Hazy amber with a really big fluffy beige head, leaving a lot of messy lacing on the glass.
Smell of sweet citrusy hop and rich caramel maltiness, candy, peach, some pineapple, pine, faint alcohol.
Rich fermenting tangerine, pineapple syrup, candied grapefruit, bit of mango and maracuja. Sweet caramelised malts, honey, hints of toffee and toast. Pine towards the finish, spicy leafiness, nice and bitter.
Pretty long finish and a nice intense aftertaste, with some prickling hop, lots of citrus peel, caramel, candy, hints of tropical fruit still around. Medium body, prickly carbonation.
A really by-the-book amber ale, lots of Westcoast hoppiness, rich malts, nice and balanced.

Murky and overcarbed. Wish it were better.

Bottle poured into a nonic pint glass

A: Pours deep reddish brown amber with a frothy tan head that hangs around and laces well.

S: Caramel malt sweetness, some dank hops, and some light pine and citrus.

T: Roasty malt, toffee, light coffee, some pine and citrus, with a slight fruitiness on the back side. Hides its alcohol well.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Maybe not my favorite, but not bad.

If your a hop head this is a great red ale for you, I just don't like hops that much.

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.
