4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy, straw color with a just off-white head. Big citrus hop aroma; oranges, grapefruit and lemon. Slight caramel malt aromas as well. There’s a sweet maltiness that hits at first sip but the overwhelming bitterness overtakes it almost instantly. Tons of grapefruit. Lingering bitter finish. I’d say this beer is a classic west-coast IPA.

A bit disappointing. On tap at Half Moon Bay. A very cloudy gold color. Taste has some grapefruit and his, but is really a little boring. Not as much to it as expected. Just ok

Pours a solid amber. Solid clumps of lacing. Aroma is the cleanest citrus you can fathom. Notes of biscuit, malty caramel, pineapples (aka tropical), but also more malt. Soft/medium carbonation and full body. YES! YUM! Seriously, this is damn good brew.

Pours cloudy gold. Nice off white head. Okay lacing. Aroma of mango, trop fruit, pine and citrus. Pretty typical West Coast IPA. Citrus and medium pine rule the taste. Light malts, very smooth medium oily mouthfeel. Could’ve used a little more pine...then it would be the PERFECT West Coast. Two thumbs up to Port!

Thanks Glava, Renato & co! Poured a yellow-golden body with an off white head. Vaguely tropical, ?dank?, sweetish aroma, full and nice. Huge hop taste, tropical fruit et al., very fine bitterness to boot. Not in its prime but definitely bears some markings of a classic.

0.65 bottle@Svijet piva, Zagreb. Shared with Niko. Hazy orange, very strong white head. Flowery aroma, different hops involved. Taste is honey, orange and something I can’t read from my notes... Medium body, drinkable. Very nice looking IPA and almost as tasty.

Perfect West Coast IPA. All the citrus and mango pine and grass aroma and flavors needed or even wished for. Mild malts help hop flavors dominate this beer.
