3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid IPA for those who like a less bitter, hoppy IPA. Has a nice floral/herby thing going on that makes it quite different from the very hoppy IPA’s like Victory’s Hop Wallop and Hop Devil. I think this is perhaps Port City’s best to date.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In a 12oz bottle. Aroma of soap. Seems under hopped with lots of bread and a bit of toffee. Finishes kind of sweet, for some reason. Underwhelming.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pour. Semi-opaque amber body with tan head. Sweet, yeast driven nose of dough and bubblegum, offset with some citrus and orange. Taste also punches in the sweet class. Mild earthy hops and some tea flavors too. Light bodied and thin. Not what I look for in an IPA, but not horrible.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
A very sweet ipa. There is a little bitterness towards the end, but the hop flavors wind up indistinct or lost. Mediocre.

From a growler. Decent aroma. Hops, pine and citrus. Flavor is ok. Not a bad beer. Not very hoppy.

Poured at brewery a clear amber with small white head. Aroma was citrus, floral. Lighter not overbearing. Slick in the mouth a little oil. Taste was same as aroma with some pine resin esp in finish. Nicely done.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(US 2012 backlogged in abstinentia) Draft pint @Flying Fish Restaurant, Alexandria VA 11/09/2012. Light-bodied sweetish amber ale speckled with some extra hops with a lemon tea granulate feel to them. Tired finish. Not an ideal fish accompanier.
