look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured a hazy amber from draft. Thin white head. Aroma is faint citrus and hops. A bit of soapiness. Unique earthy taste. Citrus and piny hops but not too bitter. Moderate body and carbonation. Easy to drink.

F: medium body, dry finish, lingering bitterness

O: nicely balanced IPA, easy drinking at 6%, with the feel of a bigger beer. Would certainly drink again. Great offering.

Pours a somewhat hazy golden orange with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Citrus hops, tropical fruits, fruity malts, resin, pineapples; really nice especially in the taste.

Overall a really nice session beer; would definitely buy this for BBQ's if I lived by Pizza Boy.

Can stamped 05/01/17

Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thick frothy layer on top. Aromas of mango puree, oily resins, tangerine, pine needles. Lots of mango, peach, and pulpy citrus, but it's less juicy, more West Coast in presentation. Zesty fruit with a slight grassy edge. Medium bodied, crisp, clean, and dry. Really nice IPA.

Pours a beautiful hazy bright yellow. Almost looks like pinnaple juice. But wait! It gets better! Nose is of fresh cut pinnaple, mango and lemon peel. Taste of fruit juices. Pinnaple, mango, light peach and mild citrus. A very juicy offering that has just enough of a bitter kick to keep it from becoming cloying. Medium body. Crisp and clean bitter citrus peel finish. Excellent beer

16oz pounder can poured into a Spoonwood Brewing snifter:

Look: Pours a nice hazy straw to orange color with roughly an inch of head present. Lacing is very present with great retention!

Smell: Tons of citrus, tropical fruits, some pine, and great hop notes!

Taste: Taste follows the nose. This is bursting with flavor for such a low ABV. Slight bitterness but nothing overwhelming. Really well done!

Feel: Medium bodied!

Overall: Very solid IPA from the crew at Pizza Boy! Really good flavor for such a low ABV! Glad I was able to score a few cans of this brew and I would revisit this one in a heartbeat!

Hazy golden-orange body with a sticky, soapy bone-white head. Aroma is a punch of tropical fruit; mango, papaya & citrus. Flavor is juicy, but some definite bitterness. Feel is slightly sticky, medium bodied, medium carbonation. Really solid IPA.
