3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 22 oz. bomber with a list of hops along the left side of label, no freshness date.
Poured a cloudy orangey amber with a small foamy off-white head that settled into a thin bubbly lacing.
Aromas of grapefruit and pine, citric rind, floral, oily and a subtle sweet caramel.
Steady, even moderate carbonation and a crisp, hop slick, creamy smooth light-medium bodied mouthfeel.
Hop tasting, grapefruit, lemon tea, a touch of citric rind, earthy, a sweet maltiness rides underneath the hops, caramel, toffee with a touch of English butteriness, the alcohol mingles with the hops and has a soft warming presence in the palate, and a dryish earthy, grainy finish.
A nice, pleasant IPA, easy drinkability, and quite affordable at $3.99.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Bottle purchased @ PP Carlsbad. Re-rated this one b/c this bottle was much better than the last. Huge hop nose. Nice caramel malt background to balance out the clean crisp hop profile. a VERY good IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours tawny in color w/ a full semi creamy froth reducing to pancake spatter. Aromas of fresh dusty lime rind w/ slight biscuiting. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors of fresh bright lime rind backed up by a perfect malty backbone with perfect carameling. Finish is bittered w/ asprin. Its a refined specimen that is delicate yet robust. Not unlike a professional female body builder who still wants to be treated like a lady. Let this one warm up a bit, you’ll get more out of it. Highly recommended.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. Bottle purchased @ Papago. On the nose is a tin shed metalic aroma. As you get further into the beer pine aroma is present. Golden/orange body with off white head and good amoutn of lacing. Had more of a malt flavor than what most IPA have. Medium citrus flavor balanced out the malt and mild bitterness. Smooth on the palate but not cool and crisp like most IPA’s.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Orange with a very thin head. Aroma is very floral and citrusy, quite balanced. Flavor is a bit piney, ending in a nice grapefruit bitterness. Taste lingers for a bit. Mouthfeel is quite good given this style, nice and creamy, but is a little under carbonated. I enjoyed this beer much more than I was expecting. For the price, you can’t go wrong.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Solana Beach - Orange, thin white creamy head. Nice nose of nutty earth, pine and hints of grapefruit rind. Well bittered flavors throughout with just a faint tone of toasted chocolate and alcohol heat. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, bitter finish. If this was ever available in bottles, could easily be a staple in the fridge. As with most of the PP brews, I dig it...

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
As IPA’s go, this is one of the best. Orange-gold pour, nice fluffy head, aroma full of hops. Big citrus and resin in the taste with a slight malt back. Nice and bitter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Yay! more bottled Pizza Port. Pure hops just gush out of the bottle and into the aroma of the air. Sits in the glass as a dense brass copper color. Little amount of foaming. Flavor is bitter with hops and citrus notes grapefruit as well as the peel of a grapefruit or lemon. Aftertaste is astringent and metallic but all the well a good IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
GABF 2006. Hazy blonde color, white head that lasts. Aroma is dominated by piney hops, some grassiness. Thin body. Flavor is dominated by piney hops and bitterness - malt lacking, one dimensional. Overall, a very hoppy, one dimensional brew with a pine focus....very similar to a lot of Pizza Ports IPAs. Disappointing.
