Port Brewing High Tide (Bottle) 6,5%
This beer was part of a news release at Systembolaget a couple of months ago. It cost 89 SEK and according to www.systembolaget.se there are still bottles available but it is probably just a miss count on their behalf as usual.
A pale yellow liquid with just a little bit of haze with a small white foam. The last couple of cl was allot more hazy due to some sediment on the bottom.
Strong smell of grapefruit, hops, grass, fruity, passion fruit.
Strong taste with lots of hops, also grapefruit, fruits, grass and passion fruit. High bitterness and long aftertaste.
Smooth mouthfeel that wasn’t very harsh. Medium body.
I enjoyed this beer, a nice american style IPA fresh with lots of hops both grassy, fruity and a very noticeable grapefruit flavor. With a very high bitterness if that is what you fancy. I think this would work great on a hot summer day. If I where to combine this with food I would choose a tasty and salty hard cheese.
