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%.

GABF 2003 This IPA has a bundle of flavors that make you want to get on down from the get go. Hops are prominant but not overwhelming. Light cinnamon with citrus flavors spread over the bottom. Finishes with a spices. Very nice.

pours rich hazy copper with small white head. aroma is tons of orange, grapefruit, tangerine, and pine. drinks with a ton of bitter hop up front and citrus through out. finishes with the bitter hops and a little malt. 10% is hidden well. long lasting citrus after taste.

Bomber. Pours a nice orange with a good-sized white head. Aroma is not very hoppy for a DIPA, with lots of caramel-y malt notes with a little bit of citric hops and just a touch of alcohol. The front end of the taste is mostly the same with the sticky sweetness of malt, but it rounds out into some more of those citric hop notes, with a little bit of warmth from the alcohol. Very nice! Im a big fan.

8/17/04. On draft at Pizza Port in Solana Beach, CA 8/17/04. Poured a hazy amber orange with a pretty slight head. Just a creamy, tan dusting on top, but if you stir up the beer a little bit you get a pretty nice little head. Lacing is lumpy and sparse after its initial awesomeness. Its amazingly sparkling while its there. Aroma is very resinous, some straight gumball and pine. Flavor is incredibly strong. Slightly medicinal, and hoppy every which way-- unripened citrus, pine, sap, stinging, bitter, some bazooka gum, floral, leafy, grassy dryness, resin, and a pretty big malt backbone (it would have to be big for you to detect any at all) that is still almost totally overwhelmed by the hops. Body is medium-full, creamy with carbonation. A bit harsh still. Some roundness coming through on the finish, a huge, prickly bitter and dry flourish. Potent. And a bunch of grapefruit and some orange zest (and pith) in there as well. Very delicious. But still not quite Dreadnaught.

This beer really did it for me. Beautiful hopping. Smell and taste were very pleasant. So present, yet so well behaved were the hops. Yet, it doesnt linger in your mouth like many other hopped up brews. I could drink this all day long.
