great ipa, my substitute for high tide. is it as good?, of course not, but will do, especially for $5 bomber.

beautiful bright lemon, ive said it before, port brewing brews the prettiest beers in the world. big bitter hop aroma, lots of grapefruit, and the tastes follows, mix of grapefruit, orange, and lemon on that familiar perfect pale malt background. did i mention bitter? yes, bitter.

outstanding.

Poured into a tumbler. Bottled 3/9/12.

A: Pours with two fingers of frothy, creamy beige colored head that never quits. Very hazy lots of yeast sediment, orange amber color, excellent retention, fantastic lacing observed.

S: Citrusy grapefruit, pine, lemons, orange and a bit of floral hops. Some sweet cracker malt lingers as well.

T: Bitter citrus and pine upfront, a bit of lemon and orange as well. Not much of a malt presence but there's some slight balance.

M: Medium bodied, very smooth, good level of carbonation, drinks very nicely.

O: A solid west coast representation, lots of flavor, nice and citrusy, perfect for warm weather.

Split a bomber with a few friends:

Pretty standard west coast IPA. Very hop forward with orange and grapefruit flavors coming through. Maybe a bit unbalanced as there isn't much of a malt backbone, but personally with my IPA's the more the hops the merrier. Easily drinkable and a great taste and mouthfeel. Very good IPA, recommend picking up.

On Tap at matchbox palm springs ca for 5$

Appearance - Hazy amber colour with a huge size frothy beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, caramel, hops, grapefruit, apricot

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and the taste is made up of caramel and malts mixed with a fair amount of hops. It also has a touch of grapefruit and some apricot and a bit of a pine flavour. It ends with a sweet hoppy aftertaste.

Overall - A nice west coast IPA that doesn't have as much of a fruitiness as I would like. I was expecting a little bit more from the hop department since it was apparently a fresh keg. It tasted almost the same as it did when I had it from a bottle last year. Still worth trying and I'd drink/but it again.

A: Poured a clear orange color with a massive white head.

S: Nose was hoppy with a touch of sweet malt, could really smell the hops.

T: Taste was a little tropical fruit with orange peel and hits of flowers, a tad bit dry and well balanced but then some hop oils hit ya. The hops were slightly bitter, floral, piney and citrus.

M: Mouthfeel was smooth, tasty a tad slick with a medium body and good carbonation.

O: Great IPA!
