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%.

GarrettB (2205) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 10, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2019 September 19th, 2015 - Port's 15 Double Hop is a no frills, no thrills Double IPA. Clean and consistent, this is like the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale of DIPA's, and I love it. The color is a nice orange marmalade shade, with a generic IPA smell, and it's not even especially hoppy. But the flavor is where that brilliant familiarity lies. Balanced, good hops and a clean taste balanced on a comfortable body, this is a great beer to pair with food.

tfontana (2664) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 9, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2019 Taste pour from can as part of blind taste test from One Stop Market. Appearance is clear gold with gorgeous lazy sparkle with finger-width foamy off-white head with good retention and no lacing. Aroma is citrus pine and malty. Taste is strong caramel and bready malts with medicine-y alcohol not much hops except bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium side of light-to-medium bodied with smooth texture frothy carbonation and finish as taste. Overall nice mouthfeel but taste is more APA than IPA and IPA mostly for bitterness. High ratings seem to be from when bitter West-coast IPA's were king. Not feeling it in 2019.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2019 Refrigerated 19.2 aluminum can poured into a glass. Clear golden with big white head. Aroma is herbal hops, medium body, well carbonated, and little lacing. Taste is herbal hops, floral hops, and bitter finish.

Daboch (896) - Gdansk, POLAND - MAR 27, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2019 Bursztynowe lekko zamglone piwo z niezłą pianą. Aromat owocowy, leśny dość dużo żywicy, w tle słodowy. W smaku wytrawne dominują akcenty lasu iglaki i żywica, mało owoców, trochę syropowate. Finisz wytrawny. Niestety nie porwało

lasage (376) - DENMARK - FEB 16, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2019 Let hazy orange/rød/ravgylden, flot hvid skum som svinder. Umiddelbart lækker delikat lidt sødlig humle, efter lidt tid bliver den lidt mere tung, sprittet og lidt maltet. Smagen er meget fyldig, medium/høj bitter som rundes af af noget malt sødme, forholdsvis meget sprit, efter lidt tid i glasset er der næste lidt Barley Wine over den, lidt sødlig bitter eftersmag. Fin IPA, men måske lidt for sprittet.

vincentvega72 (1680) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2018 Blond, licht troebel, bier met romige witte schuimkraag die redelijk snel inzakt. Volop hop, citrus, hars, steenvrucht. Behoorlijke volle body, medium bittere afdronk. Abv zit goed weggestopt. Drinkt te makkelijk weg. Top ipa.
