Paid just 7 dollars for the single. Not sure on the date it had some yeast particles but it may be unfiltered.

A - Looks pretty good unfiltered looking with a slight hazy body and a 1/2 inch of head that sticks to a real decent lace ring.
S - Nice bitterness citrus and mango hops all around. Sweet malts and sugary body.
T - Came off bitter and aggressive on tap but in this older bottle it drinks rather well. Citrus and pineapple like hop bitterness supporting crystal malts and a sweet malt body.
M - Hides the ABV rather well with a medium body and smooth hop bitterness.

Overall I could see why this beer is so sought after and am now glad port brewery has started to distributed more to my state. Look forward to trying more of their beers!

Pours a finger of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is grapefruit and lemon. Nice.
The taste has a strong dry bitterness, there's supporting malt that keeps it balanced.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
A bold bitter IPA. Good.
