Tap at Sunset Grille. Pours a hazy nice bright golden orange with a lingering fluffy white head and good lace. Aroma is grassy citrus, resin and pine- a bit dank, mostly bright straightforward oily citrus and grapefruit- some orange zest. Flavor is sticky tacky resinous oily hops, a bit of crackery and light pale malts- light sticky sweetness from the malt but mostly hop forward- pine light mint, orange grapefruit- not as bright or refined as many of the best DIPA’s but still very fresh and tacky with hops- resinous somewhat harsh bitter finish which was good. Nice.

Served on tap at O’Briens SD. Dark gold pour with off white head. Grapefruit and citrus aromas. Sweet malty flavor with a bitter finish. Excellent DIPA.

Served on tap at Toronados. Pours a slightly cloudy medium gold hue with a nice white head. The hops on this come through with a full bitterness and grapefruit in the front. Part way through the malts come through to round out the beer. Another solid DIPA as you would expect from Port.

On tap, 5th Amendment Alehouse. Pours bright orange, clear in color, with attractive lacing. Aroma is citrus, fresh orange, ruby grapefruit. Flavor holds bright citrus fruit, with assertive bitterness. Very refreshing, even though the body has a fair amount of heft. Another highly successful DIPA by Port.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2010 Re-rate: 3/12 had it again last night on draught at high dive and it was even better.. the way the bitterness mingles with the citrus and the taste lingers just long enough on the palate is quite frankly, beer at its best.. CRISP and undeniably smooth even with the high degree of difficulty.. Without a doubt, my favorite and the best craft of any category Ive had thus far. Original rating: 2/14 thanks to JW32hoops for sharing this little gem.... pours a muddy golden orange.. almost hef but without the playboy mansion... the aroma is abundant, citrus, I sense orange and the slightest bit of grapefruit.. great smell.. the initial hit to the palate is that of organized, subtle hops.. the million dollar word is.. CRISP.. Crisp hops, crisp bite, crisp finish.. the bite is like a nibble but the kind of nibble you hope finds you again and again....as I drink more the hops settle into a uniform of T’s... translucent, transforming, terrific.. great finish.. again, crisp.. the floral hops nibble once more before they bid adeu... great job on this one boys...

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2010 Thanks to BeerNinja for filling my jug at the brewery! 64oz growler poured into a tall glass. Pours a beautiful, cloudy, golden amber, reminiscent of Green Flash...almost hef-like. Nose is floral, hoppy and sweet. Strong aroma, yet it doesn’t bully the nostrils by any means. Hits the palate and immediately you know you’re drinking an IPA...hoppy, bitter, sprucey, piney. Full bodied, but again...not overly aggressive. Very well balanced IPA, especially for an Imperial/Double. Well done to the Port/Lost Abbey guys. This one is a keeper. EDIT: Had this again, on tap at the High Dive on Morena...even better than I remembered it. The legend is growing... MONGOOOOOO!!!!!!

Tap at Lost Abbey’s new revamped tasting room day of the angel’s grand cru release. Pours orange. Big hoppy nose, Taste is a little to much on the resin side for my taste. Its certainly good, but does Lost Abbey really need another DIPA?

On tap at Lost Abbey. Golden amber pour, with a sticky white head. Citrus, bready malt, fresh hops, grapefruit, and hint of lemon. Nice IIPA, typical for pizza port. Tasty.

Thanks to Sideswipe on BA! Beautiful pour, thick and lustrous orange, with enough sediment for grit and character but mostly quite bright. Sizable head, active and prickly carb. The nose is more sharp, citric, and grassy than I’d expected - for some reason I was anticipating a juicyfruit character. But that’s just fine, and it’s something that deepens as you get into this delicious beer. Bright and refreshing but with Sculpin-like subtleties. Rockin’ good brew.

On tap at Bistro DIPA Fest poured a clear golden yellow with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, lemon, earthiness and light grapefruit. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, pine, earthiness and grapefruit with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.
