Poured into a Rodenbach Grand Cru goblet just to be fancy. But the massive aroma concentrates nicely in the narrow mouth. Gardenias and mango with a whiff of onion. Golden amber brew with a lovely pile of foam. Sudsy mouthfeel.

Hugely malty with plenty of sweetness. Actually it's really sweet and bitter too. Papaya is the flavor plus orange marmalade with plenty of peel. Seriously bitter aftertaste but at least you get a lot of malt and remarkable aromatics in return. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Beach Front Liquor in San Clemente for the decent price of $8.55.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a two finger white head with great retention and lots of thick lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, piney and citrus hops with light dankness orange and tangerine. Flavor is caramel and light biscuit malt, piney and mildly citrus hops, light toffee, lemon and orange citrus. Finishes with caramel malt and lingering piney hops with a little citrus rind. Medium bodied with light creaminess. It's been a while since I picked up one Port's anniversary IPAs and I'm sorry now. This is a classic West Coast style IPA with rich piney and citrus hops and an assertive, full malt body. When I think of all the changes that IPAs have been through in the last five years, this is even more enjoyable knowing the classics keep their appeal. A fine imperial IPA.
