22 ounce bottle poured into a tulip. No bottle date, purchased 4/6/2014. Pours a hazy apricot yellow with 3 fingers of frothy off-white head that fades slowly. Aromas of caramel, citrus, floral notes, pine, light tropical fruit. Tastes of citrus, floral notes, bitter piney hops. Medium body with a dry finish. Juicy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Not my favorite IPA from Port but solid.

Darkmagus82 (1313) - - MAY 25, 2014
Transfer from BA on 3-31-12 - Served in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a hazy orange color with a nice white head with a decent persistence. The head eventually faded over time to give way to some moderate lacing. Smell – The aroma is mainly of citrus hop in nature. Grapefruit and lemon are quite strong, but are mixed with some orange and floral aromas as well. There is also a little bit of tropical fruit of banana and mango in the nose as well. Taste – The taste is a nice hit of citrus hop up front. It is bitter to begin the taste and only gets more bitter as the taste goes on. After the initial hop taste, some bready malty flavors work their way into the taste with some very lighter tropical fruit flavors. Even with the fruit flavors, as I indicated prior, the taste does not really sweeten, but instead bitters even more toward the end. It leaves a pleasant bitter citrus hop flavor in the mouth with a very light pine accent. Mouthfeel –The body is a bit on the creamier side with a moderate level of carbonation. It does suit the beer quite well as it really allows the bitter hop flavors to sit on the tongue. Overall – This is a pretty nice double, although like most of the West Coast beers not really worth the price in my opinion. There are better more affordable doubles out there. Worth a try, but not really one to go to on multiple occasions.
