Ponto S.I.P.A. (Sessionable India Pale Ale)Ponto S.I.P.A. (Sessionable India Pale Ale)
Notes: Named after the southernmost beach and surf break in Carlsbad, Ponto truly embodies the spirit of the southern California lifestyle. Refreshingly light in body and low in ABV, there is certainly no sacrifice in hop character with this sessionable IPA. With a hefty dose of American and New Zealand hops, this beer is bright and filled with hints of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. Rumored to be a favorite among the disc-golf community, this beer is the perfect accompaniment to any outdoor activity.
Hops: Crystal, Citra, Rakau, Motueka, Waimea, Southern Cross.

A - Very light in color. Looks like a pilsner. Nice two finger white head with very large bubbles. Very nice lacing left from the held. Bright yellow beer that doesn't look at all like a IPA.

S - BIG hops right up front. Very piney. Smells bitter with a little bit of mango thrown in. This smells like a huge DIPA.

T - Very resinous pine and sweet malts. Lots of sweetness in the back. Very clean IPA flavor that you would never believe is 4.5%.

M - Very light and a decent amount of carbonation. Leaves a hoppy flavor on the palette.

O - I'm really loving the wave of session IPAs hitting the market. Another great beer from Port Brewing!

Hazy straw color with white head. Aroma has nice floral and citrusy hop notes with some nice green tea. Taste follows, fresh, citrusy, green ice tea, medium bitterness on the finish. Light body with medium effervescence. Really fresh and easy to drink, a true session IPA.

Had it a while back. I recall the aroma and flavor being good but the mouthfeel just too thin and the hop bill just eh...love this brewery and I’d happily try again for free but this isn’t one I’ve gone for again since that time.
