Bomber. I’d like to thank Tronraner for making this possible. The pour is a cloudy dark gold with a very tall white head that remains for the duration of the drink. Lots of wonderful, clean hop aroma on this one. Pineapple, grapefruit, pine, orange, you name it, it’s here. It’s not overly aggressive like some other west coast IPA’s, but it is most certainly robust and very deep. The flavor is rich and drying with flavors of lemons, grapefruit, pine. This ale is bitter, but not piercingly so. Malts are right on to attempt to wet the palate a little, but definitely lose the fight against the massive hop depth. This is a stand out, new school, American IPA. Very well done. blankboy (7863) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2007
My bottle (22oz) shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of toncatcher. Pours a murky copper-orange with a large lasting fluffy off-white head. Aroma consists of lots of fresh, wonderful-smelling hops -- a true hop medley -- what else do you need really? Flavour’s the same, it’s a hop smorgasboard! There’s plenty of malt in the back to balance it out and it has a pleasant long bitter finish. So tasty. Medium to full bodied. Simply fucking awesome!

Aroma – Had a deep IPA hopped up aroma. Great for us in the NW
Appearance – Deep amber brown, clear and with a thin head
Flavor – This was a great IPA to drink. Had some good malts in the background. The hops where flavorful and tasty.
Palate – Had some good flavors the hops and malts where a good match.
Overall –This was a great IPA with a good flavor and finish. A great beer to try. Port has become a great brewed beer.
served cold from 22oz bottle. a gold/orange color with an off-white head that leaves some lacing. aroma is all hops with a hint of fruitiness. flavor is excellent, the hop bitterness is not overdone but quite present. very good ipa. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2007
Shared with Hogtown harry and Blankboy, ,courtesy of blankboy. Very, very nice aroma - piny and citrus hops, lot lots of centennial hops (one of the few that I can identify). Great. Murky deep dark yellow, good sized big yellow head - good lacing. Taste - really up front orange citrus, smooth, gives way to lovely bitter and light malt taste. Lemon citrus as well. A ton, absolute ton of flavour for only 7% - this is more flavourful than many DIPA’s. A stunning IPA.

Bomber. Hazy orange with thick white head. Big hops with typical grapefruit, citrus, pine resin and good malt backbone. Taste is the same, although grapefruit rind came though. Nice body, with great lingering finish...nice beer. HogTownHarry (7084) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - OCT 10, 2007
Bottle (22oz). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, blankboy’s bottle. Murky orange pour, large fluffy off-white lasting head. Aroma - ahhh, hops; good hops; citrus, resin, pine/spruce, lush and pungent, enough malt backing to remind me I’m not drinking bark juice - and a tinge of lactose, just because. Taste leans more to the grapefruit pitch hops, starts on the mild side, nice malt/hop balance, then it builds - acidic, dry, pithy bitterness for days, alcohol enters in the linger. Thick, dry body, incredibly astringent, nicely acidic, pine and grapefruit sweetness in the linger. Juicy and incredibly hoppy - this seemed like dIPA hop levels to us - either way, WTG Port Brewing. Again. EricDanger (23) - USA - OCT 10, 2007
A good solid IPA. I think it kind of gets lost with all the other american IPA’s out right now, but its worth a try. Not overly hoppy, but you can tell its there. The nose was great and full of citrus and pine. Brownish-hazy color with a decent head. Had a bomber from the local bev-mo. ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Thanks to Hellbilly for the bmber. pours dark gold with a hazy twinge. nice cream colored head and some spotty lacing. nice hop flavor with a crisp and clean finish. mreeves (276) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Pours a dark golden color, not much carbonation or lacing in the glass. Plenty of hops here, but an almost watery texture to it. A solid IPA, and a great deal too ($3.99 for a bomber in Washington state). I would definitely have more.
