Draught at Pizza Port, Carlsbad. Hazy pale golden beer with a nice lasting white head. Hoppy grapefruit aroma, citrus, grassy, floral, mango, pine apples, oranges, some hay. Hoppy grapefruit flavor, grassy, citrus, pine apples, floral, mango, pine apples, quite bitter. Long bitter finish with citrus, pine apples, grass and some mango. Really nice.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Light body. Citrus and, no surprise, grapefruit essence. Spruce. Not that bitter, very easy to drink. I love this emerging grapefruit IPA trend from the San Diego area breweries.

Blairgus (2415) - California, USA - MAR 8, 2014
8 Mar 2014, tap at Pizza Port San Clemente. Light yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is all grapefruit juice. Thin body and fizzy. Grapefruit pulp. Not terribly bitter. Enough sweet malt to balance it. Still, the name promised more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

frankieg (3) - la jolla, California, USA - FEB 2, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2014 Draft toronado. Minimal head, crystal clear light gold. Palate is very light, refreshing, and juicy. High carbonation and very fizzy. Hoppy but not bitter. This is a beer I can drink all day on a hot day. Main taste is citrus and slight biscuit, but no malt.

Mortlach (955) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 7, 2014
06/01/2014 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Pizza Port Tap Takeover 2nd edition. Dorata, limpida, schiuma abbondante, non molto persistente. Naso esplosivo, agrumi, resina, freschissima, davvero impressionante. In bocca è amara decisa, gli 8 gradi non si percepiscono minimamente, si lascia bere bene, con un finale secco e pulito. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. A lungo andare risulta un po’ monotona e stancante, ma i primi sorsi lasciano il segno.

@Carlsbad. Clear golden color with white head. Big citrusy grapefruit, pale malt aromas. Average mouthfeel. Bitter grapefruit rind, dusty pale malt flavors with mild floral hoppage___weak

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pours clear, yellow-gold, lightly effervescent, with a white cream top. The aroma holds pithy citrus, pine needles, suggestions of grapefruit. The grapefruit character really comes through in the flavor. It’s not too bitter. Lots of spruce notes, some grapefruit flesh and rind. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Mildly resinous on the finish with more juicy grapefruit, spruce, modest pale malt sweetness, hints of alcohol warmth. Novel .

Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Clear golden pour with a white head. Light pine and hop bitterness with some floral hops with grapefruit and citrus rind in the aroma. Taste is clean pine and light bitterness up front followed by some sweet malt and finishing with juicy grapefruit. Clean, lightly coating mouthfeel. The grapefruit is very well done and nicely compliments the beer. Good one.

Growler shared by Ed5388 during the IPA tasting, I think he wanted to get me drunk to take advantage of me. Poured a hazed orange body with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma is dank, bad citrus fruits, wet bread and old orange slices. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a long lingering flavor from the bitter finish. Flavor of dry citrus rinds, dankenss, dry grassy hops, earthiness. Solid stuff here.
