Draft at pizza port ocean beach. Yummy orange citrus hops are balanced very well against a sweet bread malt. This was a great beerto wash down some Carlsbad pizza. I could drink a few more of these anytime.

Pours transparent golden orange with a big white head. Nose is pine, citrus and caramel, all very faint though, not to strong. The taste is also low key well balanced bitter. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, light body and a long finish. Nice session tasting pale with a not so session abv.

A nice light pale ale. Very floral and fresh tasting. The growler must have been filled recently. Poured a light orange and had a nice bitter bite to it. Good sparkle to it too.

31/10/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Dorata carica, lievemente torbida, schiuma biancastra, abbondante e persistente. Al naso un magnifico bouquet di aromi, luppolo grande protagonista, pungente, con note agrumate nette, resinose, pinose, e leggermente erbacee. In bocca č amara senza compromessi, con un finale lungo e secco. Corpo medio, carbonazione abbondante. Altra eccellente APA targata Pizza Port.

A Sim rate (on tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad): So yeah, at Pizza Port Carlsbad one drinks Kung Fu Elvis. Unfortunately, the cask version dry-hopped with Citra & Simcoe was out. But this is no boobie prize. Sweet, bitter hop aroma that just makes me want more. Flavour is California with some extra hops thrown in. Bitterness remains in the finish and keeps me lovin’ it. Yum!
