This one is back for another round this year. Flavored (slightly) with pomegranate and blood orange. Not a lot of fruit flavor. Plenty of hops.

Warm and tangy. Rich and fruity. Bitter and earthy, even a little dirty. Sharp finish. Drinkable but not a memorable IPA for me. On tap at Pizza Port Ocean Beach.

On-tap at FFF XV and poured into tasting glass.

A - Pours a really cool pinkish/red color, white frothy head, spotty lace, thin collar, wisps on top.

S - Grapefruit, citrus hoppy notes, slight biscuit. Pretty straight forward citrus hoppy notes, although I'm not complaining.

T - A little more complex. A nice level of hops, big on the citrus, nice malt profile, some grapefruit and sweetness on the finish.

M - Lighter side of medium, good carbonation, oily hop finish.

O - A solid IPA that's pretty cool-looking. Pizza Port always has the good stuff, this one is no different. Would def have again.

Shaker pint glass with a clear pink brew inside. Very cool and unique obviously. A bit of white head. The aromas were fresh and citrusy of lemon , lime, and grapefruit. Medium bodied. clean and lean flavors with tasty hop flavors and bitter pungency. The finish was on the drier side. Liked it alot !

Beer for Boobies YEAAAAHHH!!!!

A: Pours a Red Dye Number 5. It’s a fuzzy pink IPA. Clear and effervescent. Whimsical like a raspberry soda pop. Soft pastel pink rim of head and just drapery of lacing here.

S: Smells like another gapefruit bomb! Just danky and herbal with a citrus twist. Orange and some pine. Very subtle pale malt.

T: Tastes super juicy with hops and quite hempy. Lots of herbals going on here. Slightly sweet with malt nonexistent. Pine and citrus. No ABV present. Almost wet hop like. Slight sugary trail of breadcrumbs but this one is just super hoppy.

M: Very light in body. Creamy with a sticky sleek mouthcoat and nice dry crispy finish.

D: Quite sessionable. A light refreshing IPA that is all about my two favorite things. Hops and Boobies.

I drink for the cure!

Chilled growler into a glass. From the ever-awesome Sideswipe. Thanks, John.

A: Pours a brilliantly clear ruby red with a frothy, slightly pink head that retains well and leaves good lace.

S: Mildly weed-like, but this is dominated by citrus (think tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest). A very light pale malt sweetness.

T: Citrus hop juice with a touch of weed and pine needles. But it's firmed up on the back end by a solid backbone of pale malt, which imparts some sweetness without overwhelming the hop profile. It's certainly the power of suggestion, but I feel like I can taste raspberry skins or something similarly tannic on the back end.

M: Medium-bodied. The beer finishes dry. It has ample carbonation to clean up the [mild] residual bitterness. No trace of the booze.

O: I'm reluctant to review beers I like, as it brings my average up. But due to requests from my trading partners, I will start to be a little more even-handed in the reviews I upload. This is one example of a great beer.

At Pizza Port Carlsbad

The beer pours an orange, pink color with a pink frothy head. The foam dissipates leaving a thin white coaster and excellent lacing. The aroma is signature Pizza Port IPA. Hemp and citrus forward with a biscuity malt backbone. Taste is bitter hops. Hemp, orange,and grapefruit are showcased. The finish is dry and bitter. The beer is medium bodied with an appropriate level of carbonation making it very drinkable. Another excellent IPA from Pizza Port. I love this place!
