StoutFest (77) - Stoutville, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Pours a cloudy deep gold with a huge foamy white head. A citrusy and tropical sweet hoppy nose. Resinous juicy mouthfeel with flavors of citrusy hops, tangerine, grapefruit, orange peels, and apricot. Sweet meets bitter in perfect harmony with citrusy and piney hops. Nicely balanced unlike their anniversary DIPAs. A hop lovers dream. Great long lasting hoppy finish. This was really good. I highly recommend this to anyone seeking an agressively balanced intense hop profile.

NachlamSie (2752) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2011
From draft into a chalice at the Trappeze. Here is a serious IIPA and I would expect nothing else from Port brewing. The color is a pleasing bright orange with a thick frothy white head. The aroma is intense with a super powerful, dank, herbal bite. The flavor is huge and insanely bitter and resinous. Loads of citrus and grass make up the hop attack. The body is just about right for this style too. I loved it.

mrmartin (666) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 12, 2011
orangey golden pour big off-white head and lots of carbonation. nose is suprisingly weak. dry, a little grapefruit with sort of earthy malt. light body. earthy and resiny. quick bitter finish. clean tasting, good session but doesnt really excite my senses.

SDalkoholic (2145) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle from Henry’s: Created a thick layer of fluffy foamed head while the liquid was a hazy burnt orange hue. In the nose, the aroma is dominated by a huge presence of freshly picked green hops that smell oily with a scent of citrus juice, peel and the flesh of the fruit. The flavor is just the same with a heavy taste of citrus perhaps ruby grapefruit, orange, and lime peel that make this an interesting imperial IPA. Now when it comes to the finish, this leaves behind a metallic aftertaste that is also intensely bitter and has more citrus zest lingering around.

HonkeyBra (3343) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
22 oz. bomber. Orange amber pour with a creamy eggshell colored head. Big citrus aroma with grapefruit and tangerine peel. Some orange, some caramel, strong pine and resin. Flavor is lots of orange and pine, some lemon. strong bitterness, very nice. Light caramel and biscuit notes but this is all about the hops. Medium bodied, allows the bitternes to really shine through in the finish. Really great DIPA.

OldMrCrow (1810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle as a contest extra (!!) from Stefanje.

Aggressive nose of pine and pineapple. Juicy, but you know you’re in for a hop blast as soon as you taste it. Indeed, from the first sip this is a hard-ass IIPA. Massive pine bitterness, like Port-brews-a-ruinition-style ale, like having grapefruit rind ground against one’s tongue. Lovely foamy head, huge lacing. Easy to drink despite all of the hop intensity. Pretty nice beer even if it lacks the dank herbal hop notes that send me over the top.

bhensonb (10931) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Bomber from Nugget Market in West Sacramento, CA. Raise a glass to the brew cat. Pours moderate amber with a creamy 3 finger beige head that shows signs of ring lacing. Indeed this is appropriate as the aroma is purest cat pee. Full bodied; foamy carbonation. Starts with citrus and pine, shows a decent caramel backbone, and then just sucks all the moisture right out of my mouth. Astringent. Goes very evergreen bitter. These guys nailed another great ale.

changeup45 (1716) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Bomber from Snojerk321. Amber-orange color pouring with a thick of-white head. A thin layer of foam sticks around on top shedding lacing that sticks to the glass like glue. Big citrus and orange peel aroma with caramel, resin, and a dash of lemon following, but the orangey scent is standing out. The flavor is much more resinous than the aroma had me thinking. The citrus is still there but much more complimentary giving way to a rough pine/resin combo. Biscuits and caramel provide a glimpse of sweet malt before being shoved aside by the sharp bitter hops. This is quite bitter, sharp, and assertive, with a lengthy dry bitter finish. Nice beer. A welcomed addition to the Port lineup although I think I still prefer fresh (and properly carbed) Hop 15.

3fourths (7977) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2011
draft. cloudy copper. fine-bubbled off-white head. intensely bright citrus fruit nose - pineapple, gelatinous pear, maybe a bit of maraschino cherry. it’s all fruit and very little pungency/must. bit of a goopy body but that’s expected with double IPA. fresh, buzzing hop bitterness with moderate caramel malt sweetness. decent for the style and that’s saying a lot.

On tap at Capones. Port Brewing has mastered the IPA. Pours an amber orange color with a white foam head. Has an arom of citrus, caramel, and pine. Has a sweet caramel start. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice harsh hop hit. Damn tasty brew. Salud’ to Mongo the Cat.
