Kroney (154) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 27, 2013
Pours golden yellow clear with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is mostly citrusand tropical fruits with s little earthy pine. Flavor big orange and mangowith a almost no malt... but just enough to not make this taste like a fruit basket. Palate is a little oily and thick. Medium carbonation. Hasn’t lacing. Another great beer at PP in Carlsbad.

RedSox2004 (1232) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 9, 2013
Pours hazy orange yellow with a big frothy white head that retained well and left fantastic lace. Big grapefruit aromas accompanied by tropical citrus, mostly mango and tangerine, with a hint of a grainymalt foundation. Flavor is dominated by the grapefruit and tropical fruit, very bitter, with a wisp of graham cracker-like malt sweetness. Medium body, lively carbonation, creamy creamy smooth, and a crisp bitter finish.

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 9, 2013
On tap at Carlsbad PP a few months ago. Pours with clear golden hued body with a lasting and lace leaving white head. Aromas are huge tangerine, mango, kumquat, zest, tropical fruit. Bad ass hop aroma, with so much citrus zest! Low malt. Flavors are dank, medium perceived sweet hop fruit flavors, balanced bitterness, dry, lightly husky malt, supremely dank. Dry bodied, lively bubbles. Really good!!

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 25, 2013
On tap at brewery. Clear golden with a creamy white head. Nice big classic floral grapefruit, pine, and caramel aroma. Tastes of grapefruit with notes of orange and pineapple, caramel, and pine and finishing with a big grassy cereal grain flavor and a big bitter bite. Thick chewy palate. Well done.

Huge on sweet citrus. Taste of floral hops, citrus, grass, grain and caramel. Intensely bitter. Medium body and medium carbonation. The fantastic aroma is not matched by the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 30, 2012
28/12/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Pizza Port Tap Takeover. Dorata, limpidissima, viva, schiuma bianca abbondante e persistente. Naso pungente, molto intenso, note erbacee e di resina, leggero fruttato, agrumato. In bocca sorprende, fruttata con note di frutta tropicale e ananas, magnifica! Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. IPA magistrale, equilibrata in maniera perfetta. Super fresh!

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Tap at Toronado SD. Pours a low haze, glowing gold. Thin head. Nose is puppy breath, pineapple, cantaloupe, and a lot of white grapes- a character that is recurring with wet hop ales this year. Taste is very bitter, intense walnut and Brazil nut, some fruity notes like pineapple, peach, and more white grape juice. Very bitter, long finish. Aggressive, but enjoyable. Can’t really go wrong with a Pizza Port IPA.

brokensail (10785) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Clear golden orange pour with a white head. Strong pineapple and grapefruit aromas up front. A lot of floral and grassy notes, too. Some citric character, a bit of pine, and a light herbal quality. The flavor is lightly sweet and bready, but still plenty of grapefruit, floral, herbal, and pineapple hop notes. A mild bitterness, a bit of grass, and a hint of pine.
