With 78 IBUs. Our version of a West Coast IPA- brewed in the San Diego style. This massively hoppy beer gets its flavor and attitude from no less than five hop varieties including Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Summit.

Off-white fluffy head. Clear copper body. Nice Simcoe-like hop aroma with good amounts of citrus and pine and sweetened black pepper. Flavor is a bit sweeter, but nice nonetheless. Start with basic sweet caramelly malt, then dries out a little bit more with hop resins. Some dull grasses too. Pretty good overall, perhaps would get better if it was fresher.

Bomber at Zeno’s, Penn State. Poured hazy orange with chunks of white head that left splotchy lacing. Piney, citrus flavor. Very bitter finish. A rare treat for the east coast.

Bottle. Sampled at Tria Fermentation School Lost Abbey class 4/16/07. Amber color with a moderately large white head. Aroma is all hops, with a bit of grapefruit. Hop resins coat the mouth and stick around for a long, hoppy finish.

kyzr (1154) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - APR 15, 2007
Thanks to realale420. Gold in color with HUGE head. Big pine and citrus nose. Flavor to match with a nice balance with the malt, yet the hops stand out. Great mouth feel with a medium body. Great hoppy clean finish.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 15, 2007
Floral and piney nose that leads into a wonderful palate of building lingering hop oils. Peppery and herbal on the palate with little residual sugar. Very nice lingering hop finish.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2007
Pours a cloudy orange with a well retained fluffy off white head. Pretty hoppy with a bunch of citrus mixed in. Makes a nice combo. Mostly orange. Taste is quite bitter up front, mellows out towards the finish. Very piney but traces of malts are definitely noticeable. A little caramel and some cinnamon come in the background. Really refreshing, and balanced quite well. Good IPA.

Amber/gold, large fluffy white head. Nose is a huge piney citrus hit. Caramel, slight salt. Flavor is hop, caramel, malt. Bitter rind finish that slowly becomes caramel.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2008 sampled on tap at the 5th Boulder Strong Ale Fest. i’m going to call Port out for putting this up at a fest of 8%+ beers because i always believed this was not that high in abv....pours cloudy orange with white head. very piney hop nose. flavor is extremely crisp, peppery, and piney hops. tasty. 7/4/7/4/15= 3.7

May 25, 2007, 22oz bottle. pours dense golden with fluffy white head. nose is sorta fruity hop aroma but not much. flavor is refreshing, fruity grapefruit hops with caramel malts, tasty. perhaps not that fresh of a bottle. smooth finish. 7/4/7/4/14=3.6.
