JorisPPattyn (7888) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Draught Very clear golden beer, under thick-set dense, off-white head. Citric and passion fruit, intense aromas, also valerian (blackcurrant leaf). Dry-bitter, finishes very dry and on a mineral touch. Retronasal, the passionfruit hosp return. Feels quite carbonated - brewers speak of Burtonised liquor - dry finish, bit empty-ier. Very good, and again one that drinks away very easily.

On tap at Port Brewing. Golden copper in color. Pretty light in body. Light citrus, and some bitter hops. Not a whole lot going on in this beer. Pretty easy to drink and fresh. Good beer tot try.

A pretty decent pale. A nice balance of hops both piney and floral. Seemed on style for a west coast pale, but for this hop lover, it just didn’t wow me. Maybe I expect too much from Port.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Tap at Lost Abbey. Pours golden to light orange with webby lace. Incredibly grassy, biscuity, refreshing, herbal hoppy pale ale with noble hop squashiness and citrus peel fresh bitterness. Super quenching biscuity malt, amazing hop balance. Wow. Only surpassed by the Dead Feather Moon which rivals the best of Victory’s fabled pilsners. Really, really good.

Poured from a draft into an imperial pint at Hooley’s in La Mesa, Calif., on Jan. 23. Color was hazy pale orange. About an inch of head. Light white lacing on the top. Good looking circular film on the side. Smelled pale grainy notes first. Surprisingly also got citrus notes in there, too. Grainy and grassy as well. Taste was similar to the nose. Pale grainy malts up front, giving way to citrus (couldn’t pick one fruit) after. Very bitter and that stayed on my tongue after. Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. Pretty much what you would expect from a decent pale ale with the addition of citrus notes.
