Port Townsend's taps seem to run on low pressure, and most of their IPAs (they have three or four now) pour with little to no head. I received my pint from the barmistress Roxanne full to the brim with just a little eggshell scum across the top; The pint was a hazy amber, with a little carbonation of note.

The smell is certainly hoppy - of PTB's beers, this is probably the closest to a double IPA, but it's not - the abv is low, and it just doesn't pack a DIPA wallop. Very floral and grapefruity hops dominate the nose.

Gritty, floral, citrusy hops are also dominant in the taste - they push the malts all the way to the back, making them almost impossible to taste. (A back to back tasting between the Dry-Hopped and the Hop Diggity shows that this is far hoppier, despite the fact that Hop Diggity is dry-hopped as well - the Hop Diggity has a lot more buttery caramel malt)

Mouthfeel is oily but smooth, with some carbonation present. Unobtrusive, easy to drink.

A nicely sessionable IPA (Hop Diggity might be a bit moreso). I backed this up with two pints of Porter and rather enjoyed my stay in the tasting room.

Appearance is a hazy golden with a thin head. Smell of citrus and the floral hops dominate. Taste is a bit thin on the malt with a good amount of hop and grapefruit bitter. Mouthfeel on the whole seems a bit thin which I quess makes for a niclely hopped easy drinker, but I tend to like a little more body in my IPAs.
