bottle at Port Brewing tasting at the Brickskeller. cloudy dark amber. aroma is full-on hops: pine/citrus are evident. flavor does not disappoint: herbal, earthy hops in the flavor, and a spike of pine and citrus on the finish. just plain great.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 Hazy, pale body with a medium-sized off-white head. Very nice hoppy nose with grapefruit, floral, tangerine and light bread. The flavor is slightly sweet, grapefruit, light caramel and clean yeast. Medium body is round with soft carbonation.

pantanap (3353) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2007
bomber appearance: minimally transparent orange with a fluffy, tantalizing ivory head...aroma: citrus, fruity hop nose with a slight sweetness coming through from the malt......taste: very characteristic of the nose. very good dose of citrus hops that eventually opens up to some caramel malt. finish lends itself to a touch of a piney bitterness....tasty

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 (re-rate: cask at Ritual) even better on cask - rich mouthfeel on top of the flavors as mentioned; the only downside is that I didn’t want to sample any of the other beers (tasting at Brickskeller) amber with small light tan head. Lovely floral hops aroma. Flavor was citrus and floral hops. Just enough malt to carry the hops.

Ok, I don’t like IPA’s. This one had a great sweet hoppy aroma that promised a pleasant experience. The taste though was definitely a strong blend of hops with the cascade hops coming forward quite intensely. At the end of the day I liked it but it was just too darn hoppy for me.

Boutip (4699) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Bu11zeye: Poured an hazy brown color ale with a big foamy head with better then average retention. Aroma of deep citrus hops with some piney notes. Taste is also dominated by huge citrusy hops with some great caramel malt to back-up the whole thing together. Body is above average with some medium filtration and some adequate carbonation. Overall, a good west coast interpretation of the style but nothing earth shattering either.

ChainGangGuy (4364) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Appearance: Pours a clear, light copper body with a white head. Smell: A bit of understated aroma of caramel and pine. Taste: Toasted caramel with resinous pine and plenty of bitterness and acidity along the way. That’s about I’m getting oughta this one. Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Moderately carbonated. Drinkability: Just another in a long line of IPAs.
