OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2005
Couleur orange pale allant vers l’ambrée, apparence plutôt claire et translucide. Faible quantité de mousse blanche concassée. Aromes de citrons, pamplemousse sous une faible touche de caramel. Devenant très houblonné en bouche, pas de solide base de malt pour venir balancer. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, carbonatation bien active. Bien fait quoique semble rapidement unidimensionnelle!

UPDATED: APR 20, 2006 2004 draught at the brewery. Light orange color, moderately hazy with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma has plenty of fresh NW hops in it. Flavor is much the same. While it’s good and drinkable, it’s about the same as every other american india pale ale. Low malting leads to low sweetness. Tons of bitter hops contributing a mild astringency. Whatever, certainly makes for a very uninspired review.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Vermont Brewers’ Fest 2006, draught sample. Dark caramel with faint reddish hint, little head....lightly spicy/fruity nose, citrus and peaches and maybe a hint of cherry, pleasant but unassuming....body is smooth, clean and sweet with a moderate hoppy attack at the finish, medium-bodied and average carbonation....not much to say here, this is not at all bad but just has no panache, rather a weaker offering from this fine brewpub.
Earlier Rating: 5/26/2005 Total Score: 3.3
Sampled at the brewpub in the company of the munificent and mysterious Mr. ClarkVV. Almost clear medium amber with excellent head retention...hoppy-sweet nose isn’t distinctive at all but quite fresh and tingly...quite bitter throughout, grainy and dry...not my favorite kind of IPA, I like more sweetness and body and a bit of pungency typically...but this like all of Portsmouth’s beers is well made without flaws and quite drinkable.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Slightly cloudy amber with a thin soapy head. Rosuing creates a thicker head. Very mild earthy hop aroma, slightly astringent. Taste is kind of soapy, and the hop character is not very robust. Still, a decent IPA.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Very light nose with traces of citrus. Pours golden blonde with a thin white head. Very mild flavor hops of a tropical fruit quality, with a mild bitterness. A decent session beer.

JK (4350) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Light gold color. Hop aroma and hop flavor. Fresh bread, and a little citrus. Medium palate. Drinkable enough, a middle of the road ipa.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2007
Cask@GBBF07. Mainly grass aroma with some fruits. Hazy, orange/amber color, off-white head, fair lace. Sweet, fruity, bitter and grassy. Light sticky and dry. An ok beer.

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2007
Hazy orange with a small white head. Hoppy aroma with pine, grass and earth notes. Bitter with mostly a grassy hop flavour, some alcohol.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Gold. Small white head. Aroma of balanced malt and hops with some dusty yeast. Flavor of fruity, resinous hops, lightly sweet pale malt more than balances, and the same dusty yeast. Medum body, just smoother than balanced. Perhaps their bombers don’t travel well. Still, an okay IPA.

Bottle, thanks to someone. Light orange-amber pour. Aroma is sweet malt, lots of grapefruit, slightly metallic. The mouthfeel is thin. The flavor is grainy malt and mild citrus bitterness, but like a poorly dry-hopped beer.
