Sampled on the beer engine at PP Solana Beach. Pint glass, cellarish temps.

Appearance: Cloudy orange yellow topped by a thick and frothy white head that settled very slowly into a thick cap of foam. LEeft stick and huge sheets of foam as I greedily quaffed the beverage.

Smell: Very pleasant and floral orange citrus hop bouquet. Not very complex, but OMFG was it salivation-inducing.

Taste: Hop tea - served British style. Sprucy orange hoppy goodness mixed with an ided tea-like astringency and flavor. Sweetish malt backing. Overall, very fruity and tangy/bitter. Very nice.

Mouthfeel: Very very very very smoth and clean, surprising for a IIPA.

Drinkability: moremoremoremoremoreohwhatthehellI'llhaveanother. Yeah, this is frickin' awesome. I think I had three of these it was so damned good.

Named after the lupilin glands in hops and the flavor that is released during the boil, this is another exceptional brew from Pizza Port Solana Beach. As I write this review, we're enjoying a growler of this outstanding, perfectly hopped gem. I'm surprised that the alcohol content is not much higher than the taste would indicate. But that's a good sign. The hops are sensational, and the malt comes through in classical Port Brewing fashion. It's another perfectly brewed, San Diego style double IPA.

EyeChartBrew is on the mark about his beer. I give this beer a 4.6 rating. It's like no other double IPA, and is truly worth a trip to Solana Beach.
