On tap at S&B. Clear amber pour with a white head. Tropical fruit, grapefruit, and pine aromas. These three hop profiles were supported by a sturdy caramel malt backbone. Good balance, good mouthfeel. Well done..

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.
