Hop Friday IPA tap Take over
Oct 5th 2012

Port Brewing Hop 15
DBL IPA – 11% -189 IBUs First brewed in 2002 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the original Pizza Port location in Solana Beach, we searched high and low and combined 15 of our favorite hops which were added every 15 minutes to the boil. Somewhat darker than other Double IPA style beers, our beer oozes the hop goodness of pine needles, freshly squeezed citrus and ground spices which are only moderately tempered by a sweet malt finish. Thankfully, for all of us hopheads, we have decided to brew this beer more than once a year Rate Beer 100%

Port Brewing Mongo DBL IPA
DBL IPA 8.5% Medium to high body. Certainly not a “small” beer by any stretch of the imagination, yet remarkably easy to drink. A true stealth beer if there ever was one. Like most double IPA-style beers, the taste of hops that linger for days is at work in this beer. We like the way hops weave in and out of what little malt you can taste. Certainly, we brewed this as a hop-forward beer and think that after one sip you’ll agree with us.Rate Beer 99%

Green Flash West Coast IPA
IPA 7.3% This West Coast-Style India Pale Ale is extravagantly hopped, full flavored, medium bodied and copper colored. A menagerie of hops is combined throughout the brewing process to impart specific characteristics. Hops used include Simcoe for a unique fruitiness and grapefruit zest, Columbus for strong hop pungency, Centennial for pine and citrus notes, and Cascade for floral aroma.Rate Beer 99%

Redwood Curtain Mongrel DBL IPA
8.4% ABV  Original Gravity 18.40 IBU 60 Not your over the top Double IPA  Deep amber in color, tight lingering head, bready honey sweetness with grapefruit aromas, medium malt profile with a graceful NW hop finish.  Brewed with Gabrinus Pilsner and Munich malts, Zythos hops, and our proprietary English yeast strain.

Bear Republic Altered Beast

21st Amendment Hop Crisis
9.7% ABV – 94IBU The name is a tribute to the hop shortage a few years ago. A imperial IPA aged on oak using Columbus, Centennial and cascades as the bittering hops and dry hopping with Simcoe, Ahtanum, Amarillo, and Cascades. 99% Rate Beer

Heretic Evil Cousin
8% ABV – 100IBU Evil Cousin is Heretic’s take on a West coast imperial IPA. This beer is a bold, in-your-face hop monster. It has a light, easy drinking malt character that allows the hops to stand out. The hop character in this beer is intentionally on the dank side; big, sticky, and aggressive. This beer is for those of you who can’t get enough hops. Join us on the dank side. 97% Rate Beer

Lagunitas Daytime
4.6% ABV – 45 – IBU Sometimes you want a beer, then you realize how much crap you need to do before you call it a day. This is it. Nicely dosed with Big, Round Hop Flavors and a Toasty Malt Foundation to satisfy your every need. But it still lets you stay in the game to do what needs to be done. Yup. 95% Rate Beer

Flying Dog Double Dog Imperial Pale Ale on Nitro
11.5% ABV – 85 – IBU Double Dog Double Pale Ale Back by popular demand, our original “Wild Dog Release” is back, and this time it’s for good.

The abundance of hops will conjure some provocative aromas with hints of raisins and citrus
