Pizza Boy Hopricot Grove Apricot Wheat Ale
Pours golden orange and an off white head. Aroma opens up after a big really nicely with peaches coming in with balanced sweetness. Body is much lighter than expected, flavors of peach and then bitterness overwhelms the sweetness of the peaches. The lingering ending of a light watery peach kiss.

Pizza Boy Rye Beer Sucks!
Pours golden mostly clear with a lacey white head. Sweet orange zest is nice on the nose and flavor, just too light on the nose. Opens up nicely and light on the rye spiciness, which my palate prefers!

Pizza Boy Sunny Side Up - Guajillo Chili & Cinnamon
32 oz. crowler. Black body. Leggy with what looks like a lot of residual sugars. Smells of chocolate and a lot of cinnamon. A little bit of pepper. Mostly cinnamon, though. Taste has a lot of cinnamon. Chocolate. Very light peppers. Medium body. Medium carbonation. I was worried I wouldn’t like this, but it tastes pretty nice. Cinnamon is much stronger than the peppers.

Pizza Boy Mango Bomb
32 oz. crowler. Pours very murky. Like mango puree. Smells very alcoholic. Mango, but not a real juicy or sweet aroma. Just a combination of mango and alcohol. Taste is pretty nice up front. Hops are strong. Mango is pretty strong. But a most unpleasant astringent bitterness takes over and assaults the palate. Incredibly bitter. Very boozy. Not pleasant to drink.

Pizza Boy Sunny Side Up - Guajillo Chili & Cinnamon
Big aroma of roasted coffee. Chili peppers hit immediately, as does the coffee. Tingle of the peppers lingers and the cinnamon comes out at the end. Just a little bit watery but seems to thicken as it warms. Tap.

Pizza Boy Permasmile
750 mL unlabeled bottle poured into a snifter. Originally reviewed 7/16/2013. Hazy bright orange. Nice white head. Chunky foam on the surface. Retains pretty well. Smell has lots of nice apricot. Lemon peel acidity. A touch of funk, but light. Wheat and grain. Tastes of grain and fruit. Less distinctly apricot, but you still get it. Lactic sourness. A touch of wine in the finish. Lemony. Medium light, well carbonated. Moderate sourness. This was a remarkable treat to have driving through Harrisburg. I was expecting something far less nuanced than this. Pleasant acidity, great barrel character, just the right amount of fruit and dirty funkiness.

Pizza Boy Simcoe SamuRYE
Draft at Al’s / Pizza Boy in Enola. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (apricot, orange, grapefruit, resin). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. I have to give credit to PB for getting good hop expression...most Simcoe beers reek of onion, but this is a fruit bomb, as are most of their hoppy brews. Nice beer if a tad sweet.

Draft at Al’s / Pizza Boy in Enola. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers, melon, grapefruit, pineapple, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Another tasty hoppy PB brew here...very nice fruity aroma with low resin. Bit too tart in the mouth for me, but otherwise balanced well.

Pizza Boy Mango Bomb
Draft at Whole Foods, and with all due respect, the two raters prior to me should piss off. The pour was pulpy pineapple juicy with minimal head. the nose was intense mango, resiny hops, and mild fusels. The taste was an up front, intense mango flavor paired with resiny hops, then some late vodka flavor. The alcohol was well hidden, and the mango took center stage, with the incredible IBU level serving to "calm down" the gigantic ABV. All in all, this one was definitely unorthodox, but definitely delicious.

Pizza Boy Mango Bomb
On tap at the source 4/11/16. Pours like a smoothie of bile and spinach. Looks awful. Can't see through it even a little. Cloudy gone way too far and I like cloudy. Smells like green hops, citrus. Taste is green, ripe mango, tropical fruit, a bit of burn (probably because this is a glass full of yeast), green. It's not bad but what the fuck. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the source, wee hours, courtesy of either Al or Fish, I forget. Murky golden orange color. Aroma of mango on steroids. The most bitter beer I’ve ever had. Hard to take despite the fruit.
