Draft and growler from PP San Clemente. Another in a long line of great, hoppy brews from PP. Nice and chewy with hops. Not as good as Hop Suey, but very good.

Ahhh...this was once a favorite at Pizza Port. I ordered up a pint, certain of a magnificent glass of thoroughly hopped, malty goodness to enjoy, but something went wrong. I was talking with a local who was so impressed with the new recipe for this beer, having been unhappy with the old recipe. Anyways, I ordered my pint and found it hard to drink. I really didn’t want to drink it, to be quite honest. Some of the Port beers tend to have this astringent rubbing-alcohol flavor, like Lou P. Linn (which is an awesome IPA except for this astringence in the aftertaste), and the "new" Doheny Double has been thorough infected, from the aroma to the aftertaste. It looked great, dark honeyed body with a lovely head, nice lace, and visible carbonation. It has a lovely body and nice, mouth-filling carbonation. But I smelled pine, rubbing alcohol, resin, and some sadly nice malts. I tasted much the same. The beer was incredibly harsh.

Murky light orange hue with thick foam and lacing on the glass. Aroma is moderate pine and earthy hops balanced out by caramel malts. Flavor is pine resin and grassy hops, thick caramel malt, touch of citrus and cotton candy sugar. Palate is thick and chewy texture with ample carbonation. Overall, a strong and well-balanced IIPA, nice malt presence, abv is masked by the flavors.

From tap at San Clemente. Pours slight cloudy and golen orange with a lacing white head. Aroma is nicely fruity hoppy. Fruity and nicely bitter flavour. Holds a nice caramel malt to give good balance all the way through.

Had a pint at PP Carlsbad during lunch. Wow. Incredible nose pounding hop aroma. It is really wonderful to smell this during the hop shortage. Possibly because of the craft brewers conference here, possibly because it is always wonderful. In either case, Im happy. Grassy, green, a bit of grapefruit hops, but not overly bitter. Easy to drink. Light amber color. Leans a hair sweet. Wonderful!

Copper pour with small off-white head. Big hoppy grapefruit nose. Flavor was all hops at first with a touch of sweet malt, almost like a drop of honey towards the finish. Really didnt notice the high alcohol, didnt get that normal burn in the throat.
