One of the most pungent aromas I’ve ever smelled upon cracking open a bottle-- you would have though it was a 22oz container of candied peaches and melons, packaged in hibiscus tea, it’s that tropical and fruity smelling.
But then you pour what looks like a pretty "normal" beer-- light, lagery color, mostly clear.
And then the taste resembles neither the appearance or the smell-- sharp earthy, gritty, bitterness with a relatively light mouth feel. It doesn’t feel as thick or syrupy as Ninja v Unicorn or Blood of the Unicorn.
A really interesting IIPA. I wish they’d balanced out the bitterness with a bit more of the sweet, but it’s really hard to complain about, for any true hop lover-- especially as long as you keep breathing in deeply as you drink (the smells really interact with the flavors heavily in this one).

This is an outstanding Imperial IPA from Pipeworks! The small and taste are full of spicy fruit finishing with a good bitterness. The feel is what you’d expect from an IPA, medium and carbonated well. I have yet to drink a bad IPA from these guys. Keep doing what you’re doing.
