brokensail (13202) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Golden pour with a white head. Very pine forward, slightly herbal, and floral. Tropical fruit, some citrus, and sweet caramel malts. Somewhat bitter flavor with a lot of pine, herbal hops, and some light grass notes. There’s a little bit of tropical fruit, some grapefruit, and sweet caramel.

rumproasts (4130) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. Huge citrus hops, especially grapefruit. Medium body with moderate booze. If you’re into citrus forward IPAs, I can’t imagine not liking this.

DrnkMcDermott (2902) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Guest draft at Lagunitas Beer Circus. Big piney hop smell up front. Amber beer under a foamy head. Taste has lots of Citra bitterness, but a strong pineapple component, too. A bit more malt sweetness, too. Under these conditions, I don’t get much more alcohol, which is just fine with me; the flavor is strong enough to speak for itself.

BuckeyeBoy (3604) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 19, 2015
22oz bottle pours out a golden orange topped with a small head. Nose is tropical fruit citrus pineapple melon and a nice sweetness. Taste is more of the tropical fruit pineapple grapefruit pithy and a nice malty sweetness to hold it together.

Savage_Night (114) - California, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Batch #692. Pours hazy orange with a nice frothy white head. Head retention is good. AROMA: tropical fruit, orange, pineapple, peppercorns, citrus, herbal/floral notes, slight malt and hop bitterness. FLAVOR: citrus, tropical fruit, pineapple, hop bitterness, slight malt, slight peppercorns, spice, tangerines and light alcohol. FINISH: dry oily feel with a citrus, hop and slight peppery aftertaste. First time having anything from pipeworks and it didn’t disappoint. Awesome flavors, aromas and look to the brew. Really looking forward to tasting more from Pipeworks.
