Thanks to bl00 for this one from NBS BIF #007. 16oz can poured into 10oz fluted tulip. Poured a clean, clear, bright medium gold color that had about a half-inch of white head that had moderate retention and light lacing.

The aroma was mostly citrus and pine hops, with a light grain scent in the background. I got a wee bit of a bublegum note too.

Very similar taste profile, light malts and bright hops. A tiny bit of sweetness at the finish.

The body was the typical medium of the style, and had a finish between semi-dry and semi-sweet.

Drinkability was very good, this is the type of IPA you can knock back several of. Overall, a nice take on the basic American IPA, worth trying if you get the chance.

Pizza Boy Get a Grip IPA 6.5% ABV.
Look: golden, slight haze, white puffy head, good carbonation, lots of lacing in the glass
nose: citrus hops, orange
tongue: citrus, orange, hops, floral
feel: Light and frothy

They must use similar hops for all of their IPA's and pale ales, but it has this same very citrusy and orange taste to it.
I can't really tire of it, so if I am in the mood for a good IPA I get them alot of the time. Yah, really nice drinking. It feels
like it could be a session beer eventhough this one is a little higher ABV than some session beers.
