Tap @ Falling Rock. Pours dark golden with a white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, orangepeel. Taste is bitter orangepeel, pine, resin, melon, mongo, lots of fruity hops, very nice. Medium body and corbonation, long bitter finish. Very nice hoppy and bitter IIPA, but still very drinkable. 040311 SSSteve (4006) - - MAR 4, 2011

Another awesome beer from Port! Nose is all cannabis-ey, with notes of pine and grapefruit. Flavor is lightly bitter, grassy, floral. Excellent! mrhoppy (1196) - Santa Clara, California, USA - MAR 2, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 This is the medicine I recommend for hop heads that have had a recent bitter disappointment in their beer. Wow! If you want a bitter slap in the face. This beer nails it. Massively bitter! Killer! Yeah Baby! kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAR 2, 2011
22oz bottle, purchased at Petaluma Market. Pours a deep, slightly hazy, orange-amber color; textured, foamy off-white head with excellent retention and lacing; nice-looking pour. Dense, dank aroma showing plenty of soft-edged orange and lemony hoppiness; nicely forward; a modest sugared sweetness behind things. Medium-full body; medium carbonation; some light, vinous alcohol presence and warmth, but nothing rough; certainly a big beer, but well handled. Huge amounts of orange notes here (seemingly a fair amount of Amarillo, but I’m always hesitant to guess) along with a more assertive lemony citrus bitterness as well (Centennial? - see, I was lying above); some modest fruitiness from the candied malt core and the yeast; balanced overall, with any core sweetness well tempered by the hops and the alcohol. Pleasant to drink, with some tongue-numbing bitterness and lightly prickly alcohol keeping things lively. Long-lasting finish of citrus, oranges, and modest emerging toastiness; reasonably balanced at the far end of things.

Bottle. Pours a bright orange color with a bright white foamy head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is huge floral, piney, citrus hop notes, dank nugs. Palate stings and leaves the tongue hop blasted, bitterness in the swallow is refreshing and juicy. Flavors of citrus hop notes, fresh grass, juicy mangoes. Total hop bomb.

Pours a cloudy amber with a thick, rocky white head. Orange and grapefruit aroma really jumps out of the glass. The flavor is fairly dry - just a tiny hint of sweetness - but it has a thick, almost creamy mouthfeel and a lingering grapefruit-pith hop bitterness on the finish.

22oz Bottle. Pours copper gold with white head, nicely laced. Nice hop aroma, taste is hop bitter with only a slight sweet at the end. Agree with others it’s a little overly bitter. Still a nice brew. ljay6880 (475) - , Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2011
On draft at Capone’s. Pour is a very cloudy red highlighted orange with two big fingers of foamy beige head; the lacing left was amazing and the foam lasted so long I had a permanent beer mustache while drinking it. Nose is citrus, hops, melon, mango, and a bit of pine. Taste is right on par, with a fruity, mellow hop introduction. This fades a touch, then you are smacked with a hop wallop (very bitter) in the finish. This is a very solid DIPA, which I enjoyed very much, but I would have liked it to finish as mellow as the rest of the experience. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2011
