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.

any idea if this beer is hanging around OB for a while or was it one and done?

It was one and done. It was from some promotional hop blend. PP OB's board cam still shows it on tap. Worth getting while you can.
