brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2008
22 oz bottle. 2007. Enjoyed on New Years eve with friends. Clear golden pour wit a light head and plentiful carbonation. Lightly sweet caramel aroma with citrus hop notes. The flavor is where it is at! Excellent IPA. The malt backbone to this is perfect in my opinion with light biscuit notes and the perfect amount of caramel holding up terrific heaps of initial citrus then pine hops. Just a hint of sweetness. The bitter side of this is big but not harsh in anyway. Medium semi-dry mouth feel. This thing is just about perfect. If I had about a dozen more bottles I might just have another 5 in my rating list.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Bottle. Pours a nearly opaque orangy amber with medium white head. Aroma is full of hops, pine and citrusy with a hint of some weird urine type smell. Flavor is moderately bitter but full of sweet malts. Finish is on the shorter side but pleasantly bitter and hoppy. Good IPA.

tomhenderson (166) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2007
22 oz bomber. Poured a fairly hazy straw color with a half-finger head that laced the glass nicely. Aroma was rich with sweet caramel malts and classic American hops, mostly Cascade. The flavor was similarly classic. Mouthfeel was very creamy. Moderately bitter; perfect for an IPA. Wish Port would open an east coast brewery (NC!). A very nice, classic American IPA!

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2007
22oz bomber. thanks to my Secret Santa for this. Pours a golden orange with a tall fluffy head. Citrus, grapefruit, and caramel nose. It seems though a touch off with a earthy green notes. Decently bitter. Fruity, toffee, with a touch of chocolate and the pine, grapefruit, and earthy hops around it. The earthiness seems a bit off still, but decent none the less.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy, straw color with a just off-white head. Big citrus hop aroma; oranges, grapefruit and lemon. Slight caramel malt aromas as well. Theres a sweet maltiness that hits at first sip but the overwhelming bitterness overtakes it almost instantly. Tons of grapefruit. Lingering bitter finish. Id say this beer is a classic west-coast IPA.

franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Pours a hazy golden amber with gynormous head that dies down quick and laces thick. Smells of citrus, floral hops, rind, mild grapefruit. Tastes as is smells with a nice malt balance. Big hops but all flatened out. Hoppy rind bitterness finishes and lingers slightly. Medium to light feel with great carbonation and zero ABV presence. Another awesome brew from Port and another awesome IPA from the west coast.
