Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.

A - Pours yellow with a nice one finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky webs of lace down the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of fresh cut citric fruit, pine resin, doughy pale malt and a dash of sweetness. A bit slow to develop but pretty nice once it does.

T - Starts off with some mildly toasted light grain quickly giving way to hints of pine resin, citric fruit zest and some light sweetness. Finish is pretty clean with some light bitterness, not lingering for very long.

M - Medium-Light body with moderate carbonation. Light, hoppy feel makes it very easy to consume.

O - Another solid IPA. It has a good amount of flavor packed into a small package, while not destroying the palate like some of their others are known to do. Almost like a bigger version of All Day IPA.

Growler poured into a snifter. The brew appears a clear copper color with a white froth. Some sudsy patchy lace clings to the glass.

The smell is that of grass and citrus like grapefruit. Zest, pith and fruity with a touch of alcohol being noticed across the back and increases in character as it warms.

The taste seems a little green and yeasty with a fruity alcohol kick. Almost a melon or canteloupe fruit flavor mixing with grass.

This is a medium bodied and modestly carbonated offering. Overall decent, but not outstanding or even on point with other pizza boy hoppy offerings.

S-bread dough, citrus, pine, hint of sweetness, slight herbal
