After opening the bottle I enjoy the first smell of this IPA each year, much like a fine wine. Each year the smell gets better and better. Like all others have said pours a golden / amber cloudy hue, with fresh hops floating in the pour. Per this IPA and many other from "Port Brewing" you must look on the bottom of the bottle to see if it has settled. If it has gently invert the bottle and get the ale to disturb the sentiment from it's resting spot. Really important to do this. I have found that this IPA imop is greatly enjoyable in of course a very frosted pint glass and to have the IPA itself at about 40 degrees F. All i n all this is a great brew that comes out at harvest time and if you love the Hops you will not be disappointed in the least. Cheers.

Massive head on first pour, but love the big time hops smell that comes with it. Color is a lightorange.

Aroma: Citrus and hoppy

Taste: Just like it smells.

Mouthfeel: Delicious

Overall - Just how I like it - loads of hops. ... I'd drive a few hours for this beer - actually, 68 minutes - it's in my top 6.

Hats off to Port, Keep the beers coming!

I love West Coast Style IPAs, In my mind the best beers in the world come out of the United States, as much as I love all kinds of beers, I think what the Americans are doing deserve to be looked at all one the world and acknowledged.

Appearance: hazy straw like quality, with a really, really pronounced head (poured into a Pint ale glass)

Smell: Very floral and a hint of citrus.
I recommend not chilling this beer too much, as the cooler it is, it seams to suppress the smell.

Taste: Lovely complex happiness, with grapefruit, and pine resins, It finishes bitter, but not overpowering and simply nice. The dryness is such that is does not leave one thirsty, other then wanting another beer.

Mouthfeel: full mouth feeling, medium body but not to carbonated.

Overall: Really a good tasty Fresh hopped beer. Would love to drink more of them!
