Pours amber with white head. nose is striking for piney hop. Medium bodied with grassy, wet hop finish with some subtle citrus notes. Biting bitter finish spoils the delicate mix to some degree.

Growler. Pours a clear copper with a small off white head. Floral pine hop aroma. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet hop and light finish. Easy to drink, a very good American pale ale from Pizza Port.

On tap at carlsbad location... Pours a coppery reddish amber tint and topped with a thin film of coaoy white head... Grassy citrus with a touch of yeast involved. Not too special with a hint of pine with biscuity caramel malt... Flavors are crisp citrus mostly with a light grassy bitterness. Soft to medium bodied with light semi-crisp carbonation. Ok and justthat.

This poured a medium orange color with a beige head. Aroma was citrusy and piney hops with some cracker and plae malt in the backround. Taste was nice tropical fruits, a bit subdued, not very bitter, some maltyness and biscuts there too. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pizza Port Carlsbad Edition. On tap at The Brickskeller during its "Whet" Hop Ales event with Tomme Arthur.
Pours a light orange color with some copper hues. Big white head and crazy amounts of lacing. Nose brings some light fresh, green hops. No particular varietal really stands out as to pine or citrus, it’s more of the "green" fresh hop flavor. The same is said of the taste, where there’s a nice green, wet bitterness with a light body and somewhat low carbonation. Moderately dry finish. Quite good.
Serving type: on-tap

RBESG 2010, draught at Brasserie 4:20
Red-amber color; creamy head. Nice perfumy aroma, fruity hops, mango, light phenols, wax...
Quite strong body, caramel flavor, strong bitterness, some hop oils and resins, but not fresh as it should be (it’s already 6+ months old).

Draft. Poured at Toronado San Diego into a pint glass a orange ambe color with a fluffy white head. Nice lace. Danky, piney aroma of hops in the nose. Sweet start gives way to building hoppy bitterness. Nice medium mouthfeel. Decenlty solid wet hop.

A: The pour is a clear, golden orange color with a dense white head and some sticky lacing.
S: Wow, lots of citrus aromas to this one. Tons of grapefruit along with pineapple and bitter pine hops. Really no malt whatsoever.
T: A nice bitter bite of pine and grapefruit peel. Great grapefruit and pineapple flavors are present as well and provide a well rounded and dominating hoppiness.
M: The body is medium with a fairly high level of carbonation and a nice crisp finish.
D: This beer was just fantastic. So easy to drink and wonderfully done hopping. I had no problem drinking my glass of this.
