On Tap - Pizza Port San Clemente
Notes taken on 05/17/14
A: An impatient pour from the pitcher yielded a massive cake of khaki colored suds. Took a few minutes for it to die down to a manageable film and top off. Has a darker caramel amber body with good clarity to it. Looks quite delicious with waves of sticky cling climbing across the glass.
S: Very floral hops on the nose with bright notes of tangerine, pine, and peach/apricot. There is a little Sensi herb going on as well albeit not incredibly potent. Lightly bready pale malts underneath. Smells freshly hopped with lots of lovely candied citrus notes.
T: Tangerine hops with resinous pine, florals, and a touch of the green herbage on the finish. Generous amounts of fresh hops give a nice upper moderate level of bitterness and a real resinous linger to the beer. There is a comforting amount of bready malt sweetness at the base bringing everything together. Has as great balance to it considering and the alcohol is really well masked throughout. This one just really hits the spot.
M: The feel is moderate to light with a nice even level of carbonation that gives a smooth lush consistency. There is a good amount of hop bitterness without becoming too sharp on the palate and a dry resinous finish.
D: Pseudo is not exactly mind blowing these days but it definitely has some great attributes and is very well put together. Nicely balanced with solid crushability factor.
The pitcher did not stand a chance.

On tap at Pizza Port in San Clemente, CA.
Pours a hazy gold with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a herbal hop flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
