From a 22 oz. bomber bottle with no bottling/freshness date, a blurb along the left side of label, sampled at cellar temperature in an imperial pint glass. Poured a unfiltered cloudy orangey golden with a frothy, foamy white head, good retention, minimal amount of sticking. A hoppy nose, softer than I was expecting, floral, piney and citric, a tad musty, with a light backing of grainy, bready malts, traces of butter as well. Good medium carbonation and a crisp, dry, mildly hop slick, smooth medium bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant, easy drinkability, relaxed hoppy taste with a soft, dry rind bitterness, grainy malts and a touch of butter, the alcohol meshes with the hops for a soft spicy warmth, the hops are also oily in the finish, a grainy, hop fruity, oily finish. Not a bad IPA, but I have a feeling I should have purchased this last fall when it was fresh.

Was concerned originally thinking this was a 8 month old IPA, maybe it was, but it still rocked my world. Very aromatic, citrusy and fruity. Golden color, with a full white head. I usually don’t like wet hop beers, they’re usually too grassy and herbal for me, but this example definately avoids that and concentrates mainly on citrusy, grapefruit like hop flavors. There is still a little grass. Port/Lost Abbey is really doing some spectacular things.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2008 bomber....appearance: belgian like in appearance. translucent orangey light-brown with thin white head...aroma: sweet, pineapple citrus. great assertive nose that jumps out of the glass....taste: nice hop profile that shows presence of flowers, pineapple, and grapefruit....overall, a very enjoyable IPA.

10/25/08 pours a orange,semi-transparent, pour with a soapy white head aroma of sweet tropical fruits, tons of pineapple, and also some dankness to it. flavors of citrus hops, semi-sweet, with a mild bitterness to it that went well into the finish . very drinkable and palatable. 8/4/8/4/15 = 3.9

Thanks to dirty_martini for the trade! Gold color with no head. Strong aroma of Cascade hops, even though they apparently aren’t in this beer. The taste is very vegetable-like with the fresh, raw hops. Not much maltiness. Good, not great.

Aroma was loaded on hops with hints of citrus and pine. Flavor was mostly hops with citrus hints throughout. Very tasty.

JK (4615) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Aroma is filled with fresh hops and a pine & citrus character. Flavor has grapefruit and herbal hops. A little hazy. Good beer, but the disappointing, mediocre flavor doesn’t live up to the excellent aroma.

Bottle; Poured a gold with hints of orange. One of the more gold IPAs that I have seen. Didnt get much head; small to medium and white. Aroma of citrus hops and grapefruit; some malt, but much more hops in the aroma. Really good flavor and body; Clean dry finish. Besides the grapefruit, caramel malt, pine and yeast. Deserves its high rating.

A 22-oz bottle shared by badgerben. Pours a golden orange brew with a medium sized white head that dissolves to a fine film. Nice lacing. Aroma is very hoppy, grapefruit, some herbs, more citrus peel, and even a hint of lemon. Taste is medium body with tastes of caramel, grapefruit and pine hops. Finish is sweet and a good hop bitterness.

Bottle: Poured a hazy gold with a thick white head, nice thick lacing. Intense hoppy aroma of citrus and grapefruit. Taste is more hops with huge amounts of citrus. Nice, dry lingering bitters finish. Thanks dirty_martini for sending this.
