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.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2007 Pours cloudy light brown(tiny bit of orange). Sweet pine and citrus in aroma. Sweet thick hoppy flavor with pretty thick palate. Pretty thick palate. con... very slight metallic aftertaste. Overall pretty good though

22oz - thanks Foolish_Mortal - Aroma of strong herbal floral hops. Fresh sticky hops I expect from a San Diego IPA. Pours gold-brown with cascading bubbles a medium head and great lacing. Flavor has the hops from the aroma with a citrus tang. Nice malty back balances it out perfectly. Palate is tart and creamy, maybe a bit thin. Another bang-on winner of an IPA from Pizza Port.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Bottle, part of a stellar package sent to badnewsbeers by cquiroga. Murky sediment-laden orange-brown body, thin-medium buff head. Aroma of tropical fruits and other citrus, emphasis on mangoes and grapefruit. Sugary malts pair nicely with the complex fruity nose. The flavor was a surprisingly quick hit of grapefruit rind, followed by an indistinct, long, thin bitterness. Leaves me a bit wanting in its palate. The aroma is the highlight here, but it’s still a nice beer.

Bottle from JohnC, I believe. Pours a cloudy murky amber with the obviously identifiable aroma of grapefruity hops crawling out of the glass like some group of Trojans going over a fortified wall, oh thats right... they used a horse. Well anyway this was a real treat for an IPA,I like the word massively used here by them as it is massaively hopped and pretty darn tasty to boot.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JAN 19, 2007
22oz bomber, no date. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a 1/2 finger fading creamyish light beige head. Aroma of pineapple, citrus, tangerine, some toffee and slightly bready malts. Flavor is quite fruity hoppy--tangerine up front, followed by pineapple. More caramelly malts and a bit of the bready maltiness again. Lots of hops in the flavor, though not a ton of bitterness until the finish--moderately bitter. Burps slightly stale citrusy pine. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel, very slight prickly mouthfeel with lighter carbonation. Quite a nice IPA.

Thanks SecretSanta. Light copper color with a taller ecru head. Aromas of sweet grapefruit and light caramel. Lots of hops, quite bitter throughout the quaff. Just enough malt to keep it honest, but still a hops dominated, somewhat typical PNW IPA. As My attorney and I mulled this one over, we both said very good, not great, but certainly very good.

A big citrus aroma with a touch of pine, very, very good beer. Not very complex by any means but very good.

SpringsLicker (3220) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Thanks to beer_Hawk for sharing this one at our Nashville Tasting! Pours clear dark amber with a fleeting head. Musky earthy hop aroma comes easily accompanied by plenty or sweet malt. The flavor is bold, assertive hops with a dryness that builds into a long finish. Well done use of blend of an American hop blend, but this will have to take back seat to the memory of the old Frank.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2007 Bottle courtesy of Beer_Hawk at the Nashville Tasting. Wonderful citrusy and sweet aroma. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Very nice grassy and piney hop flavors with a sweet doughy and honey like malt backdrop. Hop bitterness lingers nicely. Another well done west coast IPA.

ive only had 2 port beers both ipas but id have to say they know how to use hops. aroma is big citrus with touches of spruce. flavor is much the same but not without some malt sweetness to back it up. this was tremendously tasty. not complex but damn good
