COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2011 GA now has Port and Lost Abbey on the shelves! Bomber about 1 month old, drank on 1/21/11. pours a deep orange with a 1/4" white head... which fades away. huge citrus hop aromas with lively orange notes, some apricot and a touch of pineapple. big chewy body filled with citrus hop goodness. lots of orange notes along with other citrus fruits. a solid bitterness fills the mouth with some deep sweet malts towards the back of the mouth. a spicy bitter finish coats the throat and the tip of the mouth. this is liquid gold!

bomber courtesy of fordest! This is a total HOP bomb. Truly excellent IIPA. Aromas of apricot, spices and citrus. I wish I could buy this beer locally, b/c I would regularly. Pours a wonderful deep golden amber with minimal head. Great flavor from top to bottom.

Pours a golden amber color, small head. Aroma was fruity & hoppy, I love it. Flavor was nice and smooth, very hoppy, citrusy & fruity, with light carbonation. Goes down smooth with lots of flavor. A really great beer!

Courtesy WeeHeavySD. Growler. Amber with a small layer of white film. Full of juicy west coast hop goodness- tangerine, pine resin, past ripe melon, herbal perfume with just enough malt support. Full body, resinous balanced by carbonation. Very nice IIPA.

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Pours clear golden copper with a small tan head. The aroma is very balanced.... well, maybe not - it is a hop BOMB. There is citrus, pine, pineapple, tropical fruits, soapiness and even resin on the nose. Medium / full body that is very smooth and resiny with lush soft carbonation. The flavor starts with big toasted caramel malt that is pleasant, but very overshadowed by the hearty dominant hops. They start with tropical fruits, wood, pine and citrus. The finish has pine cones, pine needles, and earthiness. Your mouth feels like it has been paintbrushed with a layer of hop resin. Thumbs up for this truly exceptional IIPA that is made for the over-the-top hophead.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 pours a muddled copper. aromas of malt and sweetened grapefruit juice. medium bodied thats enriched with some warmth . flavor is malt, honey and more grapefruit juice along with the skin. hops come through as floral and fruity, not piney. it’s not nearly as hoppy or bitter as i expected. almost disappointingly well balanced.minnesotans will be happy to know that furious is still better and it’s only got one I. 8/3/8/3/17

on cask @ papago 9/3/9/5/17 =4.4 nice mellowed woody hop aroma is everywhere. the flavor is amped with hops and is super dry. ridiculously creamy mouth feel and cask texture . i wasn’t a fan from the bottle but this is incredible. the hops have awoken!!!!

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2007
22oz. Bottle. Medium bitter, very hoppy aroma. Smells of hop, resin, lychee, and pine. Poured amber in color with a small khaki head that lasted throughout. Good lacing. Cloudy. Full of medium-sized particles. Flavor is heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, resin, pine, crystal malts, and a touch of grapefruit. Delicious. Medium to full body. Creamy, slightly oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. Overall, I wish the finish were dry, but this is a great Impy IPA. 10.5%ABV is very well hidden.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2007
Red pour, almost no head. Aroma is light grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit and loads of caramel and munich malts, a lot. Huge bash of more sweet caramel malts and tons of grapefruit hoppiness, a little unbalanced but not bad.
