COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In this epic battle, the Blood of the Unicorn has been shed by the sword of the deadly assassin of the east. One sip of this aggressively hopped red ale clearly reveals what drives these, the greatest of, hop heads of lore. Is this the end of the mythical horned horse? Or will he rise like the phoenix to fight another day?

Can shared in CW - many thanks to Mr. Fr0g. Pours mostly clear golden-brown with a creamy white head. The nose holds faded toasted pine, dry malts, orange peel. Lightly sweet, with more citrus peel and old pine, some dried caramel. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with some oily pine, more rind, lightly toasted grains. Eh, so so overall. Perhaps a little past its prime.

September 2017 - Tasting at One Canada Square. Can thanks to Fergus. As 'Pipeworks Blood of the Unicorn '. Dark orange, hazy, still, foamy off-white head leaves full lacing. Aroma is resinous, chalky, dusty dried flowers. Body is light and frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is again quite dusty-spicy, earthy, resinous and pine hops. Quite decent overall.
