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. wlajwl (6803) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Aroma is tropical fruit/resinous hops, fruit and an undercurrent of malts. The flavor is tropical fruit, fruit, biscuit malts, light strawberry/berry sweetness and a dryish/tart finish. ryecatcher (1436) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2013 NOTE: RE-RATED IN 2013 AS ’MAJESTIC’ -- Bomber. Pours a murky pale golden orange, slight head and little in the way of lacing. Nose is basement catty dankness, guava, peach, lemon grass and citrus. Mouth is amazingly fruity, lots of tropics and mellow stone fruits, lemon zest. I don’t care what RateBeer says about it being an alias, while this is basically a lot like the At Her Majesty’s Pleasure... it is a better version of that beer. Like this one a whole lot. P-Dubs in the HOUSE! ;-)arminjewell (9635) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2012

Bottle. Pours a murky dull, gold color. No head to speak of. Nose is wet paper and (seriously) it smells like piss with some hops. Relieved to find that it doesn’t taste like it smells. Slightly tart up front with lemons, some dank hops bitterness and then some muted citrus, fading into malt and some cereal. Finishes pretty quickly, with a slight hint of warmth. One of the stranger beers I’ve had in a while, but decent.
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. timc100 (314) - Park Ridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Incredibly drinkable and refreshing. Ripe fruits, coriander, funky yeast, and a dry white wine finish. Very enjoyable.

Bottle sampled in Wicker Park. Much bigger version than the pilot batch was, but this works for sure. Pours gold with a heavy haze and sticky head. Nose is bright Nelson Sauvin. Gooseberries and a touch catty. Light yeasty esters and toasty malts. On tasting, super clean and almost elegant. Showcase of the tropical fruit that you can get from the NS. Plenty of malt support. Fantastic stuff. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2012
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.

Bottle. Hazed yellow with a white head. Tart lemon juicy grape aromas. Bright and tart on the tongue. Effervescent grapes and lemon with an herbal finish. Complex juicy. Dry. Nice. 8/4/8/4/8/4/15 kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Poured yellowish with little white floaties in it from a bomber. Amazing citrus and fruity aroma. Lemon taste with assertive hops and bitter. Love it AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2013
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.
