A double IPA that packs in the malt and hops.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Orange color, thick head, sticky lacing on the glass. Smell is bitter, hops, hops, hops. Flavor is more bitter hops, chewy, oily almost couldnít detect the alcohol but you could feel a thickness that let you know this was indeed a double IPA. This was pretty damn good and for 9% I killed it with ease. Nice. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 09-17-2012 22:07:02

Sampled at GABF. Nice hoppy and bitter IPA. Really enjoyable. Not so malty for a double. To the guy in front of me who called this "bad," you donít know what you are talking about.

500th IPA Rating, oh and what a great IPA it is.

Growler pours clear copper with thin near white head. The aroma offers up malt sweetened grapefruit and tangelo and some mango too. The taste is straight up yum. I get rich crisp fresh grapefruit and tangelo and a bit of mongo that rolls from flavor hops into more and more resiny bitterness to midway and then carries right into the finish. The background has a touch of sweet malts holding it together. Man! This is good.

Tasted as "Poor Vato" on a nitro tap. Awesome orange cream soda looks with massive guinessesque nitro head Aroma is huge melon and citrus hop Flavor is more of the same. Some initial sweetness with nice bitter bite on finish. Silky mouthfeel.

On tap at beachwood title Poor Vato. P: Just like a nitro stout this pours crazy with all the foam and such. A golden amber color with a thin white head (the foam had to settle though). S: Grapefruit, pine, grass, mango and orange. T: Melons, peaches, pineapples, mango, and grapefruit, light to medium bitterness. M: Very creamy. O: this is great although I still have to actually have regular poorsman I hope to actually find both together so I can compare.

Pint from nitro tap at the brewpub. What a weird concept. Iím not sure that an IIPA necessarily benefits from nitrogen, but it is definitely different and this was still a damn good beer. After a minute for the cascading to settle in my glass, Iím left with a burnt orange-boded beer with a perfectly symmetrical off white head. The hops are powerful, crisp and clear in the nose. Mainly grapefruit with assorted herbs. I canít get over the creamy palate, my mind isnít used to processing this mouthfeel with the extreme hoppiness. The grapefruity bite lingers with a long, dry finish. This is a seriously resinous beer, as well. Iíd definitely drink this again.

Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a white head. The nose is quite resinous with lots and lots of pine. A strong citrus peel and grapefruit. Just a touch of caramel sweetness. The flavor is a bit sweet, but there is so much pine. The nitro gives it a light water note, but the intense pine and grapefruit provide a nice flavor.
Earlier Rating: 2/21/2010 Total Score: 4
A: The pour is a hazy goldenrod color with a fluffy white head. S: Amazing citrus and tropical fruit notes. There is a ton of mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and orange, along with a mild pine aroma. This is very reminiscent to some of the other great west coast IPAs. T: Pretty much what you would expect from this beer considering the nose. A very fruity DIPA with quite a bit of sweetness, but at the same time, a very refreshing bitterness to it on the finish. M: The body is medium to full and thereís a fairly high level of carbonation. D: The beer doesnít taste or smell overly boozy, but you can definitely get a gauge for its strength after enjoying a couple pours. Still, a delicious beer and one that I would have again.

On tap at the brewery in Carlsbad. Pours a copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is huge dank weed, loads of fruit. The flavor is damn good; no heat, clean, huge balance, super dank, lingering bitterness, caramel, light oranges. Damn good.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2013 Normal Draft, perfect pale orange. Big pine, and fruity hops. Tons of bitter fruit flavor. Bitter and dry. Everything you want in a west coast IPA on nitro, cream gold pour and typical nitro cream head. Fresh citrus an fruit hop aroma, with some strong bitterness in the background. Thick and smooth body, very clean and easy to drink with some finishing buttering hops. Iíve never had an IPA on nitro before and Iím quite impressed
