Port Brewing Hop-15 Ale

This double IPA claims to mix 15 different hops every 15 minutes to the boil; hence the name. Unfortunately, they don't give out the names of all the hops used, but you can gather a few in there. No doubt about it being a double IPA as both the hops and alcohol content speak for itself in that department. Port Brewing seems to love the simcoe hop, as do I, and you can detect it with a nice citrus flavor that rears its head at the front and back ends. There's also a very nice sweet malt that is mixed well into the overall palette giving the body a bright, but not overwhelming flavor. Very nicely done; Port Brewing continues to impress me with their brews.
