This is possibly the best single IPA I have had. Color is light orange due to light malting, but the aromas are exceptionally complex. Ballast Sculpin seems more restrained, Stone IPA less intense, but those are the two I would compare. The hops intensity of Wipeout seems higher than its 78 IBU rating, almost like a lightly malted double IPA such as Pliny the Elder.

This is it! A lighter touch of the classic West Coast IPA, something that would meet your summer needs on the San Diego beach of SoCal. Feels like being wiped out by a huge wave, perhaps even a bit on the sessionable side that is the reason why. It is a very well made IPA with a bit drier finish and lighter body, that's all, with a citrusy or rather earthy, piney smell, feels amazing.
Port Brewing simply cannot do wrong. For me, they stand with the elite brewers of California like Sierra or Stone, all they have done so far turned to gold. This is no exception, enjoy it for what it is.

This truly is one of my favorites...nice look with a gorgeous frothy iceberg head that sticks around till you last chug..nice hop bite up front with a blend of tropical fruits mid palate that blends very nice then more hop bitterness and maltiness on the back end...I have nothing negative to say about this beer it just works in every way..
