look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Quite hazy amber color with a one finger head with short to medium retention and leaving scattered laces.
Nice citrusy aroma with grapefruit, very fresh oranges, pineapple and caramel malt.
Nice flavor full of resins, pine, grapefruit, slightly toasted malts, spices and American yeast. Deliciously dry and bitter aftertaste with a good duration. It made me sneeze a few times, meaning passed the hop test.
Medium body with perfect carbonation. Alcohol of 7.7% abv is very well hidden.
Positive surprise (ps. It is fresh), it doesn't start so great, but it got a quite decent and bold flavor going on. It did beat the other three IPAs I just had from three well known brewers. Interesting how it has shown improvement noticeable in the most recent comments. So, keep the good work. Sure worth a risk.

Acquired from Cuzco so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains earthy hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with some mild sweetness from flavors of caramel and citrus. Then a strong but not over-powering earthy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid IPA to drink for a long time.

Port Jeff Brewing "Party Boat India Pale Ale" 7.7% ALC/VOL
12 oz. can, "06/04/14 IHC"... I'm assuming that's the canning date as it's quite fresh.
$2.70 @ Stinky Brklyn, 215 Smith St., Brooklyn, NY

Appearance: Hazy deep-amber / orange. Pillowy off-white head holds very well. Very good lacing. Seemingly moderate carbonation based on slow-rising tiny bubbles.

Aroma: Pungent, pineapple, pine, citrus, some malt. It could be brighter; and there is a kind of off-note that leaves it with a bit of a "Pine-Sol" character. Overall, still very good.

Flavor: More malt shows up, which is nice. Solid pine flavor backed by citrus fruit, pith, and pungency. The malt combines with the hops across the middle to deliver a sweet dollop of soft tangerine. Pungent and herbal in the finish. Solidly bitter. No sign of "Pine-Sol". Aggressively hoppy but somehow balanced - the moderate carbonation probably helps with that. Alcohol never shows, but you will feel it.

Mouthfeel: Wide, smooth maltiness with just a delicate tingle once it's been poured and warmed a little.

Overall: Credit for going to the level of intensity that the hops offer. It's a bit of a wild ride. Drinkability suffers, but that's a trade-off I'm willing to take. If you love hoppy beers this one should probably not be missed.
