A A nice golden, slightly orange body with a trail of carbonation lining the glass--pretty decent amount of lacing and head retention.
S Strong citra and simcoe hops on the nose--fruit with some lemon zest and just a hint of booze. A little bit of floral aromas on the backend.
T Fair amount of citrus in this one--the citra hope profile is pretty big in this; however, there is also another hop in here (maybe amarillo?) that rounds that out with a bit of floral/herbiness that cuts away from the lemony orangey front of this beer. The alcohol and the floral finish cleans the palate to a decent extent, but it sort of kills the citrus profile. I would prefer this to have a little less booze.
M Very drinkable beer--it's a bit slippery, which is surprising considering the level of carbonation.
O This is a decent beer from Port, though I prefer their Mongo.

This was one of the guest drafts at the Three Floyds Taproom in Muenster, IN. Not sure if this was a single or double IPA. It had a wonderful orange color and fresh hoppy aroma. Excellent beer....it held up nicely with the Three Floyds lineup which was outstanding as well. Similar to the Mongo and the other Port IPA's. Hope they continue to brew this style.
