after4ever (6925) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Draft at NCBC. Pours a cloudy burnished medium amber with a loose white head and plenty of stringy lace. Big buttery nose, just shot through with movie popcorn, alas. This beer must be a lot better closer to the source. Creamy medium body with soft carb and a slick, slippery quality. Toast, caramel, and butter on the mid palate. Really had high hopes for this one, too. Clearly a nice hop bill showing in the background. Have to come back and re-rate.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle:   Dirty orange, lots of floaties, somehow with a bright hue, moderate to large foamy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Soft citrusy like hop to the nose.   Minor sweetness.   Very smooth and citrusy on the tongue, moderate hops and bitterness.   Surprised by this one, clean, nice balance of hops with the mildly sweet maltiness.   This one is a pleasure to drink.   Did I mention smooth?   This one seems like a solid example to me, not a hop bomb that one typically finds in California with no body to it, and not a malt bomb that is just extremely bready without much hop attitude.   This one has great balance, its clean, crisp, hoppy and sweet, with a lingering candied citrus peel flavor profile.   Moderate to full in both body and mouthfeel.   Finish is slightly oily.   WOW, real impressed with this one!   A local favorite for sure!   Nice work PT!

JohnnyJ (5078) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 3, 2015
On draft at the brewery. Cloudy orange pour, with an off white head. Citrusy hops, bready, pine resin, sugary, caramel background malt, and notes of buttered popcorn.

Zeswaft (1505) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Exceptional. Murky copper color and thin silky white head. Aroma is an abundance of tropical citrus. Pineapple and grapefruit. Body is creamy and smooth with modest carbonation. Flavor is almost candy fruit sweetness. Pineapple, grapefruit, mango, pine and butter toffee. No discernible alcohol. Damn fine.

mcberko (10569) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2012
On tap at Bottleworks, pours a cloudy orangey amber with a medium white head. Aroma of shitloads of resinous hops, plenty of tropical fruits (mango, pineapple), and a whopping caramel malt backbone. Flavour reveals insane amounts of bitter resinous hops, lots of bitter zesty grapefruit peel, and more dry hops. Coats the palate with dry –hoppy goodness. A most excellent harsh, palate-scorching IIPA.

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - NOV 4, 2012
Deep ruddy gold, fabulous sea-foam head, with awesome ’ice-cream’ lacing. Looks gorgeous in the tulip. The nose is a stiff-arm of bold citrus, super-fresh piney hop oils, and nicely toasted biscuit malt. The citrus profile leans more toward orange and tangerine instead of grapefruit (good dose of amarillo in there?). Lightly sweet, medium creamy body, solid carb, with a great shock of drying bitterness. The robust, Lynch-like, malt backbone holds everything together wonderfully. It really pops mid-palate, muscles its way through, and carries the assertive hopping toward a beautifully bitter finish. This one really surprised me, and fit my mood/taste perfectly at the time. That is what it is all about. Easily my favorite beer from Port Townsend Brewing to date. I would love to see this one made again. Good job, guys! Go Hawks!
