Port Brewing High Tide IPA.... is gooood

It's always nice to get an IPA that smacks you upside with some nice bitter hops. That's what High Tide does. It's got like a bitter fruit zest thing going on as well as a little earthiness in those hops. Finishes pretty aggressive, which we want in our IPA's.

I was at Pizza Port in Carlsbad last weekend. I do believe I had some of this brew. Very hoppy but very tasty.

Very hoppy AND very tasty... definitely.

This is a very good IPA. I had two last weekend, over two nights, and was sort of wondering what all the hype was about. I had one with dinner tonight and it was excellent, justifying the hype. I like the initial citrus blast. I tried to think of a description of that "little earthiness." The adjective that kept popping in my head was "humid," which is weird, but I could not escape the association. I think earthiness is better.
