Bottle from Lazy Dog Growlers in Macon area, dated 10/1/14, poured 11/25/14. Hoping for the best after almost 2 months. Pours cloudy golden with a massive creamy white to off white head. Nice citrus aroma with light pine and grass, some honey sweetness and light maltiness. Flavor is lots of tropical citrus, way over the top malt sweetness, some strange off flavors. Nearly completely flat, dry left on the palate. Hoping I just got a bad bottle or something here. Not very good.

I like this beer on the colder side: the lower temps bring out the hops, and the resin.

Bottle date: 10/14- only about a month old.

Poured a copper red color with a 2 F head in an imperial pint glass. The brewmaster
on the Port Brewing site used a pint glass in the video, so I decided to do the same.

Nice lacing.

The aroma at first is not strong- later, an earthiness and vanilla not usually found in DIPAs.

The MF is quite carbonated.

The taste is King. Extreme citrus rind. This beer is exceptionally hoppy.
The finish is crisp.

Overall: my favorite beer from the brewery. I have enjoyed all their beers- very West coast- but this brew stands out- West Coast DIPA on steroids.
