3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. A clear, dark golden beer with a small white head. Curtains. Pleasant pine cone aroma with a hint of malts and orange. Very bitter on the palate, full bodied and quite dry. Pine cones, some pale malts and orange peel in the flavor. Lasting finish. Sure a nice ipa, maybe a bit bitter to drink a lot of though. 130813

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Pizza Port SC. Clear, bright gold pour with smaller but rocky foam. Big lacing. Nose is bright starfruit, mild butterscotch, sharp orange peel. Taste is actually fairly malty, not sticky at all, but there is some Irish oatmeal and pale grist character before a smack of fruity hops and long grapefruit finish. Palate isn’t as silky, butterscotch as I like but more soapy, rindy white grapefruit. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Pizza Port Carlsbad... Poured hazy golden orange with a white-ish head. This was husky with a decent malt presence. Hops were resinous, earthy, and spicy. Reminded me more of a NW IPA rather than a West Coast IPA. Hints of citrus and pine too, but not totally in your face with hop power and presence.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Pizza Port San Clemente. Pours a hazy amber with 1/2" white head. Aroma is grassy, hop forward. Some pine and resin in there. Taste is a more subdued IPA for PP but really nice and refreshing. Citrus, some pine cleaning product smell/taste. Still an earthy bit to this one that I get from a lot of PP San Clemente IPAs. Not the best IPA in the world but really nice but I think PP Carlsbad still wins for IPAs.
