Hop 15 by Port Brewing Company
Pours a dark golden color with a foamy, fluffy white head and some lacing. Full of sediment, very chewy looking. Not your typical looking clear IPA. See the picture below.
Nose is citrus, orange, lemons, grapefruit. Maybe some pine.
Taste is very good. Hops, caramelized malts, citrus. As mentioned, lots of sediment. Really a chewy brew (in a good way). Citrus and hops linger but no bitter aftertaste.
Overall a good imperial IPA. Very drinkable, but not so much a hop head brew. Tons of sediment in it if you like that kind of thing. On a scale of 1 - 10, I'd give it an 7.
