Cho-Saiko is radical in Japanese surf slang. This is OB’s house Double IPA. Cho-Saiko is brewed year round as long as there is fermentation space. It is a big beer with big hop character. Dry hopped with five different hops to add to the hop experience. 1.082 SG 1.010 FG

Very good. One of those that will knock you down if you’re not careful. Very nice malty aroma that leads to a malty taste with a nice hop bitterness to balance out things. Well done.

Hops, hops and more hops. I love them too. But when there is no balance or reason to them it is like eating a super spicy dish that has nothing else to offer.

Nice DIPA. Copper orange color, with a strong hoppy aroma and flavor. Probably my favorite sample at Stone’s 14th Anniversary Festival. So good, I went back for seconds.

Half pint on tap@Port O.B.: Pale amber color with a small offf-white head. Aroma is fruity with citrus and a hint of pine sap. Rich caramel, tropical fruit start followed by citrus and a slow building, lingering orange rind bitter finish. Full body is smooth and creamy with moderate carbonation.s

On tap at Pizza Port Solana Beach. Deep golden color, plenty of lacing with medium carbonation. Robust citrus aroma with grapefruit, orange rind, pine sap and alcohol. Medium malt base, not to sweet or dry. Finishes with strong bitterness and lasting resin flavors. Your typical West Coast DIPA to expect from Pizza Port. Not as good as Poor Man’s though. Very tasty.

On tap at Solana PP. Orange golden color with thin white head. Plenty of rich hops and citrus in your nose. Medium body. Resiny bitter hops. Good dose of sweet maltiness for balance. Great long finish a bit bitter and sweet. Loved it.

Growled shared by Alex (Masterski) by way of the m’fer Shane (HH84). Thanks to both of these guys! A - Pours copper, large frothy cream-colored head, lots of sticky lacing and a nice thin cap on top. This is how a DIPA should look! S - DANK as all hell, lots of hops, lesser amount of malts, woah. This one makes my saliva turn into cementl...woah. Sweetness first. Bitter, then more hints of bitterness, topped by a bittery bitter note. Toasted malts. I think this one has it all, impressive. M - Medium, good carbonation, oily finish. D - I’m impressed. This kills the RR Registration I recently had and is right up there with Citra. Thanks once again to Alex and Shane! Serving type: growler

Now this is my scene. Its like the old days up the coast 20 miles or so. Lightly hazed orange body. Not much head. The all-star game was boring, but cho saiko kept me going. Orange-alcohol but not like a cleaning solution. Tasting... where is the alcohol? 3 pints later... Oh there it is, whew! Medium full bodied pleasing and a real sneaker-upper.
