On tap @ Pi Pizzeria. Nice amber pour with a dense khaki head. Bright floral, herbal, and citrus peel hops. Intense toast and bread as well. Some caramel, pine, and grapefruit rind. Good bitterness to the flavor. Tons of pine, grapefruit, and orange peel. Really good floral quality to it as well; quite aromatic. Solid malty base of bread, caramel, and toasted biscuits. Well done.

Pours a deep golden with a nice foamy white head. Aroma is slightly grapefruity yet pleasant. Taste is bitter at first but finishes nice and smooth. Man, this is a good pale ale. Too bad this is only at PI’s Pizzeria in St. Louis. I’d drink this all day.

Rating #3200 - nice to have a milestone from a local favorite. Pours fairly clear golden / orange with a white head. The aroma has light funky hops, green onions, sweet malt, some toast, caramel and cellar must. It has a medium smooth body with a light amount of prickly carbonation. The flavor starts with some toast, crackers, spice pine and citrus zest. The finish has lots of dry grapefruit. Really nice APA here.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 Tasted on tap at the brewpub as part of a sampler flight. It was labelled as Pi Citra Ale. It poured a clear golden colour with weak white head. A nice, true-to-style American Pale Ale with additional tropical and melon aromas. Some off, vegetal, tomato plant notes from the hops, not exactly pleasant. Malty sweet, medium body and carbonation, tangy aftertaste. Not great but probably fine with pizza, which was the aim.

On tap at the brewpub. Comes golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus, grass, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, other tropical fruits, pine, and caramel malt. Light and easy to drink.

Tap @ Pi STL. Pours a hazy orange appearance with a light brown head. Resiny, mild ganja, somewhat piney, grapefruity, herbal aroma. Soft but assertive resiny, ganja, piney hoppy, mild citrusy, spicy, toasted malty flavor. Super easy drinker. Nice stuff.

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Half pint at 4 Hands. This was very much a hop forward beer. Citrus hops that had to be Cascade and Centennial. Malts are soft and are pale. A bit of applesauce. A nice beer.
