Taken from notes July 23rd, 2011.

Had on draft at Pizza Port Ocean Beach location.

Pours a clear yellow-gold with a one finger head. Pine, grapefruit and pineapple juice on the nose. Medium bodied on the palate with a creamy carbonation. A nice lasting bitterness gives this beer real length on the palate. To me this is a great example of what West Coast IPA's are all about. Delicious!

Pizza Port
Ocean Beach, CA

Clear orange and amber with a thin nearly white head. Sticky globs of lacing dot the glass.

Citrus and pine aromas combine, but this doesn't have quite the aromatic punch that some other Port IPAs have.

Relatively bitter for a single IPA awash with citrus flavors, particularly grapefruit and some orange. Simple, classic, very tasty.

Medium mouthfeel. Incredibly drinkable.

A classic, signature Pizza Port IPA...certainly goes great with anchovy pizza (but what doesn't?).

Poured on tap at Churckey DC into a snifter glass.

A very clear yellow eighteen carat gold body of lemon, with good rising carbonation, and real nice lacing as well. Head is an off white and settles nicely to a solid collar.

Nose brings a lot of mushy fruit hop angle. Grapefruit rich, nearly rotten and decaying, and a good interesting blast of salt and brine to this also. Pickled. Very interesting.

Mushy fruit hits the palate hinted on the nose of grapefruit. Finish is very resiny and coating, with a large pine and saltiness character mixing with a nice sweetness almost charring and dry.

Overall this is quite a fascinating IPA and taste profile have never had one like this. It's probably not what I gravitate too, but I would like to have this once in awhile it feels very special.

Pizza Port seems to be kind of the west coast IPA, so a single seemed fun to try.

A - Orange-yellow beer with a foamy, white head that left some decent spots behind.

S - Pine, citrus, grapefruit, bitter. Not as complex or inviting as some of their other IPAs, and lacks the complex hop profile, but still good.

T - Mostly pine, with some citrus and grapefruit coming up front as well. Solid, although unremarkable. It's a good standard IPA.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O - Not bad, although somewhat non-descript considering how many amazing hoppy beers Pizza Port kicks out.

Notes from 08/26/11

A: My pint of Jetty arrived a superclear goldenrod color with some amber hints to it. Nice 2 finger white cap with relatively low retention and some sticky lace that dots the glass.

S: Aromas are honey sweet breads and fruity citrus. Hints of mango. Not super pungent with hops like one may expect from a Port IPA.

T: A definite caramel toffee sweetness overall. Good bitterness across the palate. Citrus and some danky grass. Sweet biscuity malt backbone.

M: Lighter to med. body. Nice creamy texture. Moderate carb. Slight sticky mouthcoat. Dry finish.

D: An all around solid IPA. More distinct with malty sweetness than some other Port IPA's. Good hopping but not in your face.

The only real knock is that PizzaPort makes some far superior IPA's these days.
