Keg at Pizza Port Carlsbad, 21/04/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white swirl which emulates a map of Africa. Nose is bitter grapefruit, citric pithdom, straw, lemon rind, hops, pine. Taste comprises sharp grapefruit, mineral bite, pine resin, orange pith, straw, mandarin. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close. Decent approachable DIPA, the 10% doesn’t really make its presence known!

64oz growler from Pizza Port Carlsbad pours a clear honey color. Aroma is similar to PtE. Up front dank hops, resinous pine, with tropical fruits shining through. Pineapple, ripe orange, grapefruit. Some peach and apricot notes. First sip smacks you with hop bitterness followed by grapefruit rind, sweet tropical fruits with a solid malt backbone and lingering bitterness on the palate. A tinge of booziness but not overwhelming. Overall a solid west coast DIPA and the closest thing to PtE that Ive had. This really is the Poorman’s PtE with Pliney having a superior aroma and all around more well balanced but this is not too far off.

Leighton (10675) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
On tap at CBC Clerkenwell during the Pizza Port Tap Takeover - London. Pours clear gold with a fine, white cream cap. Lots of sweet-smelling citrus in the aroma, sweet bread, orange, mango and light pine. Big sweet flavor with moderate alcohol punch, plus lightly dry grapefruit, orange, some pine. Medium to full in body with fine to average carbonation. Fairly resinous to finish with pale malt sugars, orange, tangerine, melon and grapefruit. Lovely stuff. Ballsy but drinkable.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2013 Keg, half pint. Clear orange with small white head, decent lacing. Big big caramel smell, can smell it from several feet away. Taste is huge caramel and mango. Resin and pine finish - astringency present. Alcohol well hidden. Excellent stuff. My first truly world class American beer.
