3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Super Deli Mart. Pours dark cloudy golden with a thin lingering head. Aroma is grapefruit hops and biscuity malt. Taste is pine and citrus hops with a thick bready malt body. Really good but tastes more like a DIPA grab bag than a really intentioned beer. Pales in comparison to Hop 15, which is world class for this style. Also kind of surprising that Port doesn’t do something different and unique each year for their anniversary brew.

Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Quite malty aroma, caramel, sugar, syrup. Some hoppy grapefruit and orange zest. Fabulous palate, thick and rich body, with just the right carbonation. Bitter finish, long. Mostly bitter with very pleasant sweet tones for balance. Yum!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
American beers tasting at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours golden with white foam. Aroma, in addition to some herbaceous and resinous, shows alcohol. Taste conforms that, with loads of bitterness and a rather during alcoholic feeling. Extreme. Somehow unbalanced.

From Zombier. 6? 66cl. In Teku glass. Playing Broken Sword 4. Very resinous. Reminds me my beloved Pseudosue but this one is just a tiny step below because its higher ABV, which is very well hidden but goes up to the head pretty quickly
