COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"It’s hard to believe we’ve been slingin’ pizzas for 20 years since March of 1987! That’s about 7300 days or 175,200 happy hours of fun! We’re excited to celebreate by brewing and bottling up a beer to share a special toast! Swami’s IPA is one of our best selling beers. Many have called it the original San Diego IPA. As such, it’s been a big part of Pizza Port Solana Beach since we installed the brewing system in 1992. A bold IPA hopped to the extreme with galena, Centennial and Cascade hops. We also add a healthy dose of dry hops in the serving tank and always serve it unfiltered. Thank you so much to everyone who has been sharing the memories along the unbelievable way...Cheers!"

Formerly 7.4% when brewed at Solana Beach location.

A light orange beer, a head is big and blond. Aroma has smooth mangos and papaiyas, some grapefruits and caramel. Taste has caramel malts, pine, less tropical fruitness than in the aroma, bitterness is long and at least medium, quite dry. Medium bodied, smooth. Balanced and enjoyable.

IslandHaole (1286) - Misawa, JAPAN - SEP 21, 2017
Medium golden color, slightly hazy with a big foamy head. Smells like I'm peeling a grapefruit in a Christmas tree farm with a touch of Allspice on the side. Intense hops explode in your mouth, it takes a few sips to adequately adjust to the bitterness before you taste the light apricot and bubblegum sweetness of the malt that soon gives way to a solid bitter follow and aftertaste. Nice body and good mouthfeel. Really good stuff, a great Left Coast IPA just the way I like them!

Zapach trochę cebula, przechmielenie, też cytrusy. Smak gorzki, zalega, ale nie jakoś strasznie. Takie sobie. Ładna puszka :)

kaserov (922) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 29, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 Enlatada hace 7 meses. Color amarillo tirando a dorado, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de cuatro dedos de grosor (grumosa, similar al jabón y muy buena retención). En la descripción dice sin filtrar pero es completamente translúcida. Carbonatación media visualmente. Textura acuosa. Aroma placentero resinoso, con mucho pino, ligeros toques herbales, cítricos. En boca destacan el pino y los cítricos. Pomelo, cáscara de naranja. Ligero toque herbal y de nuevo, resina. Final de amargor medio y resinoso que se mantiene en postgusto mucho rato. Seca a más no poder. Probada también con 3 meses de enlatado y tanto el sabor como el aroma son más potentes. El postgusto amargo también. Clásica y rica.

FatPhil (16893) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 19, 2017
Tap (Alus Celle, Riga) (6:3:6:3+:13=3.1+)
Pretty typical modern hop stankiness in the aroma. Gold, tight head. Sweet caramelly malts, and fruity and stanky hops in the taste. Decent bitterness in the finish. Has some balance, not as messy as some modern IPAs. I can drink this.
