A big time IPA. Really enjoyed this double IPA. Has a really fresh hoppy flavor to it. Incredible palate and great earthy aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Enjoyed at SD Toronado. Poured into a pint glass a slightly hazed amber color with a 1 finger white head. Danky, thick aroma of grapefruit, orange rind, and slight pine. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet grapefruit start gives way to a really nice building bitterness. Nice lace left on the glass. Overall, a very solid and enjoyable DIPA. Easy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Like a lot of things by Port, and had never saw this before, so I thought it might be worth it. Pours a hazy golden/bronze color with a big puffy light tan head. Smells of citrus, a lot of fresh hops, a bit of a floral smell, and a hint of alcohol warming on the nose. Tastes like a bunch of hops, mixed in with some light citrus, a bit of dried fruit, and a little bit of a floral mix, with no real alcohol bite. Decent body for an IPA, but not as much stickiness or bite as I was expecting. Very decent brew by Port.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Beer Heaven in Philly. Hazy rich amber poor supporting a medium thick off white head. Aroma bursts of citrus and pine needles. Explosion of tangerine at first sip with hints of coffee, vanilla and a bit of milk chocolate all reigned in with a healthy malt backbone. Silky mouthfeel with enough carbonation to cleanse the palate leading to a bitter dry finish. Beautifully balanced. A west coast IIPA that defines the style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle, pours clear golden / copper. Aroma is very piney hops, with tropical fruits. Flavour of intense piney, resinous hops, an herbal quality, loads of fruit, balanced just enough with caramel malt. Beautifully crafted IIPA.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Another perfect beer. A hazed apricot color with a tall lasting head and strong aromas of grapefruit rind. Full nectar with excellent carbonation. Full and lush with only mild sweetness. In an attempt to balance the extreme hop profile the malt backbone turns away with a blush and realizes his futility. The finish is bittered and scorned and bittered again. If you let it, Iím sure this beer will eat your face to the cheek bone. I donít even have to Trump this one. The perfect beer and I wanít another one.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hops everywhere. Very cloudy. Looks like a Hefeweizen. Hops dominate the nose and flavor. Very dry. A delicious unfiltered hop bomb.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Only real negative was the lack of a nose. Otherwise a very good beer. Very good amounts of grapefruit, orange and pine. Very attractive looking beer and great head with this. Extremely well hidden ABV.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Bottles on 3/30/2011. Pours a hazy golden amber with a three finger white head that lasts forever and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. A bit of sediment even with a careful pour. The bottom of the bottle has about an inch of sludge. The aroma is big pine hops with some orange and a bit of grapefruit as well. There is also a strong breadiness present. The initial taste is relatively sweet with the pine coming through first. There is a also some citrus as well as the same breadiness present in the nose. A little bit of caramel as well. Finish has a pretty strong bitterness. Medium-full body. Medium carbonation.
