4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark amber pour with little head. Balanced Double IPA, heavy hop notes: citrus, pine, some floral and grapefruit, but also has some malt characteristics. Ten percent not too offsetting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy amber with a small white head. Strong hoppy aroma with citrus, pine and peach, and some alcohol. Sweet hoppy flavour, quite spicy with intense bitterness. Hops and alcohol compete to give a warming feeling.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark orange color with a nice amount of head. I don’t know what this smells like it but isn’t pretty. Smell bad enough to the point I’m not sure I want to drink it. Has a hoppy tangerine taste it. Taste much better than the smell but I’d have to say the worst beer I’ve had from Port Brew

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Map Room sometime in August. Pours an unclear syrupy orange with a small white froth. This is a syrupy mess of a beer, piney, cheesy, super salty, bitter, loaded with vegetables. What the hell happened here?

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beermerchants here in the UK. Orange pour with an average white head. Pleasant hoppy, fruity aroma. Fruity, hoppy, sweet, malty, hint of pineapple, spicy taste. Alcohol very well hidden. This DIPA is not as complex as some but very drinkable all the same. Can’t go wrong if you choose Port Brewing. Thumbs up from me!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle at a tasting. Nose is fruity hops. Some grapefruits. Taste is also quite hoppy. Piny hops with some sweetness. Well made but not much complexity to me. Finish is bitter with fruity hops.
