Hop 15 - Double IPA - Port Brewing (San Marcos, California) - 10 % ABV

Poured from the bottle this beer pours a hazy shade of amber with a ginormous head that leaves well pronounced lacing. The aroma is also substantial with all sorts of hop aromas coming through. There are smells of citrus, tropical fruits, and pine just to name a few and not unlike the smell this brew has alot of different flavors going on. The taste follows the nose pretty well and has a bold hop character (15 different hops) with big citrus, some tropical fruit, pine, and a bit grassy. The mouthfeel is pretty smooth with medium carbonation and there is no lack of bitter here. There is a malty sweetness for sure but at 10% ABV it is to be expexted and it works.

Rating 8.9 out of 10

Tasting notes : Big bold hop profile, above average malty sweetness, solid bitterness and very aromatic.


Mr. Beer Jangle

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals etc...so pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.
