Burnt orange pour with a nice aroma of pine, peach, grapefruit, some tropical fruit, sweet caramel, and alcohol. It has a very small off white head and little carbonation. The taste is thick, alcoholic and sweet, kind of like their other double IPA’s. I tasted caramel, peach, tropical fruit and a big piney finish with the alcohol burning the throat. Hate to say it, but I was a little dissapointed in this brew from a great brewer. I would have liked a tad more carbonation and less solvent like alcohol. Still pretty nice though.

I scream underrated! Odd for Port Brewing. Anyways......A cloudy orange appearance with a white head. The aroma contains alot of pine as well as oranges and lemons. The flavor is like an orangesicle (remember those?) I loved em. Some pine and lemons in there as well. This is perfectly balanced. Overall a kick ass IIPA!

Pours deep opaque copper brown with a frothy finger thick head. Nose is subtle, but smooth, molasses sweet and pine hops. The flavor is also smooth, with sweet citrus like Mandarin oranges, floral hops and a molasses like sweetness. Smooth on the palate and smooth finish. Quite enjoyable.

scoth (528) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Pours cloudy orange-amber, with a very thin beige head, fine lacing considering how small the head is. Strong, mouth-watering bouquet of pine, flowers, grass and caramel. Medium bodied, low carbonation, dry. Strongly bitter pine, grass and grapefruit flavor, some light floral notes, and caramel underneath it all. Lingering aftertaste.

Bottle courtesy of ericandersnavy. Hazy orange. Hints of hops and a touch of alcohol on the nose. Stings the tongue but has an excellent sweet hop profile.
