On tap at Krugel's today.... $4.00 for a shaker pint pour.

It's a very murky, hazy golden hued brew. Head is a thin layer of fine white foam, with solid lacing left behind. Aroma has lots of rindy citrus, especially grapefruit. Body is a solid medium, and it is rather smooth on the tongue.

This one is quite light on the malt, with a bit of crackery action being all I can find. What it does have is lots of citrus. Apricot, tangerine, pineapple and some grapefruit meld together in a tasty mix of pithy hopping. Quite nice, all in all.... Prosit!

Gray-hued, light yellow-orange, pulpy grapefruit juice appearance with no head to speak of, just the thinnest of white crowns.

Juicy aroma and taste with sweet tangerine, papaya and a bitter grapefruit rind aftertaste.

Full bodied, slightly creamy mouthfeel with a touch of carbonation and prickliness. Solid.

Ho hum, another Northeast IPA. Not really. Pours opaque orange like a NEIPA should. Smells of orange and mango. Taste of delicious, juicy citrus, orange grapefruit and pineapple. Definitely a winner.

A: Deep hazy orange hue. White head that dissipates into lingering bubbles.
S: It actually smells like orange juice.
T: Orange juice and fruitiness initially that fades into a sharp pine bite.
F: Full bodied with some bitterness on the finish.
O: This is awesome. Maybe one of Pizza Boy's best IPAs to date.
