Pizza Port Pitstop

I drove by Carlsbad this evening and stopped at Pizza Port for a growler refill and a couple of pizzas. It was jammed - on a Tuesday. Incredible. I got a growler of the Girabaldi, a strong pale ale. It has a deep copper color and its a hoppy pale ale, but balanced with the right mix of malt. The alcohol (6%) was subdued despite the "strong" moniker. I wanted to try the IPA that was on tap - I think it was called Right Turn - but it was a double IPA and I did not want that much alcohol on a Tuesday. There are no reviews of either the Girabaldi or Right Turn on BeerAdvocate.
