The aroma is full of dankness, malt, citrus, orange, grapefruit and lemon. The color is like copper, classic West Coast IPA. The taste is full of dankness, malt, citrus, orange, grapefruit, lemon and lime peel. A nice beer! tricksta_p (5704) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2018
Bottle from De Bierliefhebber. Fruity piney hop aroma with malt, citrus, pine resin, grapefruit, orange, grass, a floral touch, and spruce. Light to moderate sweet flavour with a firm bitterness. Body is medium. Such a re-revelation to drink a truly classic bitter piney West Coast IPA in the hazecraze era. DenverLogan (1359) - North Bend, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2018
From a 22 oz bottle into a St Bernardus stem glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of grains, minerals, straw hops. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grains, pale malt, straw hops, hay, bitter herbs. Overall rich, grainy, bitter, so-so. thorongil2 (3788) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2018

From Sept 2008
This beer pours a hazy orange gold. There's about an inch of foam and the lacing is very good.
The smell has big notes of citrus hops with some tropical fruit and some sweet malt floating in the background.
The taste is also very hoppy, at least at first. Good notes of mango and grapefruit up front...bitter but not overdone. Then some caramel malt sweetness moves in and there's definitely some balance here now. Nice! The more sips I take, the more I notice the balance and man, that works for me.
Mouthfeel is on the low side of medium and the carbonation is lightish but lively enough, for me, to keep the flavours "dancing" on my palate. It finishes with a caramel malt/earthy malt sweetness *and* citrus bitterness. In other words, the finish is also nicely balanced. I like!!
Head retention is good and lacing is also good.
Bottom line: I think Port Brewing did a fine job with this American IPA. Very tasty and quite the drinkable brew.

Bottle. Orange colour, cloudy, nice rocky head, poor lacing. Aroma is lots of tropical fruit, with tangerine, mango, lichee. Fortunately no spruce or grapefruit. Medium bitterness, short and not aggressive, light sweetness.Soft carbonation. I don't like IPAs, but I enjoyed this one. wojanex (806) - warszawa, POLAND - DEC 7, 2017
oj coś chyba po dacie mi się trafiło, ale to można tylko mniemać, bo daty na butelce nie uświadczysz. jakieś to suche, kostyczne, goryczkowe, bryzy oceanicznej ni ..uja nie uświadczysz. trudno oceniać,kiedy nie zna się stanu pyfka, ale przynajmniej barwa i piana trzymają fason. ocena na zachętę rumproasts (6053) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2017
Bottle. Golden with one finger head. Prototypical west coast IPA. Big citrus and resin. Nothing groundbreaking, but just a very well done beer. superspak (6642) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2017
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 12/14/2017. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy medium golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with fatnastic retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, light honey, lightly toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, light honey, lightly toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine, citrus rind, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, lightly toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy, and sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is an incredible IPA. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink; despite the aggressively bitter/drying finish. Absolutely spot on classic tasting West Coast Amarillo/C hopped IPA. Very vibrant and dank hops, with just enough pale malt to balance the resinous finish. A highly enjoyable offering. nihtila (4146) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2017
