4.15/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into a New Belgium snifter.

This is a porter in name only. My ratings ignore the BJCP description and try to reflect my personal opinion of the quality of what's been brewed, keeping in mind that the bottle says it's a porter.

A - 1-finger tan head that dissipated rather quickly, but left a well-defined ring of foam around the edge and an archipelago of little foamy islands on the surface. Color is a deep brown that is ~75% opaque and very deep ruby red when held to a light.

S - Hops leap out of the bottle after the pour. Would swear it was an IPA if blindfolded. Nose is rich in hops. Smells like I'm in a pine forest in spring. And there's some grapefruit, too, which is likely the Chinook they list on the bottle. Some roasted malts and a touch of caramel underneath them.

T - Let's make an IPA with a roasty porter grain bill. Hops from start to finish. Well-roasted malts, espresso beans, dark chocolate, with burnt caramel providing some sweetness in the finish, but it's the bittering hops that really last.

M - Decently creamy without being full or thick. Good carbonation. Finish is hoppy and on the dry side, making it seem a tad thin.

D - A porter for someone who wants the hops of an IPA and almost, but not quite, the level of roasting that a full stout gets. This isn't what I'm looking for in a porter, but I know a lot of hopheads who would lap this stuff up like water at an oasis, especially in winter.
