3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ Pizza Port (San Clemente). Hazy golden orange with a small off white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, pine, citrus and honey. Flavor is mostly bitter hops with a smooth toasty malt character. Medium body with mild carbonation (cask) and a long, dry, bitter finish. Nice IIPA, focus is on the hops with light malt taste and the alcohol is very well hidden.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitcher at Pizza Port in San Clemente. Pours a light orange with a slight, white head. Aroma is of tropical fruit and some nice peach elements. Taste is very much of fresh tilled soil, first in a DIPA, with some very slight tropical fruit, spring flower elements and peach. Mouthfeel is slight to watery. Overall, a bit boring for Pizza Port. Thank goodness the pizza is amazing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a finger of white head. A very intense hop aroma to this. Lots of herbal and line hop notes. Just a bit of citrus peel in there, too. Some sweet bread and malt on the back end. A bit sweet and quite a bit of bread and toasted malt. A bit of herbal and pine hop flavor with a little bitterness on the finish. Not quite as good as many of the other Pizza Port IPAs. Medium body and medium carbonation.
