On tap at Capones. Nice bright cloudy yellow with thin head. Typical clean crisp IPA flavor. Enjoyable but not a stand out for me.

patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 Draft at Teresa’s with James. Pours a light hazy orange with a modest, lacy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, nectar, peach, apricot, pear, and hops. Medium bodied with a juicy, well-balanced mouthfeel. Finishes with a bitter kick on the back of the tongue. Awesome Imperial IPA from Port Brewing. Bottle. Multiple times, but this re-rate is dated March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day, 2012. Pours an electric, glowing orange with an initially fat white, frothy head which slowly fades, leaving a small puff atop the brew. Aroma is fresh lemon peel, subtle mango, funky floral hops, some soft malty. bready sweetness and very soft notes of yeast in the backgroud. Flavor is fresh all around; oranges, grapes, and slight pineapple. Really great IPA.

Draft. Orange pour with white head. Citrus, pine resins, tropical fruit notes. Grapefruit, pine and citrus flavors, very well done.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2011 Draft at Teresa’s with Patrick. Pours a light golden body with slight haze. Aroma is grapefruit. Mouthfeel is nice, medium feeling, with notes of grapefruit, apricot, peaches, and fresh hop...finishes bitter on the back of the tongue. Delicious.

On draft at Teresa’s. Poured hazy orange with solid white lacing. Floral nose. Crisp citrus fruits dominate the flavor profile. Grapefruit, tangerine, and peach present. Medium bodied. Sessionable and I love it. Port Brewing gets it done again.

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Served (@TJ’s) in a snifter. Pour revealed a orange/lemon color with a smallish white head. There was a sticky lacing all the way through. While there was some pine, the nose is a VERY strong punch of piney hops and citrus - oranges, lemons, mango, apricot and grapefruit. As is often the case, this was served too cold and I had to let it sit. The taste is a hop explosion with the citrus that was so strong in the nose taking a backseat. There is some honey/mango/malt sweetness but, even as it warmed, it wasn’t quite able to overcome the dry, hops. Mouthfeel is light to medium and sticky. Carbonation is good. I didn’t notice any warming - no hints of the 8.5%. This is quite refreshing, although I wouldn’t call it balanced. Doubt I could drink a lot of this a one sitting but, all-in-all, it’s a very good West Coast style IPA.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Light gold pour reminiscent of old time Dreadnaught IPA. Aroma of sweet malts and grapefruit. Initial taste is hop bite followed by medium malt and then huge hop flavor heavy on the citrus skin and grapefruit. A really awesome double ipa.

nimbleprop (5786) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2010
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.

Slipstream (2214) - USA - MAY 12, 2010
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.
