Good pale ale that only fails at sticking out from the crowd - hops a little grassy, standard pine elements, finish with a slight herbal twinge. Malt pretty light / crackery.

Valley Road Enterprises / Pizza Boy Brewing Co. "Some New Kinda Kick"
$5/pint on tap @ McGillin's Olde Ale House, Philadelphia, PA on 9 July 2018

Notes: Is the name of this beer a reference to a Cramps song? If so that's a little odd as this thing doesn't have nearly the power or the energy of the Cramps, but whatev's. Nor is it really that original. It's OK, it's piney and citrusy and tropical and floral and herbal but it seems like there are so many different hops in there that they've all become muddled, falling in and around each other so that nothing really stands out. It's like an American pale ale that took too many steroids and got very muscular but not any smarter. Still, I kind of can't complain although I kind of am.... it doesn't have the finesse of a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale but it does have some brute hop strength, so I guess there's that. It's an OK pint for the price I guess but nothing special. Maybe I was just expecting a little more from Pizza Boy as they've put out much better stuff than this.
