Pizza Boy West Shore IPA

Posted: July 1, 2015 in American IPA, Pizza Boy Brewing, Reviews

One of my biggest pet peeves about brewery websites is that they don’t have any information about their beers. The website for this brewery is a perfect example. It’s a very simplistic website that only shows what they’re brewing, but no information. Especially with so many people getting into craft beer, it’s helpful to hear the story behind the beer and the hops and malt used in the beer. I guess if you’re putting out good beer (like this brewery), you don’t really care. Rant over.

ABV: 6.5%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our custom-built, automated Braukon brewhouse allows us to brew cleanly, efficiently and consistently.”

Random: I still have to mow my lawn. The constant rain has been throwing a wrench into my plans.

This beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a very hazy, bright orange color with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was very fragrant with grapefruit and pine hops. After a few sniffs, I picked up some tropical fruit as well. Specifically, I got fresh mango. The taste was really bright with lots of citrus and grapefruit pith. Mango came through as well with some sweetness at the end from the malt. It had a medium thick body with high carbonation, which made it go down very easily. The finish was long and sticky with citrus and tropical fruit. This is the second beer that I’ve had from this brewery out of Enola, PA and it was very impressive. This IPA was very drinkable and citrusy and is worth a try if you see it on tap.
