This cloudy unfiltered looking beer has a very down to earth taste with a hoof grains and a please smooth citrus after taste. Very enjoyable beer!

16 is can dated 8/14, poured into 16 oz tulip.

A: slightly cloudy straw color, with an inch of head that maintained a thick ring throughout.

S: citrus hops, slight pineyness

T: citrus, pine, resin, with a lingering lemon peel bitterness.

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.

Overripe mango, Juicy Fruit gum, and wintergreen. Deep pine and dank. Honey and caramel maltiness.

Smooth and well balanced. Dank and tropical. It's one of my favorite Pizza Boy beers as of late.

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
