"It’s hard to believe we’ve been slingin’ pizzas for 20 years since March of 1987! That’s about 7300 days or 175,200 happy hours of fun! We’re excited to celebreate by brewing and bottling up a beer to share a special toast! Swami’s IPA is one of our best selling beers. Many have called it the original San Diego IPA. As such, it’s been a big part of Pizza Port Solana Beach since we installed the brewing system in 1992. A bold IPA hopped to the extreme with galena, Centennial and Cascade hops. We also add a healthy dose of dry hops in the serving tank and always serve it unfiltered. Thank you so much to everyone who has been sharing the memories along the unbelievable way...Cheers!"

Formerly 7.4% when brewed at Solana Beach location.

Vignale (2243) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2015
Burk från Craftbeer/Galatea. Fin fruktig IPA med friska snygga smaker av ananas, persika och aprikos, tallskott, gräs, aromatisk trä typ ceder och grapezest. Lite matig och tuggig munkänsla med fin grape och resinbeska. Det finns något i smakbilden som sticker ut lite och känns riktigt trevlig, kanske är det Galenahumlen. Mums.

Bottle at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Hoppy smell with citrus and tropical fruits. Similar taste. Nice long bitterness, but not overpowering. Feels a bit aged but the base beer is very nice. Light body. Not boozy.-

Pour from a tallboy can (which comes in 6-packs, which is most excellent!). Clear pale yellow in color with a white head and some very minimal white lacing. Nice tropical fruit hoppy nose. Dry, hoppy and bitter in the finish.

Burk från Bishop Örebro. Lätt orange didig färg med vit skumkrona. Doft av söta mandariner. Smak av exotiska frukter och lite tall. Välbalanserad kropp med lagom tilltag av sötma och efterbeska.

(Ocean Beach): De la chair d’agrumes juteux et d’une panoplie de fruits tropicaux. Fondation maltée propre, ingrédients tranchants et amertume forte mais courte. Difficile de seulement la déguster.
