3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22-oz. bomber from FlacoAlto. Pours clear gold with virtually no head, but what is there is patchy white, mostly diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (meal, cereal), heavy hops (flowers, grass, soap), average yeast (sweat) with notes of sugar and pears. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and harsh bitterness; soapy hop flavor with trace malt and yeast. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, slick texture and metallic finish.

Pour is golden yellow with a thin white head...smell is all pine and resin...taste was chewy and oily with pine, soap, resin...a slight nice residual sweetness that compensated for the herbal nature of the beer...

bottle: Full aroma of classic signature west coast hop overpowering the nose. All citrus of grapefruit and orange with fresh mosit and danky hops defining the smell in more indepth detail. The same story is described as the flavor which dominates with fresh hop and everything i love in an ipa. Appearance is a golden ale with sediment floating about. Soapy and sticky head.

Bottle courtesy of my man Naven. Pretty pour w/ great lacing. How many PP IPAís have I tried? Not sure, but this one doesnít disappoint. Nice hop aroma and grassy/piney hop flavor dominating w/ a tinge of citrus hop flavor. Another great PP beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excited to try my 1st Pizza Port brew! 22 oz bomber - Amber pour with foamy white head. Very nice fresh hop aroma up front with pine and heavy citrus. Taste is very sweet, floral fresh hop goodness. Upfront, this one has the best taste and feel of the few fresh hop brews Iíve tried. Malt backing is solid and well done for the style. The only thing it needs is a bit more stickiness at the end, but Iím not complaining.

Murky straw color with lots of particulate. White scant head. Nose is all grapefruit as is the flavor. Noticed that it got better as it warmed. Palate was a bit thinner than I expected.
