UPDATED: SEP 10, 2017 Pushing it for an amber ale in my opinion. As many breweries do this day.. rank a Low gravity imperial red IPA and call it an amber to get the ratings. I am a fan of tongue buckler. This is a spot on low gravity version. More tropical hop notes. Nose is very hoppy, taste is hoppy IPA like with a red malt backbone. Light body. Overall not impressed compared to other pipe works brews I’ve had.

Palme (4812) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2017
1 pint can from Whole Foods. This one pours a darker copper brownish colored cloudy looking body. On the top there’s a really big lasting beigeish head leaving a rush of lacings and dots down the sides of the glass. Nosevise it’s a well hopped one for sure. Lots of fresh piney zesty tones her. Red berries, a nice hint of dark caramel. Yeah, this smells really good this. My kind of aroma. In the mouth it has a nice oily texture and it’s about average on the carbonation. Hoppy and caramelly in the taste. Dark caramel with red apple, blue grapes, hop pellets and something slightly herbal. Quite lightdrinkable and definitely tasty. 13.06.2017

BroSpud (2215) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAY 24, 2017
16oz can. Pours a clearish amber with an off white head. Lots of malt notes with a decent hop presence as well. Lov the name of this one though I was expecting some over the top abv but this is relatively tame at 6.5 which is good because I’m ready for another.

weark (835) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - MAY 15, 2017
Canette achetée à La Mise En Bière - De couleur rouge rubis avec une mousse beige presque fauve - Au nez beaucoup de fruité et de résine, agrumes, pamplemousse, orange amère, goyave, fruits de la passions, le malt arrive quand même à se faire de la place avec une pointe de caramel et de torréfaction mais vraiment léger - En bouche toujours autant de houblons, c’est encore plus résineux, pin, torréfaction, agrumes, herbacé vraiment bien fait - Corp léger, amertume forte, carbonation correcte, amère et résineux, final amère herbacé long - Ca envoie du houblon, pas très équilibré, une bière rafraîchissante même avec une pointe de torréfaction

473ml can (Beerfox, Riga)
Sweet caramelly aroma. Deep red, spongy head. Sickly sweet caramelly taste. Fizzyish palate, but sticky because of the sugars. Pretty heavy and less-drinkable IPA. Hop dominated, but boring.

Canned, 473 ml, courtesy of Max. Shared with him and JFK10000. Pours cloudy amber with small off-white head. Malty, caramel, moderate hoppy, pine, citrus, fruit. Moderate bitterness in finish. Medium bodied. Not a big fan of style but this is nice one.
