Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, - JAN 12, 2013
655 ml bottle. Hazy golden colour. Tall white fluffy head that clings to the glass. High carbonation level. Strong and bold piney grapefruit hops aroma. Sharp hoppy bite. Very bitter, but there’s sweet caramel to balance. Peppermint/spearmint in the finish. Classic crisp hop bomb, a very nice one. Love it.

Pours cloudy orange with ample white head. Amazing smell of grapefruit and light citrus, very inviting. Huge juicy hop flavors of citrus, pine, and some caramel malt. Dry finish with long-lasting bitter pine taste. Excellent IIPA.

ABT_S54 (286) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2015
65cl bottle served in a shaker. Deep orange/amber colour with a pillowy white head which lasts throughout and some good lacing. Aroma upfront is juicy and oily hops - orange, pineapple, grassy which considering the density of the head and shape of the glass is very pronounced. Mouthfeel is medium to thick (for its style) and sticks your lips together with the honey sweet maltiness which then turns to the hops which assault your tastebuds in a good way. I would guess at the IBU being in excess of 120 here. If it wasn’t for the ABV this would be quite an easy drink to consume a lot of. It needs to be treated with respect at 11% and such a large bottle. A worthy addition to the Port brewing lineup.

TET (2207) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2015 650 mL bottle, 11.0%. An orange beer, a head is big and blond. Aroma is great with lots of tropical fruits, mangos, pineapples, some pine needles, also marshmellows, caramel malts in the background. Taste has caramel maltyness, fruit candies, tropical fruits and lots of pine needles. Strong bitterness is balancing the strong maltyness. The bitterness and hint of alcohol is noticed in the throat. Full bodied, not sticky. The great beer, strong maltyness and strong bitterness but balanced.

Totalnie ekstremalna IIPA, z mocarnym żywiczno-cytrusowym aromatem, totalną pełnią smaku, totalną goryczką i totalną owocowością. Totalny jest też poziom alkoholu, tak jak i totalne jest jego idealne ukrycie. Totalne piwo.

halfonit (1244) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Pours a hazy orange golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is of big time hops, floral, citrus, bread, malts, and some booze. Carbonated mouthfeel. Still a little hot. I think another 6 months would have aged this nicely. Flavor is very similar to what i said about the aroma.

mmargarucci (177) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Aroma is filled with herbal hops and sweet caramel. Taste is first sweet then followed by bitter oily grassy hops. Beer is full bodied but missing a nice crisp refreshing palate. Good but not great.
