On Tap - Pizza Port San Clemente & later from growler
Notes taken on 05/17/14

A: Dark caramel amber with a semi-translucent look and a smallish layer of khaki cream that settles over top. Good retention effort with a few sticky suds left clinging to the glass wall. Looks quite tasty.

S: The aroma on this one is all hop flowers ripe with pink grapefruit and tangerine peel. I get some lesser notes of lemony pine with a soft herbal sway to it. Touch of bready malt underneath and some light caramel sweetness to round out the nose. Very fruity and fresh.

T: Great balance of hop bitters and bready malt sweetness. Just the right amount of high hop bitterness to it. Sticky and resinous citrus, grapefruit, tangelo, pine, and some mild earthy herbs. Alcohol is totally masked throughout. Very dry bitter and resinous just how I like. Straight West Coast traditions here.

M: Moderate to lighter body with a nice creamy consistency given from the carb levels. Good hop pucker across the palate with a dry and resinous finish. Light oily residues coat the mouth and linger.

D: Probably one of my favorite offerings sampled from San Clemente and very close to the Pseudo IPA actually. Its fruity and dank and resinous with a drying pucker and superb drinkability. Yet another short lived PP growler.

On tap at San Clemente.
Pours a crystally golden orange with clean white head

Smell- lots of hop citrus, some bubblegum, bready malt
Taste- delicious juicy citrus hops, sweet-sour Valencia orange, grapefruit, subtle tropical fruit, herbal hop notes, again a touch of bubblegum, chewy malt, finishes citrusy
Feel- alcohol is there hut not overpowering, somewhere between IPA and dIPA in booziness and feel

Big fan of this! A winner for sc Pizza Port

On-tap at Pizza Port San Clemente

Pours a clear golden orange with a white head. Nose opens with citrus peel, floral, and pine hops. Nose is quite dry, but there is a bit of bread and toasted malt. The flavor is very bitter and very dry. Tons of pine hop bitterness with only some mild citrus and just a hint of tropical fruit. Some bread malt, maybe a hint of toffee.
