Pizza port pseudo. Growler thanks to alex... Pours a hazy orange apple cider pour with a vibrant white head that quickly recedes towards the edges... Somewhat dank, more grassy with pale bready malt...
Sharp citrus and pine grassiness. Pale semi-sweet supports the generally hopped up flavor profile. Refreshing with a lasting bitterness on the palate. Crisp carbonation with a medium body overall.

Thanks to Alex for bringing this growler to Sean’s 30th Birthday Extravaganza. Served in a snifter.
Pours a nice light copper color with a good white head and a bit of spotty lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward a pretty good contingent of hops, mostly floral and citrus. Light malt in the background. The flavor hits hard with some citrus hops and perhaps a bit of a tropical character. Floral hops are there too. Light to medium body with a dry, bitter finish. A nice brew, but didn’t hold up well when compared with the Poor Man’s. Still, a very enjoyable brew.

Big floral and citrus notes in the aroma that follow through to the flavor. Pours a pretty orange color. Can see why this won awards. Would make an excellent table IPA

Growler shared at Sean’s 30th Birthday. Pours a nice faintly hazed crisp golden orange hue, glowing bueaty with a decent brighter white soapy head that dies to an ok film, ok lacing. Aromas are a rich sweeter hopping, florals and grapefruit, grass, lemons, oranges. Some bread dough, touches of sweeter malts. Fresh hops. Initial is medium bodied, some decent hops throw lemons, grass, and florals. Touches of bread dough, some toastiness. Hops die flat, certainly with some oranges, lemons, grass. Into the middle some soap, Amarillo, and dry florals. Finish cleans up, decent hops. Not bad, but not a world mover. chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Thanks to Alex... Dark gold with a nice off white head... Soap, dank, a little citrus, nice but not as good as Poorman’s but good... Much easier to drink than the Poorman’s, bitter hops with dank note, very crushable

tap at brewpub-pours orange with a very small white head. nose is pretty typical from PP, but good-tropical fruit paradise huge pineapple and grapefruit, lite cheese, and honey. lite pine flavors and tropical as hell but has a good amount of pine on the finish to dry it out. very well balanced here-decent sweet malt to balance out the firm bitterness. love the long piney finish on this one. cool brew! bb (9695) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Draft. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Big summer fruit aroma. Pine and summer fruit flavor with grapefruit. Medium bodied. Nice bitterness. Pine and summer fruit lingers with grapefruit and light malt. dwyerpg (6290) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Wow, smells wonderful. Tons of citrus hops. This is a very aggressive fresh hop flavor. Top notch SoCal stuff. Don’t see how it’s pseudo. nickd717 (4780) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Growler thanks to Arbitrator. Pours a clear golden color with a large three-finger foamy white head that lasts. Excellent lacing. Nice IPA aroma of fresh floral, herbal, and citrusy hops along with a little sweet malt base. The flavor is on the lighter side but well-balanced. Rather bitter with a slight pale malt base and huge herbal, tropical, and floral hops. Big bitter and dry mouthfeel with medium-light body for the style. Seems like a real, non-pseudo IPA, but for San Diego, I guess I understand. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 25, 2010
On tap at Pizza Port San Clemente’s Hoptoberfest. Pours with a lasting white head and a murky orange body. Aroma is big, dank, tropical fruit, herbal notes and light candi sugar. Flavors are super dry, dank and bitter. Herbal and spicy. Very, very dry finish.
