Sampled at Noogfest High 5. The body was dark amber colored with a white head. The aroma was largely earthy perfume with some musk and grapefruit. The taste was grapefruit up front, but then turned a little floral. A little woody.

wavers1 (916) - Notown, California, USA - JUL 5, 2009
pours a thick oily syrup with very little late forming head. nice hazy dark amber color. pretty good flavor in the front that gets your hopes up, but falls flat in the back. but makes the palate pretty smooth for the amount of hops. not their best brew, just a lil unbalanced in the back and after taste.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Bomber. Pours hazy amber with a half finger beige head that faded quickly into a thin topper and leaves spotty lacing behind. The nose is floral hops and malt. The taste is citrus, malt, alcohol and tart grapefruit with a big resin bite in the finish that lingers on the tongue. Medium bodied. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2010 Sampled on 6/29/2009. This Imperial IPA pours a deep orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is piney and citrusy hop with a touch of orange. A medium bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are caramel and sweet, with a touch of fruitiness. The hops are citrusy and piney. The big juicy hops are balanced nicely by the sweet and fruity malts. Good carbonation. Hides the alcohol very well. There is a touch of alcohol bite at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Port Brewing 4th Anniversary Sampled on 6/11/2010. This Imperial IPA pours a hazy medium copper orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is citrusy and orange hops, caramel malts and lots more hops. A medium bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet, with lots of orange flavors. The hops are grapefruity, citrusy and piney. Lots and lots of hops. It could use a little more carbonation. A touch of alcohol, but not bad for a 10%. This is probably best sampled fresh as possible. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.

djcoke1 (9) - Arizona, USA - JUL 2, 2009 does not count
far fruiter then t thought it would be on the nose, but a nice treat. hops dominate the palate from start to finish with a "light on the tongue" malt feel.

redave (166) - squaw valley, California, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Pours a cloudy orange with a Great creamy ivory head with those very tight tiny velvet bubbles. Almost like cask! Aroma rather malty with some hops present. Pretty standard double IPA, nice grapefruit, pine, bitterness going on. Malt backbone. Wow, 10%, don’t really taste it, a little heat i guess, but i am feeling it though. Not as good as their 2nd anniversary if i remember right, but i would drink this again..

Great beer from Port Brewing! Tried this right after Pliny the Elder. This one is stronger and not as smooth but a great tasting brew no doubt.
