Another awesome beer from Port! Nose is all cannabis-ey, with notes of pine and grapefruit. Flavor is lightly bitter, grassy, floral. Excellent!

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 This is the medicine I recommend for hop heads that have had a recent bitter disappointment in their beer. Wow! If you want a bitter slap in the face. This beer nails it. Massively bitter! Killer! Yeah Baby!

22oz bottle, purchased at Petaluma Market. Pours a deep, slightly hazy, orange-amber color; textured, foamy off-white head with excellent retention and lacing; nice-looking pour. Dense, dank aroma showing plenty of soft-edged orange and lemony hoppiness; nicely forward; a modest sugared sweetness behind things. Medium-full body; medium carbonation; some light, vinous alcohol presence and warmth, but nothing rough; certainly a big beer, but well handled. Huge amounts of orange notes here (seemingly a fair amount of Amarillo, but Iím always hesitant to guess) along with a more assertive lemony citrus bitterness as well (Centennial? - see, I was lying above); some modest fruitiness from the candied malt core and the yeast; balanced overall, with any core sweetness well tempered by the hops and the alcohol. Pleasant to drink, with some tongue-numbing bitterness and lightly prickly alcohol keeping things lively. Long-lasting finish of citrus, oranges, and modest emerging toastiness; reasonably balanced at the far end of things.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a bright orange color with a bright white foamy head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is huge floral, piney, citrus hop notes, dank nugs. Palate stings and leaves the tongue hop blasted, bitterness in the swallow is refreshing and juicy. Flavors of citrus hop notes, fresh grass, juicy mangoes. Total hop bomb.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Pours a cloudy amber with a thick, rocky white head. Orange and grapefruit aroma really jumps out of the glass. The flavor is fairly dry - just a tiny hint of sweetness - but it has a thick, almost creamy mouthfeel and a lingering grapefruit-pith hop bitterness on the finish.

22oz Bottle. Pours copper gold with white head, nicely laced. Nice hop aroma, taste is hop bitter with only a slight sweet at the end. Agree with others itís a little overly bitter. Still a nice brew.

On draft at Caponeís. Pour is a very cloudy red highlighted orange with two big fingers of foamy beige head; the lacing left was amazing and the foam lasted so long I had a permanent beer mustache while drinking it. Nose is citrus, hops, melon, mango, and a bit of pine. Taste is right on par, with a fruity, mellow hop introduction. This fades a touch, then you are smacked with a hop wallop (very bitter) in the finish. This is a very solid DIPA, which I enjoyed very much, but I would have liked it to finish as mellow as the rest of the experience.

Tap at AZSBF.Pour is orange-gold with a white head. Aroma shows notes of mango, apricot, orange, and some floral hops. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of caramel and pine. Overall body is moderate with well balanced bitterness.

650ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a slightly cloudy amber-orange color with a big clumpy white head. The aroma is strong with fresh oranges and grapefruit juice. The flavor, like the aroma, is strong with citrus, resins and a bit of caramel. The palate is full and silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long, dry and biter. Overall: I found the bitterness of this just a bit harsh, otherwise a great DIPA.

Wonderful DIPA. The aroma is all citrus and very prominent hops. The appearance is lighter than I expected, it is a golden color with decent carbonation and white head. The taste is very full of hops and follows the aroma with a citrus taste. It is the first beer that actual seems to have some citrus, mainly grapefruit in it. I enjoyed this beer.
