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 freshly (bottled? NN) catered by BA-beersnake, merci! Shared at Freiburg Deluge Tasting Aug2017. - perfect Oldschool execution of abv-powered, but not-abv-fuming pine resins and exotic fruit jam. Thick hop oil nose damp (more than dank) with fresh citrus pith and pine resins, with just an edge of ripe mango alcohols. Flavour reminds me of candied lemon pieces mixed in a whipped passionfruit quark, dessertlike without letting the Crystal/caramalts get the better of its lupuline freshness. Remarkable rstraint for a lush 15 hop IIPA. Gorgeous to be able to sample this so fresh - a flat post-tasting 10cl residu worked wondes to pep up the Mrs’ Feierabendpils.

wojanex (280) - warszawa, POLAND - MAR 16, 2017
potężnie nachmielone, niebezpiecznie pijalne, bo alkohol świetnie ukryty, goryczka więcej niż solidna, ale nie zalegająca, bardzo solidne double ipa, za pierwszym razem byłem nim wręcz zachwycony, choć ta mieszanka piętnastu chmieli działa baardzo nasennie
