look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: The beer is very cloudy dark amber in color and appears a little milky. It poured with a thin head that faded away very quickly.
S: The nose has strong fruity aromas.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is quite fruity. Flavors of apples and pears seem to stand out in particular; there are also hints of spices and sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and sticks to your tongue like a comfortable blanket. Aging definitely improves the mouthfeel of this beer.
O: Considering its strength, this beer is quite easy to drink because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste. Nevertheless, it’s a good beer to sip and savor.

On tap at the dutch into a goblet. Golden amber color nice white head with good retention. Scent is muted pine and cirrus hoppyness. Taste is more balanced than one would expect of a dipa. Mild cerealness balances the citrus hop. Mouth is light to medium, slightly drying. Not too shaby.

I believe I've tried this now at three differant places, all on tap, last night it was at the Peekskill Brewery. Menu said 12 ounce pour, 7 bucks, but it arrived in pint glass, nice.

Medium almond amber, minor head and just a few bits of lacing.

Some lite pine, and earthy hops in the muted nose.

Decent carbonation and medium body. Middle of the road DIPA, what this one is missing is some sort of hop crunch. I expect a quality DIPA to pack in more of a hoppy personality. It is moderatly bitter, but hop aroma and taste sadly understated. Best thing I can say is the 9.4% is well hidden.

Served on-tap at Jimmy`s No. 43 in NYC.

Appearance is a golden color with a smallish head. The nose has pine, grapefruit, flowers and hops. While the taste contains citrus, bubble gum, more grapefuit and hops. Mouthfeel is medium with bitterness in the finish, which does not stay for very long. All in all, a pretty good DIPA, but would not put it at the top of my list.

A- a bright copper with very little head and lace for a DIPA.

S- lots of hops and grapefruit rind, followed by mango and pine, bread, and some sweetness.

T- very much like the smell. The hops are not a punch, like the tsunami reference implies. instead, it is incredibly drinkable.

O- very solid, almost remarkable, DIPA here. Incredibly drinkable, very refreshing, and not too heavy.

Had on tap at the Lark on 9/7; pours hazy gold color with a creamy 1 finger beige head that leaves little to no lacing around the tulip glass.

Smells of big hops, with floral hops, flowers, citrus hops, grapefruit, spices, herbs, pepper, caramel and pine cones; this reeks of sweet oily hops, with citrus notes dominating the aroma and the alcohol coming through at the end.

Tastes like it smells, with floral hops, flowers, citrus hops, grapefruit, lemon zest, coriander, herbs, spices like pepper, cinnamon and cumin, caramel, alcohol and pine cones/piney hops; this beer brings heat, with the hops spices sizzling the tongue in a wave (pun intended) of hoppy spices. This is not a session beer, as the bitterness is too much, but it's a decent DIPA that hides the ABV very well.

Mouthfeel is creamy and oily slick, with average carbonation, a medium body and a bitter finish that gets more spicy as it warms. Considering the heat and spices of this brew, it was pretty drinkable, just not a session beer for me. Glad I had this as it was quite enjoyable and I always love a good DIPA.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Tulipped into glass. Brilliant orange with slight carbonation but plenty of sexy shimmying. Citrus and pine aromas, strong, but not brazen.
Bitter taste opening to dry pine with some grapefruit. Malt backbone available upon request but does not come standard. Drinks like a 6-7.5% IPA, super dry, absolutely delicious.
If the aroma backed up the bold flavor, this would be world class. Instead, it is merely amazing to drink, but not to behold with your nose in the glass.
Perhaps I'm having this with a bit too much age at this point, but kegged and fridged, the hops shouldn't've faded too much. Ahhh the sensitive hop monster. So shy.
Put this in your blowhole and gargle..

Had this delightful brew on tap at a local craft beer restaurant. Into a tulip.

A: Pours as a nice golden color, easy to see through with good carbonation. half finger head, with nice retention and decent lacing.

S: Upon first smell, this had a fruity malty smell, that opened up to a bit of hoppiness. Nice smell that intrigues you.

T: First sip reveals some bitterness and hoppiness, but much less than was expected from this DIPA. Although it is a 9.4% ABV, you would never guess based on the taste. Finishes with mild bitterness and delicious citric fruit flavor.

M: This is a fairly medium bodied beer, that has strong carbonation, but not overpowering. And leave your palate craving more.

O: overall this is a winner! Greenport really nailed it with this one, and I will surely look for it on tap wherever I go.

Wow, I didn't realize the ABV was so high... A straight up hoptastic, bitter brew that smells amazing and goes down pretty good. Really bitter but I can deal with it, almost like a grapefruit because of all the citrus. Bitter, sticky aftertaste but still I can drink it, not necessarily strong but you gotta pause for a bit. Powerful, if anything I might think up a better food pairing to kill the bitterness which is probably my only problem with it. Worthy though.

Greenport Hopnami is a local Double India Pale Ale that New York can take pride in. I've had it on tap a few times now, most specifically last night. It seems to be DIPA week in Brendanland.

In appearance it's a golden amber with a lacey head that has a bit of cling and sustains nicely, even in the Chimay wide goblet thinger it was poured into. Smell is almost all citrus, and I actually had a little trouble grabbing much of anything. Malt there too, but the aromatics are predominantly juicy citrus. Taste follows suit with a bitter citrus bite followed by a heavily caramel backbone and a clean watery finish that leaves a bitter grapefruit aftertaste.

Hopnami feels great in the mouth, medium to full body with great carbonation throughout, even as it sits and warms. And the best part of the brew is the easy drinking of it. Malts ease the 9.4 alcohol by volume, sweet citrus takes care of the taste, and a clean bitter finish and aftertaste leave you wanting more.

Despite the natural disaster proportion name, it's not overstated. But it's done well, and I'll never turn it down. Cheers to Greenport!

Greenport Hopnami has a pale, copper colored body with a thin line of off-white head that has fairly good retention and lacing.

Rather hoppy aroma, with lots of fruit and a substantial malt backbone.

A lot of tropical fruits including pineapple, apricot, orange, grapefruit and a little bit of lemon lead off. They start out bitter but turn more sweet than anything else. The middle has a load of pale, sweet malt and a little bit of caramel malt. A little too sweet, especially when the hop profile lends this beer all of the sweetness that it needs. A hint of more intense bitterness and piney flavor finishes things off, along with a little alcohol bite.

This is a big-bodied IIPA.

Not bad at all, a little on the malty side though, which is pretty ridiculous to write, but IIPAs shy away from the malt these days. If these fruity hops were left to run the show this beer would be a different animal.

A - Pours a very clear copper-orange color with a half finger of white head. The head faded fairly quickly to a ring and left behind a bit of lacing.

S - There is a lot of bitter floral/grassy hops in the forefront. There are also some nice fruity/citrusy undertones wit ha touch of malt beneath the hops.

T - Starts off with some strong citrus hops that and just a touch of sweet malt flavor. Through the middle the bitterness really kicks in with some really nice fruity sweetness kicking in. The finish is some nice lingering bitterness with just a touch of alcohol making its presence known. Very well balanced.

M - Medium bodied with a healthy amount of assertive carbonation that is quite lively on the tongue. Very nice dry finish. Overall super smooth and super crisp mouthfeel.

D - Very drinkable. With a fairly high abv (9.4 %), this beer stays super drinkable and only gives a hint of that level. The taste is very nicely balanced and very enjoyable. One of the best mouthfeels for a DIPA also.
