3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice gold in color with a nice half inch head sitting atop. Smell is grapefruit, citrusy hops. And I like it. Taste is more balanced, but there’s a very nice citrusy finish. Strikes me as a subdued, Hopslam’s little brother due to the amount of juiciness that’s coming through. Good beer that’s too easy to drink.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours a cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head. Head lasts a long time and laces the glass as you drink it. Smells of pine and grapefruit emmanate from the glass. Tastes like grapefruit, grass, some pine, and goes down with a sweetnees from the malt that makes it a solid IPA.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a lightly hazy gold with big white head. The aroma on this is fantastic, not sweet nor bitter but loaded with green smells along with citrus and tropical fruits. Flavor was balanced between a light maltiness and a medium bitterness, but overall just supremely loaded with fresh green hoppiness. Citrusy at times with grapefruit but also some pine and woody flavors to boot along with some light spice and pepper. Super hoppy without a dominating bitterness or lingering sweetness this one goes down fast for me.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one’s all about the nose!!! Floral notes with Douglas Fir, ripe grapefruit, and even a bit of sweetness. 14 karat gold with a nice creamy white head that leaves significant lacing all the way down the side of the glass. Missing it a bit in the flavor, however...all bitter hops and very little to balance it out. A very tasty beer but I’ve had tastier.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
