Pipeworks Reaper v Unicorn

Pipeworks Unicorn Reaper10% ABV. Rye Barleywine Style Ale from Pipeworks Brewing Co. in Chicago, IL. I love every opportunity to try something new from its “Unicorn versus” series! Pours murky dark amber with a frothy head that lasts well with decent retention throughout. This brew has a pronounced hop aroma on the nose along with caramel malts, juicy citrus, tangerine, and earthy toffee. The palate is greeted by some bitterness which attempted to combat the massive rich malt and spicy rye undertones, and then finishes off with modest sweetness from the bready and caramel malts. This beer seems to fit the right profile for the rye barleywine style while giving off that classic Pipeworks flavor which is some of that sweet and delicious forward malt and hop profile.
