16 oz. can poured into a globe glass for tasting. This new or atleast newly canned brew from Pizza Port pours a hazed golden with an inch of nearly white foam. Offers good retention and lace.

Aroma is a bit soapy/hoppy in a good way with light citrus and some tropical notes. A bit clearer with some exposure. Taste follows and has an understandably thin finish given the light ABV. Touch of lemon of note on the finish and offering a firm feel and carbonation.

Nice and hoppy for a lighter bodied brew though not aggressive. No bitterness on the finish to note. There is nothing 'India' about this beer as the IPA moniker continues to substitute for the presence of aroma hops to my disdain. Sense a touch of wheat here. Nice, pleasant, easy yet a bit boring.

Call it what it is. A Hoppy Pale Ale. As an IPA I would give this a zero(;)). Alas I think I like it better than Alesmith X, or maybe not...And now comes Stone go to IPA on its heels...

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Hazy lemonade shade of yellow, bright white head forms with a thicket of nice bright head forming thick. Have no fear the nose is as dank as any really hoppy beer I've ever had, big citric notes, lush Mary Jane, cider like acidity note, herbal/vinous hops growing out of the glass. A bit of floral and garlic in the nose on the backend if you keep digging. Flavor has an absurd amount of herbaceous, garlic, and onion resinous hops, bitter bite of hops hits with each sip, it must pair well with Funions. Light resinous hop oils lay on the palate, bitterness dries out the finish of each sip lighter bodied session IPA in 16 ounce cans. Someone needs to share some Two Hearted Ale in this sized can with the folks on the West Coast.
