Pours a very light copper color. White fluffy head stays for a minute, then fades to a thin ring. Nice patches of lace.

Nice hoppy nose. Some citrus, mango, with a slight caramel background. A faint aspirin note as well.

Pale malt base, a bit cracker like. Some citrus hop flavor. Hops seem a bit restrained. Finishes with a touch of sweetness and an herbal fade.

Medium body, lower carbonation. Alcohol seems hidden well. Seems more like a pale, but still tasty.

On draft at Piece. Single pint poured into a nonic glass for $6, 3/4/2014.

App- Clear straw-yellow body, two finger white head with good retention, thick rings of lacing.

Smell- Crisp pale malts, some grapefruit, oranges with a dash of pine

Flavour- Similar to nose. Grapefruit balances out the caramel breadiness of the pale malts, with a bitter but not overwhelming pine finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, slightly watery and not all that resinous, drinkable without any hint of ABV. Aftertaste is pine bitterness that doesn't linger long.

Overall- Solid APA. That's about all I can say. There's nothing bad at all about this beer, but it didn't impress either. I would rather drink Alpha King or Zombie Dust any day.

Tried Marketing Ploy from 3 Floyds awhile back as well as from Piece last weekend. Swear they are the same. Very interesting and enjoyable pale ale with a unique fruity character. Can't quite distinguish whether I was tasting a hint of apricot or mango or whether the unique character of this beer were from the hop combination.

A great summer ale and a brilliant name.

Wish I could find this in bottles.
