g_georgiou (522) - CYPRUS - OCT 31, 2015
Hazy orange body with a medium white head. Aroma is strong grapefruit. So strong that almost instantly a fruit fly fell in my glass. Caramel, malt, hops. Taste is sweet and heavy bitter. Oily texture, soft carbonation, warm alcohol finish.

Pours cloudy orange with ample white head. Amazing smell of grapefruit and light citrus, very inviting. Huge juicy hop flavors of citrus, pine, and some caramel malt. Dry finish with long-lasting bitter pine taste. Excellent IIPA.

ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2015 65cl bottle served in a shaker. Deep orange/amber colour with a pillowy white head which lasts throughout and some good lacing. Aroma upfront is juicy and oily hops - orange, pineapple, grassy which considering the density of the head and shape of the glass is very pronounced. Mouthfeel is medium to thick (for its style) and sticks your lips together with the honey sweet maltiness which then turns to the hops which assault your tastebuds in a good way. I would guess at the IBU being in excess of 120 here. If it wasnt for the ABV this would be quite an easy drink to consume a lot of. It needs to be treated with respect at 11% and such a large bottle. A worthy addition to the Port brewing lineup.

TET (2793) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2015 650 mL bottle, 11.0%. An orange beer, a head is big and blond. Aroma is great with lots of tropical fruits, mangos, pineapples, some pine needles, also marshmellows, caramel malts in the background. Taste has caramel maltyness, fruit candies, tropical fruits and lots of pine needles. Strong bitterness is balancing the strong maltyness. The bitterness and hint of alcohol is noticed in the throat. Full bodied, not sticky. The great beer, strong maltyness and strong bitterness but balanced.

Totalnie ekstremalna IIPA, z mocarnym żywiczno-cytrusowym aromatem, totalną pełnią smaku, totalną goryczką i totalną owocowością. Totalny jest też poziom alkoholu, tak jak i totalne jest jego idealne ukrycie. Totalne piwo.
