Tap at Ocean Beach Pizza Port. Sticky sweet with losts of pine and resinous hops. Good, but the problem is with so much competition around this can’t compete. Would be a god send here in Australia though.

on tap at pizza port ocean beach a couple months back. pours a hazy, orange gold with a thick, creamy off-white head and thick lacing. aroma is a bit different than i expected, very herbal hops, grass, pine esters, and pine sol cleaner with hints of orange peel. my notes read "odd". flavor is much of the same, very different from most west coast ipas, with herbal hops, orange seeds, lemon pledge, and a bit of dank grass. palate is medium bodied with light carbonation and light bitterness. overall, an odd ipa that quite a bit different than what i expected.

Draft. A hazy red beer with a creamy off-white head. The aroma has strong notes of hops lending it notes of grass. The flavor is very sweet and very spicy - cinnamon and cloves are readily picked up, combined with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a dry and very bitter finish.

Fad: Orange let uklar øl med et lille skumhoved. Duften er præget af en stor mængde maltsødme der bakker en fin humleprofil op. Smagen er igen humlet men det er maltsødmen der dominere smagsbilledet, sammen med en tilpas humlebitterhed der gør øllen meget drikbar. Fin øl.
