look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured into a signature sam adams pint glass.

A - Got a very thick 3 inch frothy head atop a nice very cloudy hazy light orange. Typical appearance of a DIPA.

S - Getting a lot of pine and slight citrus...not getting a ton of grapefruit which is surprising for a west coast hop bomb....with a huge malt backbone. Getting some honey sweetness too - after pouring you get all the same just a little bit more fruity..

T/M - getting all these nice hoppy notes, with a nice warming alcohol punch after swallowing. Medium to thick mouth feel and well carbonated.

Overall - A decent beer put out by port, but by far not one of the best ones ive had by them. Decent beer, but will not purchase again.

From notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.

This has a typical color for a Port DIPA; bright orange, with a nice haziness and a fluffy off white head.

A good amount of caramel malt starts up front, with a generous helping of mango, grapefruit, pineapple, and some other tropical fruity hops.

The flavor progresses in a predictable but enjoyable way. The initial sweetness is smooth and not overwhelming. After a few moments, the flavor turns from sweet to bitter with a modest explosion of fruity hops. Mango, pineapple, and grapefruit contribute to a robust flavor that is more tropical than citrus.

The body is a bit fuller than medium; the carbonation is creamy and pleasant. There is a graininess to this as well.

Overall I enjoyed this beer a fair amount; nice, hoppy, and the transitions among the flavors is nice and smooth.

Pours a tawny gold, hazy and doesn't form alot of head yet manages to leave an attractive ring of lacing behind. Retention is basically none since there was no head to begin with.

Hops dominate but beneath lies a steady honey dipped grain and caramel malt backbone. Tropical hops of mangoes, papaya, sweet pineapple with some stock pine and red citrus. Floral yet very sweet with a tinge of alcohol.

Ample malt comes in with a tight bready and honey profile some sweetening molasses and caramel sneak in before a blast of citrus and piney hops, the aftertaste is a very pungent pine that balances the sweetness of the malt and alcohol barely detectable on the back end as the beer dries with a big pine note.

Average body weighed down by the yeast. Moderate and appropriate carbonation, the sweetness hides the alcohol and the hops balance nicely. Dries well.

Really good DIPA to satisfy the hop fix. A bit heavy and dank for the summer but made for San Diego where the May and June months are kept under a cloud and temperatures moderate. Tropical and robust come to mind with this brew.

Like Port's Mongo but it hides it's alcohol better. The sweetness might be overwhelming for some but drunk chilled, it balances out the hops in an ideal manner. Fruity and tropical aroma that translates somewhat into the taste. Overall a great DIPA and one to revisit annually.
