This full frontal EXPOSED me to flavor. It left me Naked! It tasted like beaver. That is, if beaver was full bodied, well balanced, and good. Perhaps not the best piece pizza brew but they're all decent. I always recommend trying all of them.

Bottoms up!

Growler fill from the brewery poured into a Tulip glass.

A: Deep amber/ruby opaque color. Pure white head of 2 finger head, not very dense though. Good retention and lacing.

Smell: Floral, piney, some tropical fruits, mango/pineapple/orange/lemon zest.

Taste: Doesn't quite live up to the aroma. A little malty. Not very bitter or dry.

Mouthfeel: Clean and crisp with moderate carbonation, a tad sticky on the finish, not very dry or wet but easy to drink.

Overall: Solid APA from a local brewery. I'd have this again, although they had a better offering (Camel Toe) at the brewery that wasn't available in growlers. I'm satisfied polishing off this growler with my pizza - above average brew. Don't seek it out but give it a try if you're there.

On tap at Piece, served in a pint glass.

A: Clear brass with a small white head.

S: Nice fresh citrus aroma. Cream, orange peel, grapefruit, a bit of mango.

T: Light pithy bitterness, clementine, papaya, light cracker malt. Very citrusy with a nice clean malt base.

M. Light-bodied, creamy feel.

O. I was pleasantly surprised. A really nice, citrusy APA with a good feel to it.

First had: on tap at the brewpub

Review from notes. Slightly hazy peach-amber pour with a small foamy white head; moderate retention and lacing. Nice aroma, citrus and pine hops slightly edge out the caramel malt sweetness. This is reflected in the taste: citrus hops, fresh grass, wort, caramel malts. It's a pretty typical APA, and that's not a bad thing. Light-medium body, easily drinkable.
