Port Brewing Company "Hop 15" DIPA, California (22oz)

SKU #1198003 95 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is a world-class brew that’s sure to please and excite any true IPA lover. It’s brewed with a blend of 15 different domestic and imported varieties of hops that are added to the beer every 15 minutes. The result is a complex and flavorful selection, with layers of varying degrees of hop influence, from juicy orange, apricot and tropical fruit notes to floral hop aromas and even slightly sticky resinous flavors on the palate. The mouthfeel is robust and full, with a solid sweet-malt core that grounds all of the hoppy characteristics and ample carbonation that keeps the palate from feeling too heavy or cloying. A pleasant astringency holds on long through the finish.  (11/2015)

K&L Notes

This uber-hoppy beer comes from San Diego's Port Brewing Company. "First brewed in 2002 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Pizza Port in Solana Beach, Hop 15 was imagined and designed by Tomme Arthur and Jeff Bagby." It's a double IPA and not for the faint of heart. But hop lovers will fall head over heels for this beauty.
