very BIG beer but very well balanced! color is a murky red. reeks of booze and hops but comes across with a huge malt bill to back it up. this reminds me of a barley wine in some aspects, too huge to just be an IIPA. very substantial beer, and one not to be trifled with. impressive!
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2018 Purchased at BevMo for $7.99, Shark Attack is a Double Red Ale crafted by Port Brewing Co.
The air reveals caramel and citrus on the nose. The appearance is a dark amber with a medium beige head. The alcohol content is 9%.
Caramel is sensed from start to finish. Juicy orange compliments the caramel body. Grapefruit is noted with the citrus bite on the take and easily picked out in the bitter finish. Pine is felt upon the mouthfeel and fully experienced in the citrus finish. Honey sweetens the complexion and tasted when you lick your chops.
Shark Attack is an incredible Double Red Ale. On the onset, the amount of hops and caramel attack your taste buds. As the beer warms, you start to taste everything, especially the honey. The caramel, orange, pine, and honey combination is delicious and unique. Shark Attack leaves you wanting more and enjoying the onslaught.
Cheers. Prost. Drink for the love of beer.

75cl bottle from AbeerVinum, Rimini, Italy. Pours intense dark brown with very fine whitish foam. Aroma is malty, red fruits, herbal. Body is relatively dense with average carbonation. Taste is markedly bitter, with some good sweetness behind, quite an alcoholic feeling. Some sourness too. Finish is long and intensely bitter. 77ships (11908) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 8, 2017
[Malmö 2017] Draft sample @ The Bishops Arms Savoy. Dark amber, creamy tanned head. Nose is perfume, leaves, herbal cough syrup sweet. Taste is strange perfume, pine, sweet cough syrup, perfume. Body is malt syrup. Malt dominates too much lacking the pine & resin hops makes it feel like a very old school DIPA with bit too much age on it. might be a good beer but to out of synch with current preferences it feels or just mine given the quite high score. ciocanelu (3340) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 7, 2017
Hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma has toasted malt, light caramel, resiny/piney hops and a hint of fenel. Taste is nutty, bitter and resiny with some dried orange notes. Medium body and carbonation. Complex, tasty and quite easy drinking for its ABV.

Bottle thanks to and shared with the Mrs at home - pours dark amber with a beige head. Sweet and slight toasted biscuit malty with notes of caramel and toffee, some melted fudge, some marmalade fruity shred, nice hoppy backing, pine needles, warming sweet malty into the close.

On tap at First Draft Taproom & Kitchen. Reddish amber appearance with a lingering tan head. Mild aroma of pine, resinous hops, caramel malt, toffee and toasted grain. Similar flavor, adding moderate hop bitterness and a mild grainy sweetness. Medium body with a slight dry feel. Slightly disappointing overall. chadski (193) - California, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Nose is malt and molasses. Crystallized brown sugar flavors. Fully bodied. Another solid offering from Port. mezr (158) - California, USA - MAY 5, 2017
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a glass it shows a clear reddish-orange with a thick beige head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is strong caramel, ripe fruit and a bit of pine in the background. The smooth malty taste quickly gives way to a pronounced bitter that carries all the way through a long finish with hints of alcohol rising to the surface. Soft carbonation, medium body, and almost creamy on the palate.
