Cloudy peach in color. Served in a nonic pint with a good inch or so of yellowy tinted head. Excellent retention. Light lacing. Very aromatic with lots of citrus. Orange and grapefruit dominate with some floral notes rounding it out. Flavor is less nuanced. Mild sweet. A blend of orange and lemon with a lot of biscuit malt. Aggressive, peppery carbonation. Lighter body. Overall, a pretty good beer. Full of hops, though a little rough around the edges.
Serving type: on-tap

The Weight gurgles from the growler apricot orange and slightly hazy. It's got that sunset effect in the pint glass, vibrant apricot at the base fading into dusky orange at the crown. The head is shallow and bone white, not much to notice but does leave some slick lace after each drink that follows back into the body.
Doughy and biscuity malts lay down an appropriate foundation along with, unless I'm mistaken, a soft wheaty tang. With that nonsense out of the way the nose is all pithy citrus and awesomely bright. Orange and grapefruit pith grab the malt base in a bear hug and won't let go. A little grassiness tries to sneak in but citrus is king of the hill. Mouthwatering.
Oh, there's got to be some wheat in here. Mildly sweet biscuits intermingle with that attention grabbing wheat. I've always enjoyed a touch of wheat in my pale ales, when you can find them. With that laid out this beer is still a hop showcase, citrus mostly. The orange and grapefruit sweeten up a bit on the palate. A bit of sugared grapefruit meets that wall of grapefruit and orange pith. Fresh cut grass buzzsaws through the finish. Muy Buenos!
The body has a light weight and is absurdly soft for a beer of 6%. There's a touch of sweetness that feels like it will linger but is sucked up immediately leaving a surprising bone dryness. That dryness accentuates the pithy bitterness to moderate+ levels. This is a drinker and a half.
When combined, the mouthwatering smell, heavily citric bitterness, and highly addictive drinkability/mouthfeel all make for an exceptional pale ale. It's only sold at the brewpub, only when it's on draft, in growlers, only, and it's still more accessible than it's closest local rival (6% pale ale) Zombie Dust. Honestly, I'd rather get a fantastic pizza and growler with no hassle than wait in line with nothing else to do but spend my money. Piece Pizza, I will see you again soon.

Enjoyed on tap at Piece. Served in a nonic pint.
A: Pours a chilled amber color with a thin white head forming on the pour. Recedes slowly to a thin ring leaving behind some lace.
S: Citrus with some light cracker malt backing. A hint of sweetness and dried grass.
T: More like the nose, but a touch of lingering bitterness which broke up the sweetness from the malts. Slightly dank as well with a kiss of citrus.
M: Extremely crushable. I could destroy a growler and then some. Light bodied with a medium carbonation and a very clean finish.
O: An enjoyable APA. Not in the upper echelon of APA's that I've had, but a great local APA that is extremely drinkable. I'll put this in the Daisy Cutter category. It's good and I'll definitely have a pint when it's back on, but I'll shoot of a Zombie Dust over either.
