4.03/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: poured from a 22 oz, bottle into an imperial pint glass, golden orange amber colored with a large white head that lingers leaving good lacing, slightly hazy

S: heavy on citrus hops up front, slighty bready with a notable yeast presence, has a lemony pine aroma

T: bitter grapefruit up front that flades into a slight malt sweetness, light flavors of lemon and orange in the middle, fades to a slight pine bitterness that lingers

M: medium to lighter bodied with higher carbonation, refreshing feel

O: an excellent new offering by Port at a very reasonable price, hopefully it will be available in 6-pks as I will gladly return to it

This is a solid drinkable beer. Cleaningo ut the shelves of the summer beers to make room for the big boys of winter. Certainly worth the try.

My first review here;
Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass, creamy head, dissipates quickly.
Golden orange color with very subtle nose of fruit and strangely enough, a slight hint of ammonia.
Not what I was expecting in terms of hoppiness, this has plenty of hops for even the most discerning hop head and is far from your typical pale ale.
Piney front taste with a slight popcorny finish. Very easy to drink and does exactly what its designed for, a simple easy to drink summertime ale. At 6.0 abv this is very sessionable for me and is very inexpensive at my local bodega at $3.99
Another fine brew from Port.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours slightly golden amber with a big frothy off white head that hangs around and leaves plenty of thick lacing.

S: Dank herbal notes, citrus, orange & a little grapefruit, tropical fruit, pineapple, maybe a little passion fruit, and light caramel malt sweetness.

T: Bright citrus, lemon, tangerine, and a hint of grapefruit, some herbal notes, pine, a little tropical fruit, maybe a little spice, backed with a little light crackery malt with just a touch of sweetness.

M: A bit towards the lighter end of medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Pretty darn nice pale ale. Just what the doctor ordered today.

22 oz bottle. Clear orange body with a frothy white head. Nice lacing and retention. Aromas of fresh hops, pine, grapefruit, a bit dank. Flavor is crisp and hoppy, biscuit, lightly bitter. Refreshing and very easy drinking.
