This beer rules. On tap at Stone and Lost Abbey. Pours cloudy orange with a medium sized white head that leaves some lace. Smells big and citrusy, lots of bitter hop character as well. Tastes hoppy and citrusy, excellent. Their best IPA in my opinion. Big, citrusy hops with a hint of sweetness and tons of bitterness. Nice. Full body, good carbonation.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2011 Draft at the Taphouse Grill. Hazed orange pour with a lasting white head, leaves some light layers of lacing. Has a beautifully hoppy nectarine, citrus, grass, and floral aroma. The flavor has a bit of a tropical fruit flavor at the start, moves to loads of grapefruit, and finishes with bitter pine. Super easy to drink with very well concealed alcohol.

LtDan (1785) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAR 2, 2010
Appearance: Pours a clear yellow gold with an inch of dense off white head. The head subsides to a mere cap of film. Aroma: Faint citrus. Taste: Bitter pine, honey and orange. Mouthfeel: Thin with modest carbonation. Overall: I am impressed this is off the beaten path of double IPAs for Port, but at the same time, I was looking for that obnoxious hop nose I get from High Tide, Wipe Out, Hop 15, and Anniversary Ale. I didn’t get it, but still enjoyed it.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2010
On tap at Beachwood BBQ: Pours a transparent orange golden with a well-lacing large froth of off-white head. Has a huge fresh dank hoppy nose with some good sweet pale malty backing. Starts with good fullness and finely-dissolved carbonation revealing a nice light malty sweetness with lots of assertive resiny hoppy flavor and bitterness before a fairly crisp, bittersweet finish. A well-balanced and dangerously drinkable double IPA.

Big, bold, delicious. On tap at Brouwer’s, and I’m really glad I got to try this one. Hugely hoppy - clean citrus hop aroma, and it tastes really fresh. Thick, resinous mouthfeel, with mandarin, grapefruit, and some buttery caramel to counter. Really nice - beats both their anniversary brews, in my mind.

On tap at Stone Bistro. Outstanding Doublie IPA. Loved the citrus, bitter hops. Went well with the clams and the spice sausauge appetizers we had.

ChazMania (652) - Pasadena, California, USA - FEB 27, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2011 Pint from the Port Brewing site, decent aroma although light; dark yellow to soft orange, taste was kind of sweet but not overtly; a bit of peach and apricot; easy to drink; would like to drink again to see how it stands. Originally had this at 3.8: As of 3/2/11 I’m bumping it up to a 4.2. This is from the first bottling batch and it tastes, looks and smells outstanding. I’ve had some recent bad experience with Port beer so this is redemptive for my palate.

On tap@Oggi’s Carmel Mountian Ranch: Hazy pale peach color with a small white head. Aroma is mostly citrus with a hint of pine. Flavor starts citrusy with orange and lemon followed by lots of grapefruit with dry bitter finish. Medium body is spicey with moderate carbonation. Alcohol very well hidden.

Nice big citrusy aroma. Pours dark orange. This eally hits you at first with red grapefruit. Then the bitterness kicks in and holds on and the citrus becomes less distinct as you drink it. Good but could maybe be dialed back a skosh to allow the bitterness to fade out.
