Port Brewing -- High tide Fresh Hop IPA
The flavor is instantly bitter, with a mild sweetness that backs up the acerbic hops. Quite intense, and it grows far more rough as it warms to room temp. The flavors keep growing, and that freshness is strong. The finish is dry, packed with mango and pineapple. The grassy undertone is odd, almost distracting.
Buy if: you want an incredibly fresh but bitter IPA.
Overall: I enjoyed the freshness, but the finish is underwhelming and almost distracting. It is like the Star Trek remake: great for the first half, lousy in the second.
3 out of 5.
