COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With 78 IBUs. Our version of a West Coast IPA- brewed in the San Diego style. This massively hoppy beer gets its flavor and attitude from no less than five hop varieties including Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Summit.

22. Thanks, Aspidites! Pours medium gold with ambery highlights. Giant flowery hop nose. Sweet floral candy all over the place. Big tingly forward attack; medium body, hot resiny bitterness as you get nearer the finish. Quite the grand tour of hop varieties--this is amazing stuff and I really wish I could get it all the time.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2007 Tried on tap a PP Carlsbad. Deep yellow color, Wonderful powerful hoppy aroma. Small head (typical PP carbonation). Nice hoppy taste as well. Underlying sweetness. I wonder what itís like after a year of aging? I should go buy a bottle. 9/3/8/3/16 Rerate: 8/3/7/3/16 on 7/14/07 Rerate: 8/4/8/4/17.5:4.15 on 10/2007

650 mL bottle. Cloudy orange amber with foamy white head and good lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus. Thick well carbonated palate. Sweet grapefruit and caramel taste up front with a good piney bitterness to the finish.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Poured a darker golden color with a huge 3 finger white head and a lot of pretty big floaties. The aroma is super sweet. Notes of Cirtus, pineapple, and honeysuckle are all present. The flavors are a bit more earthy with a lot of resinous pine. Still some pineapple but itís a lot more subdude than the aroma. I had high hopes for this one after the first sniff but the flavor just didnít quite live up.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange color, medium frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, floral hops, some sweet caramel malt. Taste has more floral, pine, resin and some malt. Very good bitterness. Medium body. Good, what I would expect from Port.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2007
22oz. Pours hazy orange with a small foamy white head. Aroma is pleasant, citrusy hops. Some pine too but mostly citrus. Oranges. Taste is pretty bitter, earthy and piney. Pretty rough but not in a bad way. It would be nice if the citrus in the aroma came through in the flavor more. Taste could be a bit sweeter. Still good though.

Indra (2626) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 2, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2007 22oz. bottle. Aroma presents a full spectrum of fresh, leafy hop character, strongly fruity and delicately floral, with notes of pine resin, spice, dried herbs, tangerine, grapefruit, bubblegum and faint leather, along with some honeysuckle sweetness in the background, Medium golden color with an amber cast, very lightly hazy and with a mountainous, billowy and lasting head. Flavor profile features a similar panoply of resinous, juicy hop flavors, with plenty of pine, lightly peppery spice and citrus and a largely undetectable malt character, this manifesting very late with suggestions of pale grains. This is one of those IPAs with a dizzying rush and array of hop flavors, yet without the crushing bitterness that generally accompanies such a direction, rather, contributing a soft and balanced amount, and seeing a touch of dryness towards the clean finish. Mouthfeel is effervescent and creamy with a medium-full body. Certainly an agreeable interpretation. Cheers, Brian!

This was probably the hoppiest beer Iíve ever tried. Smells like a juniper tree. Very bitter, tastes kinda like a pine tree, yet it has a sort of sweet flavor too. The after taste lingers on forever, which was kind of annoying. Not a fan of hoppy beers, but if you like them, youíd love this.
