Canned best by date of 02/03/18

Appearance - Pours somewhat clear and golden yellow in color with a white, finger width head. Displays fair retention before dissipating to a thin, consistent layer of suds that stretches across the surface. Fair lacing, with broken lines and small spotting.

Smell - Mild aroma, but comes across with lovely hints of orange, tangerine, pineapple and peach.

Taste - Follows the nose. Fair amount of hop notes as found in the nose, but lacks ideal strength, especially as it reaches mid-taste and into the finish; the flavor falls off fast, leaving a touch of citrusy pith in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with fair, bubbly carbonation. Drinks smooth but with a somewhat lifeless finish.

Overall - No longer the seasonal, fresh hop brew of yesteryear, High Tide was tweaked and is now offered in cans year round. I'm not sure what Port considers 'best by' on their IPAs (3 months? 6? Why I prefer a 'canned on' date vs 'best before'; let the consumer decide. I try not to buy IPAs outside 3 months) but as this tastes weak and has about a week left before it's no longer considered at it's best, I'd say this is a candidate for a re-review if I find a fresher batch.

Surprised that there's so few reviews for this. Pours a hazy, pale yellow with a minimal head that's gone in a flash, lots of floaties. Pleasant hop bitterness, citrusy with a hint of funk in the background - finishes pretty clean. All in all a pretty tasty IPA which leans more towards the NEIPA camp.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about twelve dollars. Have had one brew by this brewery, but it was a long time ago. Pretty solid IPA would get again.

Clear hay-colored body with white bubbly head. Aroma of citrus, lemon-scented cleaner, pine, light spearmint. Tastes of pine, lemon skin, citrus rind, light fruit, big, soapy bitterness. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
