Pipeworks Unicorn’s Revenge double IPA at the Tribes Beer Fest.
A delightful true double, coming in at 10%, which this beer drinker feels is necessary to define a true double IPA.
This beer hits off with massive tropical fruit on the nose, and then coasts into a remarkably balanced taste on the tongue with a toasty, almost woody sourness of malty, hoppiness with just a hint of oily mouthfeel.
Pipeworks has a winner in this beer, simply because they’ve created a new experience of extreme balance.
As the beer warms, there is an almost rotted fruit smell that transitions to a ridiculously warm experience on the taste buds that hits all the senses and enlivens almost anything, I suppose. I’m drinking this with fried cheese curds, and I almost feel as though I’m consuming a tropical drink on a beach somewhere.
