3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the brewpub. The beer is a clear orange-gold color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light to medium body with a moderately bitter citrusy hops character with notes of toasted malt and caramel in the background. The finish is hoppy with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ. It has a golden orange color with a nice head. The aroma was floral with some mild hops. Taste has some citrus but not too much and some herbs. Does not have the usual IPA bite but I did enjoy it. Good finish.

2012 pour from San Clemente. (Happy Birthday Casey! Thanks for the 3 hour lunch) Pours a clear golden with slight white head. Aroma is grapefruit and some pineapple. Taste is the typical San Clemente PP IPA dirt/earth taste just taken to a more resin level. Much better than a lot of their standard IPAs but still not the best. Must be the water.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Dark amber with a hint of copper. Minimal head. Restrained hop scent on a bed of malt. Big body and a noticeable alcohol note. Some would even call it a double IPA. Caramel in the middle with a stickiness and then citrus grows in the back end.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pizza Port San Clemente Edition. On tap at The Brickskeller during its "Whet" Hop Ales event with Tomme Arthur.
Pours dark copper with a white head and bits of lace. The nose is light bread some some minor scents coming from some floral and pine hops. We were told that this used Centennial and Simcoe hops. The taste is some light citrus and pine notes along with some mild Maris Otter malt underneath. Pretty bitter and a medium body. This was quite as good as the rest of the bunch.
Serving type: on-tap

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is a surprisingly cloudy copper color with a thin layer of off-white head.
S: A lackluster nose is obvious right off the bat. Very minimal hop aroma to the beer and what is there is sort of sweet with a little bit of orange peel, grass, and floral notes. Overall, though, this is mostly bread.
T: Second verse, same as the first. Bready malts with a decent enough bitterness, but no real hop flavor. Again, some citrus peel and maybe a touch of grapefruit and pine.
M: The body is medium with a fairly lively carbonation to it.
D: A true disappointment, especially for a Pizza Port IPA. I can’t recommend this one.
