Keg at PP SB, 14/11/14. Clear golden with a decent off white covering. Nose is straw, citric rind, light bread dough, vanilla, rather thin and found wanting. Taste comprises bitter orange, grassy, lemon rind, pale malt, light bread notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so, homebrew APA!

>> Low Tide, now billed as an APA at 6.5% and made this year with wet Equinox hops. Pours a clear copper with okay foam. Nose is sticky, dank papaya. peach, grapefruit, a bit stinky and overripe. Taste is super bitter, grapefruit, soapy, dark bread and crust. Long, aggressive, hoppy finish. Mega IBU presence. Tried back to back with Inhopsicated, and the Inhopsicated felt juicier and easy to drink despite being a DIPA.

skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Draft at the 2006 Washington Cask Beer Festival. Didnt stand out like the Wetlands did, but held in there with enough malt character to bite your tongue for more.

mcberko (16598) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
On tap at Pizza Port Ocean Beach, pours a hazy golden / copper with a small white head. Aroma and flavour of biscuity, crackery malt, light floral hops, and dry crackery malts. Pretty ordinary, but ultimately fairly boring. Solidly made.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 8, 2013
On tap @ Pizza Port Bressi Ranch. Golden orange pour with a white head. Aroma has a nice orange peel character to it. Light pineapple, some floral hops, earth, and pine. A touch of grass and sweet malt. Flavor opens with a toast and bread malt sweetness to it. Lots of pine, orange peel, and flowers. A mild pineapple note on the back end. A touch bitter, too.

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
On tap @ the brewpub. Deeper gold colour than the Wet Hop, tighter head, early whips of lace. Aroma and hop profile lean more toward pine/conifer with a balanced malty sweetness. Not as explosively flavourful as the wet hop, but certainly still great.

Pizza Port Solana Edition. On tap at The Brickskeller during its "Whet" Hop Ales event with Tomme Arthur. Pours orange-copper with a white head and loads of lacing. The aroma is very light with some pale malt and very slight pine hop characteristics. The taste brings some fresh hops and a bit of greenness. Tomme informed us that this use 180 pounds of fresh hops in a 7-barrel batch. Feel brings some light bitterness and lower levels of carbonation. Overall, this was quite sessionable.

Hazy yellow with a persistent, yet thin head. Huge hops in the nose. Heavy handed hops in the mouth.

nimbleprop (8076) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 1, 2010
On tap at Brickskeller DC. Pours a clear orange with a thin, frothy white head. Nice, fresh aroma, not too punchy, lightly spicy, citrus, a little candy. Flavor is mild, sweet, orange, lemons, pine, caramel, some biscuit. Medium bodied, dry finish. Very well balanced. Fresh but also mild.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2011 On tap at Pizza Port San Clementes Hoptoberfest. Pours with a clear golden body and a lasting white head. Aroma is grainy, cereal and bready with herbal, and spicy hops. A bit of dry hop grassiness. Flavors of grain, cereal, citrus, herbal hops and popcorn. Very lively bubbles. Dry. Very sessionable, but leans towards the grainy/malty side of things (sort of like San Clementes Rip Tide).

Re-rate: On tap at the brewpub. Pours with a brilliantly clear golden hued body with a retentive and lace producing white head. Strong fruity aromas, floral, delicate tropical fruit notes, flowery, grassy, light esters and some sweetness. A bit dank the more you sip. Flavors are grainy, bready, dry and a bit of DMS possibly (didnt smell it on any other PPSB beers). Very fruity, a bit spicy, grassy, floral. Dry. Very grainy, tropical fruit. Light bubbles, dry, lighter bodied.
