2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at brewery. Coppery, yellow color with hazy appearance. Pillowy head that quickly dissipates. Classic piney/grapefruit hop aroma. Hits you at the front.top of mouth and the bottom half of the tongue. Larger carbonation. Pretty average IPA.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a growler. Decent aroma. Hops, pine and citrus. Flavor is ok. Not a bad beer. Not very hoppy.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-yellow, not much aroma (though its a bad glass for aroma). Dry grapefruit with a faint orange finish behind the hops. Not bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. Clear orange-copper with a lasting disc of foam. Nose is corn, caramel and menthol. Flavor is orange caramel, toasted corn, hard mint cough drop and earthy leaf. Light-medium body seems like it might appear to have some balance if you did a keg stand and has low-medium carbonation. I may go back to this one in a drunken stupor where I couldn’t recall having it previously. This is a pretty awful IPA by either British or NAFTA standards. As of 4/11/2014 I am unable to finish it, but may let it sour for a week and re-rate.
