4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of peach, pineapple, apricot, and grassy hops. Palate was pretty much the same as the nose detected. For 9%, Alcohol was almost non existent. Another great beer from pizza port. Tried to get a growler fill @ San clemente pizza port but they were not filling due to the limited quantity available, so settled for middle man ipa.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours with a clear, slightly deep golden hued body with a lasting white head. Aromas are grassy, grainy, mango, caramel, alcohol and lightly estery. Flavors are grainy, alcohol, mango, wet grass, a touch peppery. Too sweet for my tastes/expectations from Pizza Port. Lively carbonation.
Not one of my favorite Pizza Port DIPAs nor one of my favorite fresh hop beers that they do.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Pizza Port. I didn’t think PP San Clemente could stand up to the others in terms of hoppy beers but this one made me think differently. Pours a beyond hazy dark gold with big white head. Aroma is stone fruit, hop, pineapple, peach and fun. Taste is again peach forward with some slight bitterness but more on the great mouth feel of what a DIPA should be. Sweet and bitter with that great combination of fruit/malt/bitter. The resin really works here. Loving this beer.
