vtafro (3822) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2009
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.

Christian (11277) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2009
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.

boamr (309) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2009
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

17thfloor (2433) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2009
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?

evergreen0199 (2135) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2009
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!

toncatcher (228) - Santee - SAN DIEGO, California, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and some swet malt. Flavors were much the same, piny, citrus and some malt.

jimmiec (122) - Louisiana, USA - OCT 12, 2009
22-ox bottle NapaCabs.com: Aroma: citrus, fruity, floral, piney (hop), sweet (malt); Flavor: sweet, salty, caramel (malt), piney, bitter (hop); Appearance: hazy orange, off-white head; Mouthfeel: medium to full bodied (almost creamy), moderate carbonation with laces left on glass; Overall: smooth (nothing harsh about it), nice balance between hops and malty beer with lots of hops flavor. Don’t pick up the any alcoholic smell or taste but definitely feel it. A beautiful way to start the day.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2009
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.

presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 11, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy dark amber. Thin head. Big hop nose with some malt sweetness. Strong hop and alcohol flavour. Enough malt to support the IBU and ABV.
