3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler... Pours lightly-hazed and golden with orange highlights and no head. The nose offers grapefruit, pine and a light musky component. Medium-bodied with laid-back carbonation. There’s a ton of juicy hop flavor, but very little bitterness. Just sour, fruity and bright. Stone fruit, key lime and lemon stand out. Crisp, sour finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

Growler thanks to Bruce. Pours a cloudy orange with small off white head. The aroma is nice floral hop, apricot, and citrus. Thin mouthfeel with tart fruit, light grapefruit, lemon, and nice tart finish. Really enjoyed this one.

8oz pour at the brewery pours a murky mild gold. Smells crazy, apricots, mangoes, grapefruit. Loads of juice. Flavor is fruity, juicy, tart. Tart finish. Very interesting.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014-08-15. Hazy yellow body modest white head. 3++ Aroma of lemon like fruit and light funk. 7++ Flavour is refreshingly tart, eye opening, lemon and lime citrus. Average plus bodied palate, crisp effervescent carbonation. 3++ Wow. Hard to describe but the mix of the citrusy hops with the tart/sourness is close to perfect, making this eminently drinkable. Loved it. Amusingly I didn’t identify it as having any grape character, perhaps because I wasn’t looking for it. Huh. Growler labeled Hop Tart 3.0 at Campground Brewdown

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler at Campground Brewdown, thanks perigrinari. Medium off-white head atop hazy amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, some lemon. Taste is moderately sweet, orange, some lemon, quite tart. Light body, light acidity. No idea where the "hop" in the name comes from, but the "tart" is easy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap and from a growler. Pours hazy golden with white head. Aroma is full of citrus, funk, and a twinge of dank hops. Also get a bunch of white wine grape in there as well. Taste brings more citrus and acid, followed by a decent bit of hoppiness; nothing too crazy, but enough to know that it’s there. Super bright and crisp. Get some more grapes in there as it warms. Man, this is a real treat. Palate is medium with a decent amount of carbonation. Finishes tart with some quick bitterness. This was easily the standout beer from Pizza Boy when I was there; I only wish they had more good beers like this on tap. Really well done.
