On tap at Toronado, San Diego.
Aroma: Slightly bready, caramel malt, piney hops.
Appearance: Slightly cloudy coppery pour, excellent, light white head with great lacing.
Taste: Caramel malt backbone balanced against a delicately hoppy finish. Piney without being resiny, hints of grapefruit. Well balanced.
Palate: Nicely carbonated, medium nouthfeel.
Overall: Very drinkable. Great fresh hop flavor without being monstrously bitter. Excellent. kbutler1 (1381) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 6, 2011
Draft. Poured at Toronado San Diego into a pint glass a orange ambe color with a fluffy white head. Nice lace. Danky, piney aroma of hops in the nose. Sweet start gives way to building hoppy bitterness. Nice medium mouthfeel. Decenlty solid wet hop. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 30, 2010
A: The pour is a clear, golden orange color with a dense white head and some sticky lacing.
S: Wow, lots of citrus aromas to this one. Tons of grapefruit along with pineapple and bitter pine hops. Really no malt whatsoever.
T: A nice bitter bite of pine and grapefruit peel. Great grapefruit and pineapple flavors are present as well and provide a well rounded and dominating hoppiness.
M: The body is medium with a fairly high level of carbonation and a nice crisp finish.
D: This beer was just fantastic. So easy to drink and wonderfully done hopping. I had no problem drinking my glass of this. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 21, 2010

On tap at Pizza Port San Clemente’s Hoptoberfest. Pours with a huge white head and a deep golden body. Great lace. Aroma of tropical fruits, herbal, dank, spicy, grassy hops.

Tap at PP Carlsbad. So of all the Port family’s wet hopped IPAs, this one actually attempts balance and has a good malt base. The pour is darker- more amber to almost red versus yellow to gold. Lacing is great. Body is spicy, bitter, nice caramel to balance. Bitterness is powerful but not soapy or astringent. High carbonation. Palate is dry.

Clear amber with a medium beige head. Hoppy aroma with malt, pine and grapefruits. Hoppy flavour with grapefruits, pine and lemons. Finished bitter and dry. Not bad. Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2010
Hazy red amber with a lasting and creamy off-white head. Juicy fruit aroma, with biscuit malt, and a bit of grass. Sweet biscuit malty flavour with citrus and greaan tobacco notes. A bit rough in the bitterness. Ungstrup (37607) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2010
Draft. A dark golden beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma has notes of malt, hops, and peaches. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, peaches, and malt, leading to a very bitter finish - too bitter compared to the flavor for my liking.
