hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Rated on 6-19-2010 (Bottle) This beer pours a small, smooth, fizzyu ivory head that mostly diminished, orange golden body, no lacing, and fast rising carbonation. The Aroma is caramel malt, citrus, pine hops, and hints of fruit. The Taste is semi-sweet, boozy, caramel malts, citrus, and pine hops. The Palate is sharp and this beer is medium bodied. In conclusion, this beer is quaffable, a sipping beer, and a beer for hop heads.

Very hazy unfiltered orange-brown pour. Thick with a light tan head. Malty aroma with lots of cream and caramel. Malty flavor with lots of grain. Honey notes with bitter hops. Alcohol noticeable but not overpowering.

laiti (5565) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2013
65 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Rated on 25.03.2010
Aroma is somewhat fruity with hops, sweetness and distant floral notes. Flavour has caramel, exotic fruits, hops, some alcohol and biscuits. Too low on hops, too high on alcohol and sweetness. Probably would have been better fresh.

Bottle labeled 4íth Anniversary Ale shared with daje
Orange, big frothy head. Smells of pine, honey, some smoked malts, grass and herbs. Heavy sweet, fruity, alot of malt back bone. Very nice. Heavy bitter, pine and alot of resins and grass. Almost full bodied, super oily, average carbonation. This one had a surprising hop bill untypical what iíve tried from Port Brewing earlier, and iím glad they donít just make similar beers with different malt backbone. This one is very good. Hope to try another anniversary too

Backlog. Had on draft (i think) at Lost Abbey a year or so ago, and never realized they had separate entries. Poured a bright, hazy orange body. Aroma is fresh citrus and bitter pine hop along with a nice malt presence. Mouthfeel is bitter with notes of citrus tang, bitter pine, grapefruit, orange, and sweet malt.

PhillyCraft (3143) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Poured a slightly hazy glowing gold color. Delicious malty ipa with some lemon and orange peel present. Some bitter effect in the finish. Nice and tangy. Other notes of straw, pine, and slight kiwi. Very good.
