Pizza Port Bressi Ranch
Carlsbad, CA

A gorgeous and tasty IPA from Pizza Port, though there's nothing surprising about that at this point. Aroma and flavors are well balanced--definite resin and floral hop notes along with citrus and a little biscuit and cracker malt. Decent citrus character in the aroma and flavor--not a lot of bitterness, especially compared to some other Port offerings. Very drinkable and tasty with pizza. A number of friends had recommended this one, so I had quite high expectations. While delicious, I was actually hoping for something more. Would drink again, especially with Pizza Port's pizza.

Half pint in pint glass at Pizza Port Carlsbad.

Almost glassy yellow beer with a tight white head. The lacing is impressive as it leaves more a coat than patches.

Re-dankulous hops emanate from the glass in shades of weed, tangerine, Meyer lemon, red grapefruit, pineapple, and cucumber.

I’m going in! I find dank hops that drip with orange oil, grapefruit, pine, and maybe some other resin. There’s an inner sweetness and saltine pale malt flavor, but in the end it’s as dry and rough as your skin on a windy frigid day.

It races across the palate, it’s bubbles as hooves, kicking at your tastebuds. Medium bodied beer that’s rough with carbonation, bitterness, and dryness.

Port has another winning West Coast IPA that packs a vibrant punch. The San Diego area truly is a Mecca of craft beer because places like Port have experience putting beers like this together from top to bottom.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. A Citra fresh hop IPA. Tulip.

A: Pellucid golden yellow with a mountain of white froth. Outstanding retention and lots of lacing. Good clarity.

S: Grainy, crackery malt lays a light foundation for tangerine, orange, and floral notes. Faintly grassy. There's a bit of mango in there.

T: Lightly grassy with notes of orange, guava, tangerine, and a touch of mango. Grainy malt provides a whisper of sweetness. Smooth lower moderate bitterness, devoid of astringency. The beer has a slightly lemony finish. Bitterness grows stronger near the end.

M: Upper light body with upper medium carbonation. Dry, sticky crisp mouthfeel.
