COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in 2002 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the original Pizza Port location in Solana Beach, we searched high and low and combined 15 of our favorite hops which were added every 15 minutes to the boil. Somewhat darker than other Double IPA style beers, our beer oozes the hop goodness of pine needles, freshly squeezed citrus and ground spices which are only moderately tempered by a sweet malt finish. Thankfully, for all of us hopheads, we have decided to brew this beer more than once a year. Look for Hop 15 to make appearances from time to time when space permits us to brew this, one of our favorite ales.
Alcohol content varies. Spring 2012 batch is 11% ABV. Spring 2013 is 10%.

Citrus green hop aroma straight to the nose from this hazy orange brew with an outrageous off white head of coarse bubbles. Bitterness at first for a second then hop flavor followed by the sweetness of the Malt and a medium body. The aftertaste is hoppy and slightly bitter and a slight warming from the alcohol.

Barwa złota, delikatnie opalizuje. Piana średniopęcherzykowa, pozostawia lacing na ściankach szkła. Aromat dość subtelny, owoców cytrusowych i tropikalnych z bardzo delikatna, nikłą nutką iglakową co wskazuje, ze piwo ma pewnie kilka miesięcy. Smak dojżałych owocow tropikalnych z cytrusami, spora, przyjemna goryczka grejfrutowa.
