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.

Beer was served in my mug at Estelle's in Boston.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is an amber copper color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Resiny pine, citrus, caramel, chocolate, and toasted malts.

Taste: Pine, citrus, resiny, chocolate, caramel, and toasted malts.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, clean, crisp, some booze, tingly bitterness, medium bodied, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Very nice Imperial red.
