Hazy amber beer with a tidy off white head. Palate is semi dry and crispy. Minerals and a trace of spice to start. A little orange and peach. Malt turns a little papery. Semi dry finish. Mild bitter linger. Messy and disjointed. A rare Pipeworks fail.
Bottle. Pours hazy lemon. Bone white head. Some lacing. Nose/taste of lemon peel, dried citrus, resin, yeast, hops and herbal notes. Medium body. Dry peel and slight resin finish. Tmoney99 (14869) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle shared by DanielCoors. Poured hazy dark yellow color with a large frothy white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex sour citrus, spice and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a complex beer. crossovert (13747) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2013 650ml bottle. Murky pineapple juice color, quickly dissipating head.. Spicy but tropical smell. White grape, candy, mandarin orange. Delicious aroma. The flavor is okay. Sauvin hops dominate, the malt bill is rather buttery which heavily detracts from the beer. Definitely vinous and it doesn’t blend with the butter. The corriander is also quite noticeable. It loses the buttery characteristic as you go and stays a very nelson-y light drinking beer.
Got a bottle as majestic. It is better. Like a sauviny dipa with no bitterness. Dogbrick (13564) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Sample (as Majestic) from batch #84 at Kurtkeller 004: Pipeworks-tastic 01 on 01/18/2014. The beer pours a clear pale yellow-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, caramel and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, citrus and hops. The finish is semi-sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Very cloudy orange color, white head. Flavors of tart, juicy oranges, coriander, light cookie notes, yeast. Soft on the tongue. alexsdad06 (10672) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours an orange amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma had nice citrus (orange, grapefruit) and resiny hops, orange peel,light spices and mild white grape notes. The malts were very much in the background. The flavor was also more hop forward; citrus, orange, grapefruit, white grapes, herbal, with light malts and mild bitterness. Medium bodied. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy yellow-orange pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of earth, sweet fruity hops with some orange, nice coriander, spice notes, mix of sweet red ripe fruit, slight tropical fruit but restrained. Taste is a mix of sweet white fruits, coriander, orange peel, touch of earth, biscuit, bread, lots of toffee, yeast, slight diacetyl that works super well, finishing fairly sweet. Nice slightly hoppy and tropical fruit forward english ale. Dig it. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2013
22oz bottle, shared by danielcoor. Batch 126. Totally hazy golden orange color. Very big, bubbly, airy off-white head. Orange, light spice in the nose. Kind of caramelly malty in the flavor, light sweet. Light spice. Soft carbonation, bigger body, more dry finish. Overall, alright summer ale. Carbonation is a little bit soft, nose is better than the flavor, flavor is a little gutty and vegetal. I hoped for more. I think this bottle may have gone awry. b3shine (9079) - Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2013
750 ml bottle to taster (shared by DanielCoor). Looks solid; a hazy golden orange with AMPLE white head. Smells somewhat hoppy with a big, boozy pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells, only milder, with an average mouthfeel. Alright.
