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%.

Pours a deep hazy orange with lots of sediment. Aroma is perfect of citrus and hops. Great taste very bitter and great taste. This beer is a great double that is easy to drink but very bold.

my second favourite imp ipa. Did head to head with df90 and ruination. This had the best nose (the citrusy hop sweetness) Great flavour profile. citrus, slightly spicey, and a smooth hoppiness with a nice finish (not overly dry)

Bomber from my boy Ryan S. at Texas liq. in Carlsbad. What can I say about this one, WOW. Sunset orange complextion with a butt load of piney hops. Taste is HEAVY hops as you would expect, lots of citrus notes and lots of hops. Here it is for you hoppies, enjoy~

TPaliga (212) - Munster, Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2006
Poured reddish brown with very thin offwhite head. Aroma is piney/resiny citrus hops. The aroma is outstanding. The flavor is citrusy and bitter. Some malt charater adds a little balance, but this brew is HOPPY. Nice bitter finish with a touch of sweetness to the end. Excellent.

Sample @ Stockholm Beer & Whiskey Festival Great IIPA here, lots of blood orange and orange being in play here. Quite thick in the taste (not the mouthfeel), almost as if it’s a concetration of the zest too. well, nice malt base that is probably the reason why the orange sticks out a bit more.

vacantskies (208) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Lots of flavors which was expected. Bright orange color. Very hoppy. Interesting beer. Had it on tap at Jones Radiator.

Looks and smells like a decent double IPA. It fails for me in the bitter/flavor hop balance. Needs more flavor hops while the bitter works straight through each sip. Malts are well balanced underneath, but bland in overall complexity.

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Amber with nice head. Beautiful floral, citrus, and somewat grassy hop aroma. Very smooth but very powerful floral, resiny, and citrus hop taste. Very subdued bitterness. Showcases the hops extremely well.

socaltay (204) - Ventura, California, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Aroma is light but filled with the smell of citrus and pine.Appearance is a golden/ orange color that pours with a white thin head that only lasts for a short time. The carbonation is great and the taste is very well balanced. The alcohol is hidden completely and the most prominent flavors are that of hops and a light malt backbone. Wonderful beer, I have been liking Port Brewings beer quite a bit as of late and I hope they continue with the large amount of port/ lost abbey beers
