high tide in the glass

last week AP and I swung by the local bevmo while we were down in socal.  one of the better finds there was port brewing’s high tide fresh hop IPA.

  • high tide wasn’t as subtle as other fresh hop beers I have tried recently-  it had a strong citrusy hop aroma and strong resiny bitterness (amarillo pellet hops are used as an early addition, and fresh centennial and chinook are used as later additions and for dry-hopping).
  • that isn’t to say that this beer wasn’t great – it definitely had a lot more hop flavor than what I was used to with fresh hop beers (including my own fresh hop beer).
  • overall, I would say this beer is the hop-head’s answer to fresh hop beers, and would definitely stand out next to other fresh hop offerings (as demonstrated over at toronado’s wet hop night a while back).
