A: Dark golden body with three fingers of white fluffy head. Leaves loads of thick lacing and has great retention.

S: Faint notes of caramel with massive hops aromas. Nothing else I can note (I am also somewhat sick).

T: Bitter hops and some breadiness ending with a touch of caramel malt. This being a wet hopped ale, I expected more floral and citrus flavours.

M: Light bodied with medium-high carbonation. Water like texture and leaves a very strong bitter aftertaste.

D: Very hoppy IPA, it taste good, but way to one dimensional to be something I'd have a lot of. This will be the second time Propeller has brewed this with Seaport.

Bottle from cjbmcdon, 500ml into a tulip. "Wet hopped Collaboration Ale" with Sea Level Brewing. Thanks Chris.

Pours and orange red, maybe some copper highlights in there; clear body. Beautiful white head, that's a bit soapier than it is dense, but retains exceptionally well with some sticky lace. Good carbonation in the body. Nose has some nice hop notes, subdued but still pleasant. Some orange, tangerine and maybe a bit of grapefruit come in. Some sweetness. A bit resiny and some pine. Taste is substantially bitter off the bat, impeding upon the profile. Some hops flavour similar to the nose comes through, some orange and other juicy citrus notes come through. A bit of pine again, and some modest malt sweetness, minimal hints of caramel. Medium light body, with moderate carbonation, bitterness detracts from the flavour profile I think and could've been toned down a bit. Still quite nice overall, a decent wet-hopped ale.
