On tap @ Pizza Port Carlsbad. Golden pour with a white head. Aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, and orange rind. Light caramel sweetness, bread, and peach. Nice sweetness of citrus and fruits to the flavor. Some caramel/malt sweetness as well. Mild bitterness of orange and grapefruit rinds. Some pineapple, peach, and a touch of pine. Not bad at all.

Tap at PP/OB. Poured a clear-ish yellow with a rocky, eggshell head leaving very good spotty lace. Fresh, dank hop nose but still not a mind blowing cascade of character. Just solid, fresh, Yakima hops. Taste is unbalanced- full 100+ IBU bitter with no body to balance leaving a spritzy, thin body completely unprepared for such high alpha acid hops. Final result is powerfully astringent, biting. nimbleprop (8761) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 1, 2010
On tap at Brickskeller DC. Pours a bright yellow, gold with a frothy white head. Big floral, perfumey nose, pine, orange, honey, lemons. Flavor is really juicy, oranges, peaches, resinous hops, earthy, pine with some sweetness too. Medium bodied lightly bitter, otherwise smooth finish. Super juicy. Well balanced while being super fresh. Really drinkable. I wish this was my local pub. BMan1113VR (7929) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 26, 2010
On tap at Pizza Port San Clemente’s Hoptoberfest. I loved this beer (as did a lot of people I spoke to, but a few didn’t and I can see why). Pours with a clear golden body with a white head. Strongly catty (cat urine) aroma, with big notes of mango, papaya, really floral hops and light crystal. Flavor has absolutely no catty notes. Hugely floral with tropical fruit. Insanely fruit, very floral. Lively bubbles. Very delicious! Sledutah (7841) - Utah, USA - OCT 14, 2010
On tap at Ocean Beach

Appearance: Clear golden with a medium sized white head and some lacing left in the glass
Aroma: Sweet ripe fruits and malts
Taste: Floral and piney
Very nice IPA.
(En fût à la brasserie): Forte résine verte et un sucre aussi fort, harmonieux dans l’agressivité. JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Draft at PP Carlsbad. Clear golden amber pour, white head. Dank hops, pine, bitterness, sweet malts, caramel, and light tropical fruit. The beer feels fairly heavy. I wish it was dryer, still decent. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Clear dark yellow with a creamy white head. Big skunky pine aroma. Tastes of pine grass hay and citrus. Not bad but not great. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Pizza Port Ocean Beach Edition. On tap at The Brickskeller during its "Whet" Hop Ales event with Tomme Arthur.
Poured a pale yellow color with a bit of an orange tint. Transparent without too much visible carbonation. The nose bring some light citrus and was quite dank. The taste really brought a lot of pine and resin, plus what I’ll refer to as some "green heat" from the fresh hops. Feel was really bitter, excessively so. It gave Amyliz4 heartburn it was so bitter. Fantastic finish and superior drinkability.
Serving type: on-tap
