3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Pizza Port Carlsbad... Poured hazy golden orange with a white-ish head. This was husky with a decent malt presence. Hops were resinous, earthy, and spicy. Reminded me more of a NW IPA rather than a West Coast IPA. Hints of citrus and pine too, but not totally in your face with hop power and presence.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Pizza Port San Clemente. Pours a hazy amber with 1/2" white head. Aroma is grassy, hop forward. Some pine and resin in there. Taste is a more subdued IPA for PP but really nice and refreshing. Citrus, some pine cleaning product smell/taste. Still an earthy bit to this one that I get from a lot of PP San Clemente IPAs. Not the best IPA in the world but really nice but I think PP Carlsbad still wins for IPAs.

On tap @ Pizza Port San Clemente.
Amber orange pour with some white head. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, pine, and caramel malt. Good amount of malt that stands up well to the resin, pine, and citrus hop overload.
