This is the best IPA I have ever tasted!!It has a very fruity,floral aroma.Color a nice amber.Head was average,but dissipated quickly.Very tasty,and not too overbearing like many IPA’s.I think it is very underrated.Had it on tap at the Carlsbad Pizza Port.Took home a jug too!! psbrewlvr (15) - Palm Springs, California, USA - JUL 19, 2007
A perfect IPA in my opinion 5+++ all the way. Exccellent use of differnet hops along with some new ones that add complexity, great use of the ABV and great use of malts. PERFECTION jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Bomber at Jerrys. Orange gold with good, foamy white head / Nose of hops, citrus and cream / Medium body, creamy with discernable malts and potent, but not bitter, hops, and fine finish / Flavors of orange, cream, cut pine, and burnt sugar / Lush, and perfect.

This is simply the most perfect IPA and my favourite #1 so far! Perfect appearance, feeling and taste (which stays long!). Enough excitement but no gimmicks in this taste. Citrus and pine, very nice aftertaste too. McCarty23 (53) - Vista, California, USA - APR 17, 2015
Perfect West Coast IPA. All the citrus and mango pine and grass aroma and flavors needed or even wished for. Mild malts help hop flavors dominate this beer.

Massive hop aroma of pine and fresh hops, very fresh. First off big bitter hop start. Fresh hops into it massively. Finishes very clean from Orange clear pour with good head. Been drinking for years and is always excellent. Autonetics1969 (10) - - DEC 28, 2015
Another perfect beer in my opinion from the port empire. Sticky piney mango hops in both taste and aroma. If she’s with great hop oiliness as they be expected in the style. Nice buzz after these as well. thegreat78 (42) - San Marcos, California, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Pours a hazy orange amber color with a two finger off white head that resists fading. A good amount of lacing present. The smell is floral pine and grapefruit over a sweet malty presence. Full bodied the mouth feel is adequately carbonated and conditioned by the high intensity hops. There is a balance sweet malty character as well. Full flavored, the sweet malt and piny taste combination yields to a grapefruit after taste that linger appropriately. I’m not sure what style this is more true to; an IPA or a Double IPA...no, i take that back. This rivals many high end double ipas.

Måske den bedste øl jeg endnu har fået. Meget bitter men ikke for kvalm. Lækkert phildorsey (161) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2011
Nice thick frothy head; 1 pint 6 oz btl. Pours slightly hazy and amber/orange. Citrus and floral notes prickels the beak. Oh...the first taste is pleasingly shocking; long lasting flavors completely agree with my toung. Can’t quite put my hand on it, but it’s different from other IPA’s. The taste is splendid and refreshing. Instantly one of my favorites.
