Finally got my hands on some Pizza Boy... picked up a handful of cans from Oakhurst Beverage outside of Harrisburg... Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is hazy straw gold, head is off white with fine bubbles with good dense presentation and at least 1 inch deep, good lacing on the glass sides and excellent retention on top.

Smell is very good with blend of hops - subtle citrus, but stronger earthy, dank, and pine notes.

Taste is similar simple but good blend of hops, a bit more malt and light softness from the wheat: hops are earthy, piney, dank, hint of citrus but then a notable minty flavor which could be my perception; malt is simple, not detracting, some light toasty notes but not much more.

Mouthfeel is crisp, moderate carbonation, solid bitterness.

Overall a solid wheat/hazy/NE ipa - not overly hoppy, bitter or sweet just good balance of hop aroma/flavor and malt and bitterness.

Pale straw color, whispy head. Not much on the nose outside of some grassy hop. Taste is tad too bitter for me, lots of grapefruit rind & strong herbal hop, lacks balance

Can into pint glass. Pours a hazy straw color with a coarse off-white head that quickly reduces to a spotty film. Initial impression is pine and citrus rind, with a pronounced but not unpleasant bitterness throughout. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky, but on the thin side at the same time; carbonation is light. Finish is more of the same, leaving a peppery bitterness in the throat. A good but not great IPA from Pizza Boy.
