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%.

Bomber. Orange citrus hop aroma with some lemony citrus, floral and pine resiny hop notes as well. Pours dark golden colored with a huge, soapy off-white head with excellent retention and lacing. Starts with orange, lemon and grapefruity citrus hops with a bit of floral hops. Finishes extremely dry with a lot of pine resiny and floral hop bitterness. Starts well, but finishes quite harsh.

A crazy amount of hops going on in this beer. Tons of mandarin, lemon, zest, some grapefruit and even kiwi. Pours orange with big puffy white head. Very bitter finish with some tang and zesty astringency. A hint of booze on finish. Bottle from Julio’s Liquors.

Aromat: wyraźny karmel, alkohol, zioła, owoce, anyż. Niestety spore oznaki utlenienia.

Wygląd: barwa pomarańczowa, zamglona. Piana w kolorze cru, drobno pęcherzykowa, dość obfita, ale umiarkowanie trwała. Ładnie oblepia szkło.

Smak: bomba słodowa i słodka z karmelem, ciastkami, lekkimi tostami i zbożem. Wyraźna nuta alkoholowa. Goryczka w okolicach średniej, delikatna i umiarkowanie długa. Przyjemna, choć mogłaby być wyraźniejsza i dłuższa, zwłaszcza w odniesieniu do podstawy. Krągła do tęgiej pełnia, niskie wysycenie i słodko- alkoholowy finisz. Kolejne piwo z PB, które trafia do nas niezbyt świeże, przez co jego walory chmielowa są mocno przytłumione. Szkoda, bo to na chmielu opiera się to piwo i to ponoć na 15.

Bomber. Hazy darker orange pour with a pillowy white head. Citrus rind and pine resin. Hint of sweet malt. A bit chewy. A touch boozy. Quite good.

Cloudy orange amber with a light tan head. Tangy, sweet citrus. Muted honey, slight hint of raisins. Bitter. Strong malty backbone. Quite oily. Medium-straying-to-heavy body. Long finish. Decent bit of carbonation. Good.

Tap @ Porky’s Pizza Palace: Clear gold color with a small white head. Sweet perfumey hop flavor with a bitter finish.

Really something. Aromas and Flavors evenly matched and well-balanced. Hoppiness was citrus and floral with an herbal sense that was strong but not overly harsh. The malt base was mildly sweet but able to support the bold IPA character. Not too boozy either.
