3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2012 draft at Lost Abbey. clear amber body with a small white head. hop cone acids and must in the nose with clean malt, mostly resembling baked crackers with a touch of amber. medium-high bitterness, almost astringent on the tongue. medium-high acid. rough carbonation. finished a bit wet / moldy / dank. decent rendition but I’d like to see the body and carbonation without such an edge.

On tap@ Noble Fir. Pours thin slightly cloudy pale straw yellow with head that thins out quickly. Aroma is punchy tart hops. Taste is big grapefruit and pine hops that last throughout. Not really any malt to speak of... and I don’t mind. Delicious, simple, sessionable.

A refreshing hop-forward pale ale, very light on the malt, a bit watery but a great session pale ale.

Clear golden color/ lasting ivory head. Fucking awesome aromas of spicy, tropical fruit hops with honey biscuit. Medium bodied with soft co2. Great balance of west coast ipa hop flavors on a solid pale malt base brew

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The beer pours a clear orange-amber color with a finger of white head and some sticky lacing.
S: A very nice hoppy nose full of of citrus, pine, and floral hop aromas. Just a mild grass note but otherwise it’s just tons of grapefruit and other citrus peel. What one might call dank.
T: There is just a mild sweetness of malt and otherwise it’s all grapefruit and orange with more subdued notes of pine and grass. A light bitterness with some floral notes to go along with it.
M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Really a solid hoppy beer, which is something I always expect from Port.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy peach body with a fluffy, creamy white head. Lovely, leafy and floral hoppiness with some specks of soap yeast of the periphery. Honeysuckle and floral hop flavors entwined with pleasant, crisp bitterness to tie it into a delcious boquent. Mellifluous underpinning does not at all mute the hoppiness, but rather acts as a harmonic accompaniment.
