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.

Hazy dark amber with a large head, good lacing and retention. Aroma is very fruity with grapefruit and mangoes, but also notes of pine, resin and caramel. Flavor brings this, it’s all about the hops. Another PNW monster, but this one is well put together.

Courtesy bu11zeye. Hazy orange and a small layer of off white carbonation. Huge hops in this one- citrus rind and flesh, melon, lightly spicy florals, resin, and some sweetness. Same huge hops in the flavor with just a bit of malt support. Medium body, balanced, a little syrupy. Solid west coast IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2007 Thanks to notalush and apoptosis for sharing this. Bright orange-red beer with a thin white head. Incredibly fresh hoppy aroma. Citrus, grapefruit, grape, sweet mango and pineapple. Just a massive amount of juicy fruity hops. The body is quite lean and there is quite a bit of peppery ethanol that seems to dominate the flavour. Peppery with a lot of hoppy pine aroma. The promise made by the aroma isn’t quite delivered by the flavour, but it’s still a tasty IPA.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pours a dark yellow color, small white head from the tap. Extreme floral nose with piney citrus notes. Mouthfeel is clean and fresh. Very hoppy but not overly bitter. Long, lingering finish. A great IPA, but a bit one dimensional.

Floral hop bomb in both the aroma and flavor. A light brown color with some sourness.

Drafted at O’Briens. This beer may have all of the qaulities I enjoy in a brew. Pine with grapfruit tones throughout. They get better as the beer warms, and its delicious to the last drop. I wanted more, but it was time to go.

Bomber. Aroma of fresh grapefruit and pungent, bitter PNW hops. Rubbing alcohol and tangerine. Taste is a lot more mellow, more tangerine and kumquats, quite sessionable. Bitterness and astringency is a bit over the top.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - FEB 25, 2007
The pour from the bottle revealed a frothy white head of foam not too unlike the whitewater of the surf found here in Encinitas and as depicted on the great label.The apparance was a nice golden haze as of a san diego sunrise with a natural earthy nose full of torrey pine like notes.In the mouth the hops came through lively, balanced, and bitter. The taste felt natural and organic as of drinking of the earth and grass. The drinking experience got more favorable as the large bottle was being emptied. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable IPA well above others. Oh another pleasure of living in San Diego is to have Port breweries to the North and South and so close!!!

notalush (4852) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Cloudy orange pour, with a fizzy white head - huge, earthy amarillo and simcoe aroma - starts dry and extremely bitter, but this quickly makes way for an almost "british" bready malt sweetness - citrus fruits abound (naturally) - there is an almost musty, earthy quality throughout that makes things interesting - a solid, and somewhat original IPA.

22oz bottle, courtesy of Naven. Thanks, Dave! Pours a hazy, yellowish-orange color; off-white head with large bubbles and decent lacing. Dank, hoppy aroma: plenty of citrus and grapefruit. Full, chewy mouthfeel: dank grapefruit and orange; prominent candy sugar maltiness, which slightly overwhelms the hops; finishes on the sweet side, with plenty of grapefruit.
