A mostly yellow, slightly orange pour. Good 1/2" white head. The aroma drops all those fruity notes throughout. Orange, tangerine, pine, mango, floral, its all in here.

Light body malt bill, good dank resin that isn't heavy. Strength is just right, not boozy. Everything works very well here, one of my favorite ipas in the world.

Good backstory to the name of the beer too. Herbal hop mouthfeel, lots of tangerine tastes. Easy to see why this was a gold medal winner at GABF.

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.
