On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad
11/10/13 – standard pint glass

9.5% DIPA Brewed with Nelson, Simcoe, and Mosaic. Hnnngg

A: Light burnished caramel gold color with substantial hop haze. Decent finger width of persistent paper white foam settles out to just a crown splashing ribbons of stick all across the glass at each sip.

S: Expressive tropical fruit bouquet filled with mango, grapefruit, and melon with gooseberries, guava berries, dank berries, snozzberries, Shari’s berries, and all kinds of other tropical berry goodness. Mix in some sappy pines and an extra dash of mary jane. There is a faint underlying malt presence of cracker and sugary caramels. Impressive hop bursted aromas.

T: Juicy guava, mango, and grapefruit with resinous and pervasive pine. Dank herbal flowers. All sustained by a foundation of light bready malt and some sugary caramel bits sprinkled in. There is a smoothened bitterness to the beer and the alcohol does assert towards the finish but is otherwise pretty well managed. Finishes out more herbal and dank. Fresh hop flavors and really well balanced. Awesome stuff. Dangerously drinkable at 9.5%.

M: Moderate filling from the malts but with a smooth and creamy consistency. There is a light drying in the finish and a mass of resinous leftovers.

D: Attrition is a good thing. Like an upgraded Poor Man’s.2.0 Dank and tropical with a firm malty balance. You are going to want to check this one out.

Snoogens for sure.

Another terrific DIPA from Pizza Port Carlsbad, self-described as "in your face" in the West Coast hoppy tradition. My immediate reference point after tasting the beer was Bear Republic's Racer X, in that it hid its higher alcohol levels quite well, and was loaded with a smoothly hoppy explosion of tangerine, and other citric flavors. This was a highly drinkable and balanced DIPA with a slight malt presence, but this one was all about the dry hopped aroma, flavor hops, and slightly "Juicy" satsuma tangerine like hops. The body doesn't seem huge, and finishes mostly dry. Another winner, in my book.
