January 6th, 2012 - I’d like to think Pizza Port Carlsbad’s 547 Haight is a testament to the challenge of brewing a muscular, distinctive red brew, but amongst PP’s other offerings, it didn’t offer me much to take notes on. It’s hoppy, sure and sharp in both nose and flavor, where the caramel sweetness oozes, ribbons of caramel draped over hop cones. The rich grains and sugars are a welcome push-back against a hopper edge, with an aroma not unlike a brewery on brew day - botanical, but candied. Good stuff!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
30/12/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Ambrata carica, abbastanza torbida, schiuma biancastra sporca, abbondante e molto persistente. Al naso sentori di malto e luppolo, fortemente erbaceo, con note resinose e pinose. In bocca è molto amara, con una nota di caramello a sostenere il tutto e un buon corpo, i 10 gradi non si sentono per niente! La carbonazione è molto abbondante. Non male.
