4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The murky amber pour was topped with a huge head, and as it rose up rapidly, I ended up spilling this a bit. The head stayed around for a while, looking like beige whipped cream topping the liquid. The smell was quite hoppy, despite being masked by the foam. There were aromas of grapefruit, pine, and hay with every sniff. The taste was very much in line with the West Coast roots of the beer. It was bitter from the start, with a grapefruit pith backbone. There were also notes of pine tar, tangerine, and a hint of pepper. This was a hop-head’s wet dream realized. The finish was mineral laden and drying. The aftertaste lingered on for quite a long time after each sip. The body felt light and lacked the stickiness found in many other DIPAs. If you are craving some piney hops, this is the beer to get.

Bottled 650ml. -at Svijet Piva Zagreb. Unclear golden coloured, medium sized white to off-white head, grapefruity nose. Sweet malty, quite strong fruity hoppy, noticable alcohol and dry rather bitter hoppy finish. Really pleasant brew.

Draft. Aroma of floral hops. Flavor is trip hop, mostly mango and guava, but its not close to being too sweet. Some gentle bittering at the end brings it into balance (maybe with help for some wispy caramel malts?) A stunner.

Murky orange pour with a healthy white head....lots of lacing. Grassy aroma. Citrusy front end with a healthy hop bitterness in the aftertaste. This was very good. Have liked everything I’ve sampled from Port

12.3.2014. Aroma has grass, exotic fruits, esp mango and pineapple. Taste follows decently. Earthy, grassy hop profile, sweetness and dryness in good balance. Still more like dry.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
A nice place for tasting at this bocktown monaca, continuously rotating taps. Smells and looks like heavy IPA. Wew, unique odd dull nose. Used leather and stuff there. Yes, not sure what to think. Is it trying to be like a what? Weird breakfast sugar crisp cereal. Go figger. Another beer from the big brave state of CA. Not impressed and this style never was.
