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

My first Pizza Boy beer poured into a pint glass

L - Cloudy yellow and carbonation bubbles all over
S - Hop-forward nose with lots of pine and citrus
T - Same as nose, very downplayed notes of citrus and bready mouthful up front
F - Smooth body with moderate bitterness

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!

Floral nose, fresh, citrusy. Raw edge but refined overall. Solid choice.
