3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of the most pungent aromas Iíve ever smelled upon cracking open a bottle-- you would have though it was a 22oz container of candied peaches and melons, packaged in hibiscus tea, itís that tropical and fruity smelling.
But then you pour what looks like a pretty "normal" beer-- light, lagery color, mostly clear.
And then the taste resembles neither the appearance or the smell-- sharp earthy, gritty, bitterness with a relatively light mouth feel. It doesnít feel as thick or syrupy as Ninja v Unicorn or Blood of the Unicorn.
A really interesting IIPA. I wish theyíd balanced out the bitterness with a bit more of the sweet, but itís really hard to complain about, for any true hop lover-- especially as long as you keep breathing in deeply as you drink (the smells really interact with the flavors heavily in this one).

Golden color, white head. Big bold hoppy beer with a nice wheat/malt backbone. Some light dough notes are present, but the citrusy and grassy hops steal the show. Nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bomber, pours a hazy amber yellow with a small white head. Aroma is citrus floral. Taste is lots of grapefruit rind and citrus, with a strong hoppy bitterness. Thereís some fruit in there too, but the bitterness predominates. Finish is bitter. Itís good, but the bitterness is more than my preference.

Had it out of a Bomber (itís basically the only way to get a Pipeworks brew).Light hop aroma, murky orange hue, light white head (how I likes it), and a Bruce Lee hopped up roundhouse kick to the tastebuds.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted from a bomber. It poured a murky golden orang hue with a short white head that leaves streaky white lacing. Bright citrus hop aroma with hints of grapefruit and other fruity goodness. Pipworks are the guardians of all kinds of hoppy goodness!
