3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is amarillo with a hint at the belgian esters, flavor is mostly all sticky amarillo citrus hop flavors balanced with some residual malt sweetness and belgian yeast flavors, the beer is really heavy, I think that must be coming from the residuals... beautiful beer though, it was my favorite beer of the day at the carlsbad location
"A nice, assertively hopped india pale ale. Hoppier but lighter than some ipas :) Skunky hops and orange peel, decent balance. Bright. Good call w/pizza or as a refreshing standalone beer." Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate golden color with a nice white head and some fairly stick lacing. The nose brings together some really nice hops along with a good dose of yeast. Slightly spicy. The taste is hoppy with slight floral characteristics and some earthy yeast. Feel is really nice with bitter and spice combining. Very nice all around and it really seems like Port can do no wrong.
Serving type: on-tap

Light golden ale aroma. Pours yellow in color. Candi-sugar sweet flavors. daleharshman (1065) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 13, 2010
Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad, poured into a tulip. Pours an orange-amber color with small white head. Nice aroma of Belgian yeast with lighter notes of American hops. Taste is bitter up front (more like an IPA) with flavors of grapefruit, tangerine, and pine. There is a little big of Belgian yeast flavor later, but this definitely leans more toward IPA in taste (though the nose gives the impression it will have significant Belgian character). Dry and lightly bitter finish. (34, 378) padrefan98 (854) - (San Diego) Santee, California, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Served in a tulip glass at PP Carlsbad. Love this style of IPA although it reminded me of a triple. Dough bread notes, yeast, hops. Good stuff. Finish was a bit strong.

On tap at PP Carlsbad: Pours a slightly hazy golden with a stringy-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of fresh floral grassy resiny hops with some sweet biscuity maltiness. Starts with good fullness and sweet light malts with some fresh floral hop flavor and bitterness before a crisp slightly warming bittersweet finish. Pretty true to style, but could hide its alcohol better. yespr (45710) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2010
From tap at Carlsbad. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild estery and fruity. Mild fruity and estery flavoured. Dry and phenolic to estery dry finish. Smooth and fruity finish. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2010
GABF 09- one of the few somewhat letdowns from PP. Pours a slightly hazed light orange- golden with a tacky white head. Aroma is grassy hops, herbal, catty and light tropical- very light crackery malt. Flavor is toasted and cracker malts, grass mint, pine, sap, and catty hops- a bit soapy and not as intense as some of their other IPAs. Still good- I liked it, but not as great compared to their other IPAs. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2010
(Draught) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of grass, manure, herbal, grapefruit, apricot, and some florals. Flavor of hops (grass, herbal, citrus) and Belgian yeast.
