In this beer blog, we are going to feature a beer from Pipeworks Brewery. It is their flagship beer, which is Ninja Vs. Unicorn Double IPA. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this small and upcoming Chicago base craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery. Let us get into this double IPA.
It has a slight cloudy golden color with a white constant head. The aroma has a heavy grapefruit notes. The taste has a nice grapefruit to citrus notes with a dry hop bitter aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable for a Double IPA.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Ninja Vs. Unicorn celebrates the epic battle two of the biggest hop-heads of lore. Brewed with over five pounds of hops per barrel, this unfiltered double IPA is sure to please the most discerning hop lover. Whether you’re rooting for the mythical horned horse or the deadly assassin of the east, we hope you’ll enjoy Ninja Vs. Unicorn.

Ending, this is a great beer. I love the hops they use in this beer. It is pretty well-balanced for being a double India Pale Ale. There is a nice malty backbone but I kind feel it should be stronger. I can live with it. I have to say for a beer that is in 22oz bottle. It is well worth the price. I have always felt beers in 22oz bottles are not worth the price. To me, this one lives up to the price. I recommend you trying this brew. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
