22oz bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Batch #37. Pours a hazy golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, dense, frothy and creamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is big and juicy grapefruit and pineapple citruses with lots of sweet florals, some dank pines, a light peach and white grape, lots of orange peel, a touch of coriander spice, and a lightly sweetened grainy malt backing. Flavor is similar. Very fresh and juicy up front with lots of florals and a bit of a dank pine and earth giving off some white grapes and grapefruits with a light peach. Lots of orange peel, a light coriander spice, and a grainy, lightly sweetened malt backing that allows the hops to shine. Finishes lightly spiced, dry, and crisp with a moderate bitterness and a good amount of fruity, somewhat dank hops and orange peel. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a medium-light, crisp carbonation. Overall, a really nice English Pale Ale. Lots of fresh, juicy, catty, dank hops with a nice orange peel addition and a light coriander spice balanced with a lightly sweetened, grainy malt backing. Great beer.

Bomber from Fischman’s. Pours a cloudy, somewhat foamy pale yellowish-golden with a spongy white head leaving nice lacing. Aroma has sweet grassy hops, pine, citrus and toffee. Very nice and inviting! Taste is of sweet toffee, spicy pine, some lemony citrus and some herbalness. Quite light and effervescent. Finishes very dry, light and sweet. A very tasty offering from Pipeworks. Not sure how true to "English Pale" style it is, but it is tasty.

2000th American Beer Reviewed! From bottle at the FoBAB documentary party. Actually the last Pipeworks beer I tested, but I just want to enter ratings while I have time. Very pungent tropical fruit aroma, maybe gooseberry. Slight foam on top of a dense beer. Nelson Sauvin hops plus the citrus make it quite fruity, with kiwi on top of the nose. Malt does not quite back up the hops, so they stand by themselves.

Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Citrus and bready with a bit of coriander. Not too shabby. I could gladly drink this everyay.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2015 At bit strong, hoppy, and spiced to be something that resembles a English Pale ale, but that is just a problem to do with putting beers in to styles. Now, as for the beer itself, it starts with a strong hop aroma and a citrusy (maybe lemon) flavor. The hops flavor is initially strong as well but after the beer warmed a bit the hop blast died down a bit and everything balance and married together very nicely. The spicing was nicely done. Over all a nice beer. Serving: Bottle

Pours a hazy cloudy golden yellow color with a massive head. Nose is sweet citrus with a shared hoppy bitterness. Taste is spicy, coriander in particular, with upfront citrus and bitterness...... full of flavor, descent lacing. Finish is bittersweet citrus with mild to moderate lingering. Well done ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

it says "end of summer ale" on the label. 23 °F / Feels Like 13 °F right now, i’d say summer’s ended.

22oz Batch #53. Pour has a deep golden color and a covering of thick white head. Aroma has plenty of nelson hops, some light spicing, citrus rind, and a bit of toffee like malt. Mouth feel comes across light and the carbonation is solid. Flavor again leads in with the hops and they get quite dry and catty with some bitterness picking up. The citrus gets a bit muted and there is a light spice that mixes well with the malted side making me feel the English thing going on. They certainly are some zesty hops and the beer showcases them well.

Citrus has faded, might have waited to long. Has just pine and resin scents, taste is similar with a nice resin taste, need it fresh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
