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.

Poured an orange color with aromas of citrus, hops, light pine and some malt. Flavors were fresh citrus and subtle pine with light malt. A solid beer that was enjoyable in the heat, I could drink a lot of these with out too much complaints.

22 oz. bottle from notes. Pours a clear orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma has a nice combination of moderately sweet malt and fresh citrus hops. A little hint of pine and other fruits round out the nose. The flavor has a wonderful balance to it. A nice caramel and crystal malt base works in combination with the citrus flavors that leads to a nice hoppy bitter finish. Medium/full bodied IIPA.

Hazy orange, frothy offwhite head. Fruity aroma, rubbery and malty notes. Flavour has complex hoppiness, caramel, jammy sweetness and alcohol. Creamy, solid mouthfeel. Lasting bitterness. Very nice.

Bamsen78 (3996) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle @ Vinterslaget på Østersøen, Sønderborg. Pours cloudy amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt and hops, with some estery touches. Sweetish taste of malt, caramel, and fruit complemented by bitter, hoppy notes and maturation flavours. Slightly smoky and quite bitter aftertaste. Good. Very good. One of the best beers withing the style I have had.
