3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Sunset Grill Allston. Pours a hazy, orange amber with a frothy, lacing white head. The aroma is big on citrus fruits, grapefruit, flowers. Flavor has orange rind, grapefruit, zesty with a sweetness from the malt that mellows things out just a touch. Medium bodied. Well rounded.

On tap at Capone’s, where they served it too cold. There is a touch of mango in this rich, hoppy brew, and lots of fresh, bitter tingle on the palate. Another very enjoyable IPA from the Port Brewing line-up.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap numerous times at both O’Briens in San Diego and the Pizza Port locations in North County. LIghter-colored double IPA, pale golden color with good carbonation and sticky white lacing. Fresh, crisp aroma of grapefruit and stanky hop nuggets. Quite floral. Hop profile is reminiscent of a Pliny clone. Mild malt sweetness. Plenty of citrus mixed in. Ends with crisp notes of pine needle. A bit thin on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Naja’s Place. Pours clear golden with a smallish white head that fell away quick but left a nice ring and lace around the rim of my glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and fresh pine. Flavor is huge citrus, grapefruit and pine, finishes off very bitter with a touch of pepper. Over all I felt this one was not one of Port’s better offerings, over powering in your face hops that were not balanced with a malty backbone.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lightly hazy goldenrod color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, tangerine, buttercream, and toasted malts. Taste of citrus fruits, pine, grass, sweeter honey, and a bitter, hoppy finish with light alcohol as well.

Had this on tap, and it was one of the best double IPAs I’ve had yet. Major grapefruit citrus taste. I could barely taste the Mikeller Tomahawk I ordered after this due to the blitz of hops. If you see this one on tap, and you love IPAs, you owe it to yourself to order this!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap At Brewforia’s new location opening day. A rather pale hazy golden color with a nice off white head. Lots of bitter citrus aroma. Flavor is a bit papery and a little soapy and perfumish, but lots of hop bitterness. Definately a DIPA bitterness and well attenuated, but only moderate fresh hop flavor. Fairly light pallate and crisp carbonation. Quite bitter and harsh trailer. A decent Double.

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of hops, pine, evergreen hop oil, slight tropical fruit, grass, pot, and a hint of grapefruit. Poured amber/orange in color with a small, white head that lasted throughout. Hazy. Slightly to lightly sparkling. Flavor is heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, light tropical fruit, grass, resin, and hop oil. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average to lively carbonation. Bitter. hop, pine, resin, and evergreen finish is dry. 8%ABV is completely hidden. A nice IIPA.
