Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2008
Bomber. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a one finger head. Nose is floral hops, citrus and resin. Palate is a bit one dimensional with zero malt with some grapefruit and a bitter resin hop finish. Medium creamy mouth feel. It’s OK, but not one of Port’s best.

AmEricanbrew (6331) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 8, 2008
Murky light amber with a fleeting head. Big piney, floral, spicy hop aroma. Light/medium body. Good taste starts with bitter hops giving way to a light caramel sweetness in the middle, then a big fresh hop and spicy bite to finish. Yes, i do like So-Cal style ipa’s thank you. 11197

thomat (2525) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2008
Golden color with a small white head. Grassy and flowery notes. Bitterness and hops dominate. Medium to full body with a long dry finish.

Goodgrief (1869) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Nov. 2007 - Thanks for eaglefan538 for sharing. Golden yellow color with decent head and lacing. Aroma and flavor were super duper grapefruit, like chewing on a grapefruit rind. High bitterness as well. Some syrupy fruity maltiness as well, but man, this is a lot of grapefruit!

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Courtesy of foureyedgeek. Hazy gold body with a thin white head. Smells like a grapefruit cured in cat piss. Overbearingly bitter taste with no balance. Strong piney, resiny notes with a long, horrible, nearly gag-inducing finish. What’s the point..?

dpjuart (1094) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Bomber Courtesy of foureyedgeek. Pours hazy yellow with slight orange hues. Head is thin and foamy, white, dissipating to a small, filmy rim. Smells of a "cat urine infused grapefruit" (santoslhalper 2008) Jolly Rancher. Taste is mild bread with big citrusy orange/grapefruit middle, finishes with a big, but managable bitterness. Resiny quality throughout.

Naka (717) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Courtesy of foureyedgeek. A golden color with a bit of a fizzy head. A very even balance between citrus and floral hoppiness. Some pils character as well. The flavor has a nice grapefruit rind bitterness, but the actual fullness of the hop flavor is missing something. Has some good citrus toffee flavor. The body remains pretty light and refreshing. Bitter is left on the tongue, but is nice and not overwhelming.

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2008
From bottle courtesy foureyedgeek. Awesome hoppy nose, with cat urine, resin, ozone .. big. A bit of sewer gas, too. Hazy amber-orange with thin off-white head, some chunks. Medium-heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with medium fruity orange character, big bitterness with resin, pine, orange peels, and tons of hoppy notes. Finish is medium-heavy bitter with dry resiny after. Nice IPA, but the nose leaves a bit to be desired.

kyzr (1153) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Nice thick light amber pour with good sized head. Hoppy, green, citrus yet some sweet aroma. Flavor is that fresh hoppy/meaty citrus. Really smooth texture, with much more of a hoppy nose than the flavor lets on. Great balance betweet hops and malt. Maybe my bottle was old, and the hops settled down, but still very nice IPA.

DoubleBubble (107) - Mescal Lakes (wherever that is), Arizona, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Pours a hazy golden color with a 1/2" foamy white head. Decent lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops, and earthy smells. Flavors of hops and citrus. Smells a lot hoppier than it tastes, good beer and not as bitter as most IPAs. These are typically not my style of beer, but I was rather impressed by this beer.
