2016 vintage with 11% abv tasted in a 12 oz snifter from draft at The Vine on January 8, 2017. This is a really good "strong" double IPA without the usual high abv sting. There are no alcohol esters in the nose, nor is there any boozy burn on the tongue. Another winner from Port Brewing and highly recommended.

Draught at BeerHead in Pittsburgh. Lot's of honey and fruit syrup. Strong and bursting with fruit and a little bit of dankness. This was a nice sipper.

From Zombier. 6€ 66cl. In Teku glass. Playing Broken Sword 4. Very resinous. Reminds me my beloved Pseudosue but this one is just a tiny step below because its higher ABV, which is very well hidden but goes up to the head pretty quickly

Cloudy, orange - light amber color. The bartender needed to top the glass multiple times. Nearly a blanket for lace.

The smell starts with semisweet caramel and a light flowery hop.

Smooth beer with plenty of carbonation. The flavor starts a bit muddy with crystal malt flavors blended with a hop spice. Decently balanced. The finish becomes very bitter with a strong essence of alcohol with a burn in the throat. Long aftertaste.

Happy 10th Anniversary to Port! This year's version clocks in at 11%

L - Bronze, with little clarity, 1 finger of head. Gorgeous IPA

S - Perfect blend of citrus and bitter hops. Oranges, pineapple, deliciousness

T - Huge hop explosion in your mouth, citrus and bitterness. Slight malty backbone, but clearly the hops dominate here. Tasty as hell!

F - Medium body, well carbonated.

O - What an incredibly smooth DIPA at 11%, with no lingering alcohol haze, super tasty, and so drinkable. About as good an example of a perfect West Coast IPA IMO.
