Pizza Port Pine Bomb
If you're near Ocean Beach I recommend stopping at Pizza Port Ocean Beach and grabbing a pint of its new Bronx Bomber IPA. It is a sharp, pine-forward IPA - so piney George Brett would be proud. This year I have had several IPAs with amorphous flavor profiles - pine? citrus? earthiness? - I couldn't tell. There is no ambiguity with Bronx Bomber, it's piney through and through. In a world where the IPA is now ubiquitous, it's rare when one jumps out at you. The draft-only Bronx Bomber IPA is a stand-out beer. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Bronx Bomber are going to support ALS, or Lou Gehrig's Disease, but altruism, while important, is not why I recommend this beer. I like this beer because it's a flat out delicious IPA.
