Bomber courtesy of FlacoAlto! Thanks!!! Pours a clear copper, with 2 fingers of beige head. Smells of pine, grapefruit, hops, and other citrus flavors. Now this is an IPA, almost borders a DIPA, but wow, very good. Medium mouthfeel, flavors similar to the smells. Great hops, well balanced with a kick! My first Port beer, and i want more! Thanks again!

Bottled. Orange coloured. Unclear. DEnse beige head. PInes, fruits, fllowers and spiece in the aroma. Flavour is citric and herbal. Quite flowery and a bit soapy. Full bodied. Very dry. Has a mighty bitterness in the end. Very good and balanced brew.

22oz bottle. aroma is of hops and candy... the flavor is mostly the 5 hops included in this delightful bottle of beer... citrus and piney hop flavors melt perfectly with the sweet malt... top notch IPA from this above average brewery

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2007
Bottle. A amber beer with a big white head. Malty, floral and hoppy aroma and taste. Medium body with a light sweet, bitter dry finish. A very nise IPA.

JDUB (178) - Venice Beach, California, USA - JAN 26, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 22 oz bottle, Pasadena, CA. Initially really fizzy with bubbles on glass like a cider; this worried me. But it receded quickly leaving a finger or so of white head (with lacing). Hue is brownish orange, cloudy. Other than the initial fizziness it has a very enticing appearance. Aroma is straight-up mango. Flavor was great, picked up a little sweet fruitiness with a great lasting bitter aftertaste; this brew snagged the bitter receptors on the very back of your tongue, by the tonsils - supper good quality in my opinion. Overall, definitely buy it/try it if given the opportunity. (Obviously, at a 97 rating as I write, you would try it)

TheBeerGod (5229) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2007
Bottle. Amber pours with a small fluffy white head. Aroma is big hops! My mouth is watering just smelling this! Lots of pine needles, grapefruit juice and sweet malts. My first sip of this is heavenly. Sweeter than expected, but still relatively bitter. Pine sap, grapefruit pulp, light caramel, maple, sweet malts and orange juice. Body is chewy and slightly sticky. Resinous notes abound in this medium-full palated beer. Light carbonation as well. Finishes with more pine notes, citrus juices and oils, and sweet maltiness. Bit of caramel as well. Very delicious!

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2007 Pours cloudy light brown(tiny bit of orange). Sweet pine and citrus in aroma. Sweet thick hoppy flavor with pretty thick palate. Pretty thick palate. con... very slight metallic aftertaste. Overall pretty good though

22oz - thanks Foolish_Mortal - Aroma of strong herbal floral hops. Fresh sticky hops I expect from a San Diego IPA. Pours gold-brown with cascading bubbles a medium head and great lacing. Flavor has the hops from the aroma with a citrus tang. Nice malty back balances it out perfectly. Palate is tart and creamy, maybe a bit thin. Another bang-on winner of an IPA from Pizza Port.
