Great malt backbone but a slight harsh bitter finish. Light body with medium carbonation.

Strong citrus nose. Lemony and grapefruit. Strong bitterness but not overpowering. Not pithy. Wow. Yummy ---Rated via intercellular device

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 Batch 211/12/13. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a finger head that goes away slowly. Smells of resinous pine, pineapple, dank, tropical fruits, mango, carmel, butterscotch, and breadiness. Taste starts with tons of resinous pine and tropical fruits, very dry to start. Then get a buttery biscuit taste, as well as candy-like sweetness, pineapple, guava. Really surprising malt backbone. Then the finish is tons of pineapple and guava, mango, orange peel, a resinous pine or grass quality, buttery biscuit, more sugary sweetness. Very dry finish. Almost like a fruit salad. High medium body with an oily, creamy, and crisp mouthfeel. This is a ridiculously balanced and delicious double ipa. The hop profile is intense and complex and the malts and sugars complement the hops very well. Outstanding beer when it’s fresh.

Fresh is best and this one is very fresh. Hazy golden in color with creamy thin head. A very interesting multi-note aroma opens. Taste only builds on the aroma. Full bodied with lingering pleasant aftertaste. 22oz pour into snifter.

MotherBrother (877) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2013
This is a good looking beer. The pour is really hazy light orange, with a two-finger white head. Aroma is fruity hops, citrus, light weed, tropical fruits, slightly (very slightly) perfumed hop juice.. The taste is slightly sweet upfront, with a long n’ lingering bitter finish. Medium body, with a semi-fizzy carb.

Pours a nice, cloudy honey color. Great malty, citrus aroma. Heavy bitter hop flavor, and slightly sour with grapefruit notes. Less malty than your standard DIPA. Long, bitter finish. I like this beer, but perhaps not as much as some other DIPA offerings from Pipeworks.

Bottle, thanks bytemesis! Cloudy orange, tremendous creamy foam top. Citrus and flowery aroma with a bit of dank, like a wet hayfield. Bitter but not overwhelmingly so considering it is a double. The star here is the very well balanced malt: grain and straw flavors, hint of yeast. had the character of a cask-conditioned beer. Definitely among the best malt-forward doubles i have had. Bitterness eventually wins out in the long finish.
