Slightly hazy dark golden with a thick foamy white head. Big delightfully floral nose with potpourri and lilac and geranium and grapefruit peel and lime and a touch of pine. Super complex nose. Taste is splendid as well with sweet floral hops, a kiss of pine, some lemongrass, and some gentle blonde caramel undertones providing a solid base. Lots of fresh cut floral/potpourri hoppiness, but with a manageable bitterness. Just wonderful.

L_inconnu (58) - SWITZERLAND - APR 19, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2014 Un produit magnifique : une belle couleur citronnée et une mousse bien travaillée, ni trop ni pas assez dense. D’un point de vue nez, on sent la touche californienne : une cascade citronnée qui part vers d’autres agrumes, mais plus discrètes (orange et grapefruit pour citer les plus évidents). Une fois en bouche, il faut bien reconnaître que ce produit est parfaitement maîtrisé : une grosse baffe citronnée accompagnée d’une carbonation bien présente (petites bulles, très agréable) qui arrivent au résultat escompté : une sensation de fraîcheur extrêmement agréable et bien dosée. A déguster de préférence par temps chaud et sec de préférence

Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: Manzanita pint glass From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $4.23 (w/ VONS card) (also 20 percent off) Purchased: April 10, 2014 Consumed: April 17, 2014 Misc.: Bottled Jan. 31, 2014; Have had this so many times but only recently realized that I’ve never rated it Poured a caramel, amber, semi-clear color with two fingers of pillowy off-white head. A nice line of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Tons of layered foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Thick coating of lacing on the top. Smelled pine, soapy notes, grapefruit, wet cascade hops, lime, citrus hops, floral hops and lemon zest. Just lovely. Tasted pretty close to the nose, although not as much grapefruit as I remember. Got floral hops, citrus hops, pine, soap, cascade hops, grapefruit, lime, lemon and caramel. Light-to-medium body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. Just a very good IPA. No surprises from my past times having it. Definitely one of my go-to IPA’s.

Understated on the bitterness, lovely sweetness, great balance of florals. Cloudy hazy golden pour with a big head! This is a quiet achiever beer doing it’s thing well, and I’m enjoying it.

tomekk1978 (418) - POLAND - APR 10, 2014
Barwa: bursztynowa, wyraźnie mętna. Piana biała obfita,drobno pęcherzykowa. Utrzymująca się i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: praktycznie wyłącznie chmielowy: kwiaty, pomarańcze, cytryny, grejpfrut, mandarynka. Wyraźna nuta alkoholowa. Mimo tego kuszący. Smak: pełny słodowy, nieco słodki, z wyraźną chmielową kontrą. Goryczka powyżej średniej. Wyraźnie owocowa (grejpfrut, mandarynka), przyjemna, z alkoholową końcówką. Kolejna IPA z Port Brewing wypada zdecydowanie korzystniej. Barwa jest ciemniejsza niż w przypadku High Tide, piana ładniejsza i bardziej trwała. Aromat od początku mega owocowy i intensywny. Smak także niczego sobie. Konkretna IPA, nieco idąca w stronę imperiala, ale to mi akurat pasuje. Nic tylko polecić.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
Pretty good WCIPA, the typical straw yellow appearance, aroma a bit dim, possibly due to import; grass and citrus. Lots of bitterness.

jjgmd (1365) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bomber, with who else but Z. Pours a rustic burnt orange color with a short white head. Nose is pine and resin, with some citrus, but not deeply citrus rooted. Taste is very bitter with pungent resin and pine notes, with some light citrus notes. Finish is bitter, and moderately long. Nice bitter IPA ! Will make you hoppy. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours orange with a white head and aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is bitter sweet, nice hops, grass, grapefruit, and pine notes leading to a bitter, dry finish. Very drinkable, nice IPA
