I was astounded by Pipeworks debut. It knocked my socks off. All of the times you hear of a beer tasting like summer and agree but agree based on the assumption that no beer could ever truly grasp the complexity, vibrance and joy of the season? Ummm this beer has all of that, it is in my opinion, a beer that elevates the style. Lookout for Pipeworks.

Truly a great beer. Smells like ninja with notes of unicorn. Taste is as colorful as the label on the bottle.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a half finger of thick lasting white head. Aroma of huge tropical fruit with a hint of citrus. Taste is light bitter. Starts big with the citrus and finishes huge with tropical fruit. Loads of pineapple and mango. Full bodied with slick yet slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, absolutely awesome. I swear i could drink this everyday.

The most citrusy nose I've smelled. The best part is that the flavor backs it up. This is an unreal beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great bitter and grapefruit accent with a wonderful honey and floral aroma.

Had it out of a bomber, poured a clear yellow color with a thin head and even lacing. The aroma is of sweet hops, tickles the nostrils even, the taste is hoptacular with notes of citrus. I Say yes!

A: Orange/copper with a nice head that lingers a bit, some nice lacing as well. S: Really nice dank citrus notes upfront with some orange and pine. Really amazing smell. T: Same as the smell a lot of citrus, pine, and some dankness . An easy to drink beer that I could drink all the time. M: A perfect amount of carbonation. Slight alcohol taste but not overpowering, and not overly sweet like I like it. O: Really enjoy this beer, have had it a few times now and always enjoy it. Love all the DIPA’s.

Color is blonde. Taste is well balanced,little taste of alcohol even being at 8.5% . the ibu’s over 140 doesn’t even taste that hoppy. A really well balanced IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 From a traveling bomber in a Pipeworks glass. Pours a deep, slightly hazy golden cover. Aroma is resiny, citrus and spicy. Medium bodied, with a nice malt undertone. Good balance, as the 8.5 abv is subdued. Finishes clean and crisp. Awesome beer.
