Sampled on tap at PP Carsbad. Very clear light straw in color with minimal head. Subtle grass and floral nose. Bitter hop flavor through out with pine and a bit of sweet citrus backing. Clean but uneventful finish. Solid for a session able IPA but struggling to make my top 5 sessionable IPAs.

A- Very pale and clean hay straw color. 2-3 Finger white head that has decent staying power.

S- Nice hoppy punch to if for the size. Grapefruit. Clean and enticing.

T- Big hop character again with a touch of spice undertones.

M- Light, dry, and extremely quaffable. Spot on for the style.

O- A good effort. Not my favorite style, but this one fits the bill well and has solid hop notes.

To be accurate, it's "Sessionable." And the can says "Ponto S.I.P.A."

Golden color with a nice white foam. Plenty fizzy in the mouth. Extremely light body, not that there's anything wrong with that in a gulper. Piney aroma with a hint of flowers. Sharp and beyond crisp. Some astringency plus the resiny taste. The malt seems to be light to the point of vanishing.

Plenty bitter, and it lingers in the aftertaste. This certainly goes down easy, but it's so bitter it will appeal mostly to the hard core IPA dogs. It would clear the taste of salt water, at least. From the 16 oz can. Price was ten bucks for a six-pack at Whole Foods in Encinitas.

A sessionable IPA in a can..hmmm I am intrigued. Cool art work on the label. Poured into a pint glass. Color is light yellowish with a big(yet thin) frothy white head. Smells like pine cones with a hint of citrus. Mouthfeel is bitter, hops are prevalent, lots of carbonation, pretty thin on the tounge, pleasant. Reminds me of a pale ale, but with more hop character. Really nice brew to sip during a day of yard work, extremely sessioable brew with an abv of 4.5S%. My expierence with Pizza Port Brewing has been hit and miss, but I really enjoyed this brew, a nice IPA.
