22oz bottel as well as on tap at Pizza Port in Carlsbad. Excellent IPA, hazy color probably due to all the yeasties. Bitter, excellent aroma.

22 oz. Botttle. This beer pours a slightly murky orange with a striking white thick head and sticky lacing. The aroma is filled with pine, citrus, earth, and a sweet and fruity malt notes. The flavor is has a huge hop flavor and bite. Then the malt comes to the rescue with some balance making this beer very drinkable. A well made beer is what it is.

Bottle courtesy of bonus from King G. Great beer. Another IPA that felt more like a IIPA. Great balance of malt and hops. Love the west coast hops!

22 oz bottle from after4ever. Pour is a cloudy yellow, visible carbonation and big, fluffy, white head. Aroma is citrus hop, floral and a presence of biscuity malt. Aroma is mostly the hop, though. Taste is grapefruit tart citrus hop to start, nice balanced malt middle and a fairly long, resiny finish. Nice hop bitterness throughout. Palate is a touch watery, though this did add to its drinkability. Nice everyday IPA, for those with access to this everyday. Thanks for this one, Tom!

Huge ivory rocky head over a hazy golden beer with a fresh citrus hop nose. Lots of pine, orange rind and grapefruit with a caramel sweetness. A little too much water, but still a nice hop head beer.

Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2007
I just love Port’s IPA’s! They always tend to have a house hop profile and yeast character that I really find enjoyable. Nice puffy head with whisps of peaks like egg whites. Nice aromatic quality with notes of the typical citrus, pine and a bit of cattiness. Soft, creamy mouthfeel with some good malt complexity. Good caramel character that lends a bit of balance with the bitterness of the hops. Slight resin quality on the tail end, but still overall very enjoyable.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2007
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark gold. Nice, medium sized white, bubbly head. Earthy, piney aroma aroma. Perfect mix of floral hops in the mouthfeel. Finishes clean, with a hint of bitterness. Wonderful beer for a hot summer day.

Bottle. Nice strong, hoppy IPA. Full aroma of earthy, citric, piney hops, and floral notes. Palate is bitter and hoppy, lots of hops, quite floral and grapefruity with notes of pine and lychee coming through aswell. Nice long finish, Fresh and floral.

On tap @ City Beer Store, SF. White head with tight texture, nice amber/copper hue. Hoppy nose, great citrus and hop flavor with a clean bitter finish. Will definitely have again.
