just a lot of foam on the soft pour.... tried my best to keep it down, interrupting and pouring, etc.... light, billow-y..... slap-stick-y foam to the side of the glass..... I don't like that kind of stuff.
smells skunky in the bottle, urine/skunk in the glass,,,,, wondering what to think of this before I step in . . . . . very little carbonation. some bitterness; like someone else said- "gentler" than their others.... alright, I guess.... shoulda gone with the grapefruit sculpin 12 oz'er instead of this bomber.... gawd I hate bombers when it's not a great brew..... why don't they listen??
I guess it's alright. I mean I havent poured it down the drain yet. just gulping it to finish it and move on to the next one. not really enjoyable, but tolerable. did they forget to clean the vat out after making the Chronic????

I didn't love this as much as many of Port's other hoppy offerings (Hop-15, Mongo, Anniversary), but then, it's not trying to be those others. This is a subtler, gentler IPA, and for what it is—bearing in mind I've only had a couple other fresh-hop beers—I think it does a pretty darn good job.
