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.

Pours a hazy golden honey color with a frothy off-white head, lots of big bubbles. 3.75
The aroma is of tropical fruit hops. Lots of pineapple and some pine and grapefruit rind. Light bready notes from the malt. 3.75
The taste is more bitter than the aroma. More pine and resin come through. Some pineapple and apricot. Big chalky aspirin finish. 3.75
The beer has a moderate body with semi-soft carbonation. Quite bitter and dry on the palate. Lingering bitterness. 3.5
A quite bitter and dank IPA. Its a bit boozy but it doesn't come through all that much. 3.7

Pours a hazy golden amber ale.
Mild hoppy smell.
Hoppy and sweet on the initial sip. A really nice hop profile comes around with a bunch of bitter and piney hops. A big improvement from the nose. Solid mouth feel, tasty, and enjoyable.
Pretty good shit for a local and now canned for the go.
