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%.

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

kaserov (688) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 31, 2017
Color naranja, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación media. Aroma increíble a malta y resina, si se agita aparece lúpulo y un toque cítrico. El sabor es un poco más indescriptible, consiste en todo lo anterior pero nada está definido. Aun así, rica. El amargor es leve y no muy duradero, lo cual se agradece. El alcohol no se percibe ni por asomo. Gran DIPA.
