On tap at Pizza Port it has a golden amber color with a small head. Aroma of pine and spruce. Taste is pretty dry with some big hops. It has grass and grapefruit up front. Long bitter finish.

Ontape (151) - Valley Village, California, USA - APR 6, 2014
On tap at PPSC. Classic AIPA. Simcoe, Amarillo, Cascade or something along those lines. Very clean and balanced. Hops present but not in your face. An IPA anyone could drink but one hopheads should still enjoy. Remember, you can session at 7% if you pace yourself. This isnít a revelation but itís frickiní good. Their cans let me down but the three beers Iíve had on site have all been very good.

@Port SC. Clear golden color with white head. Spicy, citrusy, woody hop aromas. Light mouthfeel. Same spicy, pine hoppy flavors with light, drying pale malt base__drying finish__tasty IPA.

Growler fill from Pizza Port San Clemente: Liquid appeared golden bronze with slight tint of sediment while creating a thick fluffy pillow cap of foam. Aroma is dominated by green oily hop pellets that brings on scents of grapefruit and orange peel but is then is followed up by a subtle whiff of bready malts. One of the more hearty IPAís my nose has come across in the last few months. The drink is bitter which also activates my salty taste buds; however, the flavor of this beer doesnít live up to the floral aroma I picked up on earlier and has a salty taste of sweat with a funky taste of grapefruit peels. Almost a stinky cheese taste but that same familiar funky gym socks taste that occasionally occurs in hoppy beers.

peteinSD (1281) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2013
Tap @ PP San Clemente. Somewhat hazy golden pour. Aroma is pine, bitterness, slight citrus, and a grainy malt character. Taste sharp pine and heavy bitterness with a clean, lightly bready malt backbone. Nice bitter IPA.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Straw gold color, great lacing. Aroma of pith, juicy, tangerine. Flavor is more citrus, perfume flowers, with strong bitter kick. Excellent as usual, a bit more pithy/metallic than I would ideally like. 3.8.

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
On tap @ craft beer C.O, London. A clear yellow-golden one with a small sidesticking head. This was actually the last one they had on the tap, so I only got 1/3 of the glass. It smells of green grapes, pine and hops. Not much more, but I like it. Itís average carbonated and it has a mild oily texture. Sweet peaches in the taste, bitter at first but non-extreme, some fruity citrus and red not right currants. Ends quite dry. Enjoyable. 21.07.2012
