Big hop nose, loads of citrus and lime zest. Not a fan of Citra hops, but this is the most well done I have tried. Super drinkable, tons of hop flavor, not too bitter or harsh, truly a great sessionable beer. keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Very light and crisp. Citrus in the flavor and aroma. A bit of malt sweetness but mostly the lemony feel. Quite clean and refreshing. This would be great at a wedding, light, crisp and clean. rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2010

Pizza port ball and chain. growler thanks to my man tim..... Pours a medium copper penny transaprent orangey brownpour
with a thin to medium just off-white head... Aroma of crisp citrusy
and dankness all for the very hop forwardness for a an american
pale..... Flavors are much of the same with an emphasis on west coast
tropical fruitiness, not as much as th aroma suggests, but nice
nonetheless. Small bready malt backbone to coincide with the aforementione. Small to medium bodied with adequate carbonation.
Tasteful and light between all the heavy hitters. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 8, 2010

On tap @ Ocean City Pizza Port TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Appearance: Clear golden with a nice white head and some lacing
Aroma: Fruity and citrus
Taste: Fruits and citrus. Borderline too fruity
A nice APA, clean and crisp. Easy drinkability.
Growler shared at DLD. I think Kan brought it? Pours a nice glowing amber hue, maybe a shade or two darker with frothy offwhite head atop that stays moderate sized, soapy lacing coats my glass. Aromas are bready malts, pale malts, grains, moving into bigger citrus and resinous pine, florals and grass. Surprisingly quite piney, with lemons, grapefruit bringing up the tail end. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, preaching fairly large hop profile: lemon, grapefruit, resinous pine, some fruity peach and moving into some light malty backbone with bread, toast, and grains. Finish dries out with bigger citrus and pine, a healthy hopping takes this bad boy into the finish. It’s pretty damn hoppy for an APA. I liked it, but around some of the other beers of the day it could easily be left out. Upper tier APA in my opinion.
