Served in a sort of skinny pint glass at The Standard Pour as part of Port Brewing pint night 8/6/11.

Port's entry in this ever popular style is a fairly light colored IPA with mainly yellow, goldenrod shades. The head is a nice creamy cream colored affair and very sticky. There is a slight chill haze, but an excellent head.

It's got one of those blunt, not too strong, grapefruit rind bitter noses. No trace of malt, it seems to be one of those truly Californian IPAs where malt is only there because it has to be. I'm really only getting grapefruit aromatics.

Lately I've had many beers where the taste was very nearly the same as the aroma and this is another one of them. Very robust rind-y bitterness, a little malt sweetness, leafy hops, and all kinds of grapefruit.

Creamy, coating mouthfeel with some prickle.

I find this much like Green Flash West Coast IPA in its grinding grapefruit and also like a less fruity Stone IPA. Quite good, but not a standout on my first beer from Port/Lost Abbey.

Serving type: on-tap

A classic West Coast IPA. A beautiful strong head that lasts. Strong citrus notes. Light pine after flavors. I was expecting a heaver flavor by the appearance, but a rather light IPA. Very good, but for a great IPA, try Port Brewing anniversary imperial IPA.
