32 oz growler filled at Yorktown Bev in Yorktown , NY

Pours darker almond amber, sturdy khaki head, lasts nicely. Then leaves decent looking high light sheeting and strands of lace.

I just get some malt and dusty hops on the nose.

Full bodied and fairly balance IPA....Maple malts provide a nice comfortable and tasty base, moderate and understated grainy hops add the intrigue and provide the interest. Smooth drinking and solid if unspectacular offering.

Port Jeff Brewing "Party Boat India Pale Ale" 7.7% ALC/VOL
12 oz. can, "06/04/14 IHC"... I'm assuming that's the canning date as it's quite fresh.
$2.70 @ Stinky Brklyn, 215 Smith St., Brooklyn, NY

Appearance: Hazy deep-amber / orange. Pillowy off-white head holds very well. Very good lacing. Seemingly moderate carbonation based on slow-rising tiny bubbles.

Aroma: Pungent, pineapple, pine, citrus, some malt. It could be brighter; and there is a kind of off-note that leaves it with a bit of a "Pine-Sol" character. Overall, still very good.

Flavor: More malt shows up, which is nice. Solid pine flavor backed by citrus fruit, pith, and pungency. The malt combines with the hops across the middle to deliver a sweet dollop of soft tangerine. Pungent and herbal in the finish. Solidly bitter. No sign of "Pine-Sol". Aggressively hoppy but somehow balanced - the moderate carbonation probably helps with that. Alcohol never shows, but you will feel it.

Mouthfeel: Wide, smooth maltiness with just a delicate tingle once it's been poured and warmed a little.

Overall: Credit for going to the level of intensity that the hops offer. It's a bit of a wild ride. Drinkability suffers, but that's a trade-off I'm willing to take. If you love hoppy beers this one should probably not be missed.

Can of Port Jeff Party Boat IPA cooled to about 50 F poured into a Pint glass 3/28/16.

The pour produced a huge head. The beer is a pleasing amber color. Fair lacing. Flavor is in the style of american IPAs, with a spicy/fruity hop character. I thought the beer was above average because of the blend of background malt, hops. Even the 7.7% alcohol works. (I think the alcohol is really too high for a "party boat" environment, but beer tastes fine on a March night at home.

Very citrus based. Extremely drinkable. Leaves amazing resiny taste in the back of mouth after drinking. It's like a Florida citrus garden French kissed me.

Pours a hazy golden honey color with a frothy off-white head, lots of big bubbles. 3.75

The aroma is of tropical fruit hops. Lots of pineapple and some pine and grapefruit rind. Light bready notes from the malt. 3.75

The taste is more bitter than the aroma. More pine and resin come through. Some pineapple and apricot. Big chalky aspirin finish. 3.75

The beer has a moderate body with semi-soft carbonation. Quite bitter and dry on the palate. Lingering bitterness. 3.5

A quite bitter and dank IPA. Its a bit boozy but it doesn't come through all that much. 3.7
