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.

Fruity hoppy aroma. Heavy heavy ipa. Big hops really bitter. If you want a face slappin ipa this is it. At 8.5% its one to drink a small glass of. Really good.

On tap. Clear yellow orange with small white head. Aroma fresh citrus and floral hops. Medium body with light carbonation and touch of alcohol. Strong citrus and tropical flavors with some spice and malt balance but mostly hoppy and bitter, quite nice.

Pours crystal clear straw with a lovely white head which billows and looks almost marshmallow like in it’s volume and density. Aroms is nice resiny hops which grassy, summer notes which invite you to drink this on a very hot day (as per the label). Unfortunately I can only assume this was on old bottle as the hop flavours promised in the aroma were not present and as this is not a particularly malty IIPA (I find the malty ones tend to retain their hoppiness better) it was just like a normal IPA with a few aspirins dissolved in. Over active carbonation and the flavour just wasn’t there. Knowing Port Brewing’s commitment to IPAs this must have been an old bottle and I for one am very disappointed but will try again when I can be guaranteed freshness.

Straight forward overwhelming bitterness with notes of resin and grapefruit peel. Body is medium thick with medium carbonation. Good head. I drunk the hole thing with pleasure but it wasn’t about sublimity or compromise at all. Which is good.

Présence massive de houblon et un peu violente. Piquante, amère, massive dès l’attaque. Texture assez épaisse et alcool marqué. On est bien dans la double IPA / Imperial IPA ... Avec plus de fruité en bouche cela aurait pu être impeccable et avec plus de "complexité", parfait !
