Pours a medium off-white head with a surprisingly clear golden amber body. Aroma is medium sweet with orange, grapefruit, musk melon and faint alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet with grapefruit, light orange, pine and caramel. Medium-full sticky body with a medium dry finish. I really liked this beer as I do most of the Port Brewing brews.

Je suis pas fan ... Il y a un côté très brutale dans la façon que cette bière a d’amener les arômes en bouche ... J’imagine que le " massively hopped " est en cause ...Pour nos amis brasseurs, faudrait pas oublier que souvent " le mieux est l’ennemi du bien " Pour autant, ça reste correcte mais je préfère des bières qui se déploient en bouche avec délicatesse plutôt que ce style frontale. Je veux bien de l’impact dans l’amertume, mais là, je trouve ça trop "malté/biscuité" ( trop de "balancing malt" ?? ) ... ( a revoir ? )

Aroma of citrus, orange, caramel, pine resin, floral notes, malt, big hops.. Flavour is moderate sweet with a bitter finish. One to sip on slowly, it doesn’t drink easily at all. Be prepared to take some time... Another thick and heavy hop bomb from Port Brewing.

Smells great with fresh hoppy smell and sweetness. Looks to be little unfiltered. Taste very flavorful with strong hop flavor good sweet after taste.

Koskela (389) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Sweet maltieness mixes with a slight bitter and a moderate hop aroma from this hazy dull orangish brew with FOD. A bitter and citrusy hop flavor are upfront followed by straight malt sweetness and ending in a warm burning from the 10%. It's a full bodied brew with a good carb. Not a bad brew big beer big taste.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark gold with a white head. Taste citrus, pine, fruit. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours hazy orange brown with some white head. Nose is dank and citrus. Taste is thick dank, citrus and caramel. Hops overwhelm the malts. Good but a lot of work to drink.

Bacterial (2164) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Hazy amber pour with a fluffy white head. Massive citrus and pine hop nose, quite nice. Big beer with a strong malt presence with a ton of hop character. Some citrus and pine warming in the finish.

Bomber, 2015 vintage. Tropical fruit and grapefruit hop aroma with slight pine resiny hops and a bit of booze. Pours amber-orange colored with a large off-white head with moderate retention and lacing. Starts with tropical fruit and grapefruit hop flavors. Finishes dry with bitter pine resiny hops and a little bit of an alcohol burn. Pretty good, but the booze in the finish is not something you expect from an IPA and doesn't fit in the overall flavor profile.

Aroma is hop/candy, pine and sweetish malts. The flavor is fruit/berries, hops, mild/medium sweetness in the middle, malts and a very long and very bitter/mild heat in the finish.
