Port is finally distributed to my area! Picked up the bomber for $7.50 into a pint glass.

A - Easily agitated I must have shook it up since it gave me 2+ inches of mocha head atop of a hazy mahogany brown.
S - Woody with a citrus hops zest. Mild but constant.
T - Much more hoppy than I expected! A hardcore pine blast to the face with underlining caramel sweetness and some hard wood flavors. Flavors do get a bit subdued after a few sips making it more enjoyable.
M - Medium bodied not heavy for 9%. Still it is quite a sipper.

Overall kind of a disappointment I had the Tidal Wave IPA and the Mongo IPA's both had exceptional flavor but this even though piney faded quite a bit with repeated sips. Very drinkable but not worth a repeated purchase.

Had this beer during trip to San Diego, CA from tap (place called The Hopping Pig in Gaslamp area), it was decent, but not something I wanted to order a second time. For an amber ale it is very strong so if you like strong red ales I'd give it a try.
