Poured from a crowler

Pours a nice light golden straw color. Fluffy head that lingers.

Smell is light. Nice citrus. Grapefruit obviously, light on the smell though.

Great IPA. Bursting with citrus. Juicy, not overwhelming bitterness. Nice and easy.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Really good.

Overall a really great beer. Great flavor, mouthfeel, and body. Very sessionable.

Pour is a faintly hazed straw yellow with a small amount of tight white head. Nose smells of huge mosaic hops, tons of grapefruit and tropical fruit hop notes, light grain up front. Taste gets a little more resinous. Still a ton of grapefruit and tropical fruit hops, has some grain notes up front, touch of sweeter malt, root beer note, light to moderate bitterness, well carbonated and a lighter body.

Nice looking beer. Nose is, surprisingly, wads of citrus. Pretty much all grapefruit, of course. Flavor brings much of the same. Mild salty tone. But mostly it's the grapefruit that shows. Feel is a bit high on the bubble factor. Way easy to drink. This is good stuff. I like it. And I like the lower abv too.

Fresh growler from trade. Thanks! Pours a mostly clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is divine. All big citrus hops and sweet grapefruit. Flavor is a nice prickly bitter up front and sweet grapefruit hops on the way down. Very little malt backbone on this one, which is not surprising given the 4.6% ABV. That keeps from any huge flavor punch but a nice taste profile for something so light. Plenty of bitter lingering in what is left of your Palate. Very light and sessionable, prickly carbonation. Man does this smell good. Crisp summer beer for sure.

Draft offering at Als served in a matching Pizza Boy tulip shaped pint glass. Thw brew appears a clear yellow color with a white froth that fades to a thin film. A full wall lace sticks to the glassware.

The aromatics are pretty awesone with citrus hops blending perfectly into the vibrant scent of grapefruit zest. A fairly mild grain presence and alcohol feel are hiding behind the grapefruit-like juiciness.

The flavor is a little watery conpared to what you might expect based on the nose. Some herbal hops are present blending into a mild rind and zest of grapefruit juice. As it warms up, it gets lightly grassy.

This is a medium to light bodied brew. It boasts a modest amount of carbonation. For having a slightly watery feel, it is downright crushable and something I could see myself drinking several glasses of at a time.

Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden/Pizza Boy Brewing in Enola, PA

A: Pours a lightly hazy golden apricot in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation and some orange + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer along with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: As expected, there are moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit and citrus/grapefruit pith over a light aroma of slightly sweet caramel malts.

T: Similar to the smell, the taste is also dominated by grapefruit. Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of grainy and slightly caramel sweet malts with moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit and citrus/grapefruit pith hops which contribute a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Slightly lighter than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Easy to drink, refreshing, and definitely a sessionable IPA - I really enjoy the citrus/grapefruit flavors in my IPAs so I was a fan of this one.
