Taste thanks to Sara!Orange, tea-colored with a thin, bubbly white head. Heavy citrus in grapefruit and lemon, also some soap, brown sugar, and warming alcohol. Flavor has light orange and pale malt sweetness, but the bitterness becomes astringent, particularly in the finish. Too much a story of sweetness and bitterness here, nothing going together and very difficult to enjoy any part of this.

popery (1677) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Draft, City Beer Store. Poured a light gold/amber with an off-white head and good lacing. Aroma was big and hoppy. Hop flavors in order of strength: pine needle, tangerine, mango, pineapple. The flavor was nice and dry. Starts off with some wonderfully smooth, mildly sweet malt, bread/light caramel. Finishes dry and pleasantly bitter. Some hop oiliness in the feel. Pine resin from the hops is the dominant note and the hoppiness is definitely excellent, however I was mostly struck by that smooth malt flavor, giving the hops an excellent platform without being obtrusive. This probably wasn’t my favorite DIPA from Port, but it was different enough from the pack to stand out.

jmm635 (944) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Light amber in color with a slightly orange hue. White head with some sticky lacing. Aroma is very clean, full of citrus hops. A bit more malt flavor when it reaches the tongue, but not too much. Easy to drink at over 8%.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Hazy yellow-orange pour with a lots of bubbles. Mild grapefruit aroma. Herbal with basil notes. Dry citrus hops with grapefruit. Lots of overpowering bitterness to finish. It really lingers on the tongue and was a bit too much for me.
