3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Pizza Port, Carlsbad, CA. Pours a hazy yellow colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of heavy pungent herbal hops, fair amount of citrus and spiciness. Flavour is really heavy on herbal bitterness with some oregano notes, grapefruit, mild biscuit notes and grass. Medium bodied. Super hoppy spicy but not overwhelmingly bitter. Great.

"I don’t know if the name refers to this beer trying to be an imperial, cause it does a good job of it without the heaviness. HUGE pine and orange peel aroma and solid juicy hop profile and flavor. Minimal malts just to balance. Nice west coast ipa."

Pizza Port San Clemente Delusions of grandeur IPA... 4.3. Clear, amber body. Upfront fruit, tropical, mango and passion fruit. Delicious bitter finish, just enough malt character. Awesome stuff, best I’ve had from pp I’m a while!!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This looks fine. Not overly-hopped in the aroma but the flavor is quite aggressive. An extremely dry beer, especially in the finish, yet it has a bit of the Lagunitas-like sweetness to it as well. Great.

On tap at PP Carlsbad. Golden tangerine pour with a dense ivory head that left significant lacing. Dank, damp leafy qualities along with grapefruit pith, lemon zest and orange peel. Bitter, unripened citrus and evergreen. Amazing!
