On Tap

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.

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.
