First brewed in 2002 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the original Pizza Port location in Solana Beach, we searched high and low and combined 15 of our favorite hops which were added every 15 minutes to the boil. Somewhat darker than other Double IPA style beers, our beer oozes the hop goodness of pine needles, freshly squeezed citrus and ground spices which are only moderately tempered by a sweet malt finish. Thankfully, for all of us hopheads, we have decided to brew this beer more than once a year. Look for Hop 15 to make appearances from time to time when space permits us to brew this, one of our favorite ales.
Alcohol content varies. Spring 2012 batch is 11% ABV. Spring 2013 is 10%.

A fine beer, definitely not for the faint of heart. this beer grabs you from the first sip and doesnt let go. the flavor profile is strong and robust with obvious pine and resin at the beginning but finishes nicely with a combination of grapefruit, caramel, tobacco and leather notes on the finish. if you dont dig this beer its ok... more for me.....

Thanks to riversideAK for this gem. Big hoppy and pine nose with a nice clear amber color and brown head. Flavor is right to the point with hops all over the place, yet it is well balanced with anice malt backbone. Creamy nice sweet texture that has a great hoppy finish.

22oz prelude to some cali funk to put me into another day yes. very sweet and hoppy very ipish a tad alcoholic, a bit very hoppy and dry, yet refreshing piney yes but still like a drying experience with every taste which is bothersome a bit. not enough malt o deal with all the hops in this bottle is what I am coming to the conclusion of.

Bottled (Thanks Stoutlover72!). Deep amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is bready and grassy/flowery hops. Flavour is the same along with a balancing touch of fruityness. Also some slight yeastyness and alcohol can be cfound. Big grassy and alcoholic aftertaste.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2007
#37 [Blind tasting @ Papsoe, Courtesy of Papsoe/ kmweaver] Small fizzy off-white head that mostly diminished. Fair lacework. Cloudy amber colour. Heavy grapefruit, pine, citrus. Perfume and soapy feel as well.. Light fruity / apricot notes. Medium to full bodied with a very dry texture and an average carbonation. Moderated to heavy bitter flavour with light sweet notes. Very dry and lingering bitter finish. 3 / 7 / 8 / 4 / 15 = 3.7

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2007
Dark nut-orange color, small off-white head. Bready, citrusy hoppy aroma. Very malty, bready hoppy flavor. Notes of citrus, but mostly yeasty and alcoholic. Warming, but not kind of IPA I like, Score 4.06 seems quite overrated if judged by this bottle.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Pours a golden orange with an off white head. Head retention is very nice. Aroma is dominated by pine hops. Hops dominate this beer. There was so much complexity to this beer’s hop profile. Citrus and pine to name a few. End with some lingering hops along with some slight sweet malts. Amazing IPA.
