The Pipeworks Reliquary contains some of the most heralded and legendary artifacts known across the land. The bone fragments from the mythical horned beast of lore, remnants from the Local 1675 conquest of Brewerania, and the grand icons of those who aided in our path to glory are but a few of the relics we hold dear. The bottle you now hold is a hybrid ale brewed with American Malt, Belgian yeast and hops from Australia, New Zealand, and the US.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dull orange color with a bright white medium head. Aroma of belgian yeast, peaches, apricots. Strong belgian yeast flavor, big hop notes. Lots of fruit. Nice carbonation. Finishes big and fruity.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle... Pours hazy and dirty-orange with a small, fizzy, white head. Great retention. The nose is a fruity blend of orange marmalade and red apple. Full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is quite sweet, but equally bitter. The hops, malts, esters and phenols don’t play together nicely here. Finishes bittersweet, but far more sweet than bitter. Thanks to BBB63 for supplying the bottle!

zgaier (1889) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with an off white head and aroma of yeast and hops. Taste is of Belgain yeast, hops, spices, and fruits with a spicy, bitter finish.

jjgmd (1985) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Pours a dark burnt orange color with a decent head. Nose is fruity, sweet and hoppy. Taste is bittersweet but more towards the bitter side, with hoppy, citrus and deep piney notes. Finish is bitter as well with a moderately long citrusy piney resinous ending. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Strykzone (6717) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Sampled at esbls. Hazed golden. A funky odd foam that resembles clouds. Big malts and lighter citrus in the aroma. Tartness than expected. Big malts. Tangerine and more fomplexity in the hops. Big alcohol.

TheHOFF43 (2043) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle. Not really sure what the style is suppose to be. Taste upfront is an IPA but its mixed with some Belgian. Smooth, creamy and overall solid.

914sig (7) - New York, USA - JUN 3, 2013 does not count
exactly is what it is, to the fullest flavor. Looks like a Belgian when its poured, and sits perfectly in the glass with a nice white head. For 9 ABV it goes down smooth. Truly one of my favorites

Boothead (26) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Aroma is light and hard to pin down. Coppery in pour. Sweet taste with bitter aftertaste. Oily on the palate. I’d like to like it more, but the taste is not my favorite.

jstraw (1963) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Muddy amber with whispy, creamy off-white head, light legs / Big 2ipa nose of pine, citrus, caramel, weed / Full body, malty with biting hops, some sweetness, big, bitter finish / Rich, but somewhat cooked flavors of grapefruit, orange peel, cut pine, soap, caramel, chamomile / Not picking up any Belgian aspect - my guess is that the big hops overwhelm any Belgian subtleties, but a decent double ipa.

ccex (1191) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bomber pours a hazy golden orange with small white head and slight lacing. Aroma has lots of apricots, Belgian yeast, pine resin, and some citrus hops. Taste is slightly bitter with some sweet malts in the middle and a long dry finish. Body is medium with light carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky, with alcohol very well hidden. Another delightful one from Pipeworks.
