Brewsday Tuesday: Pipeline Porter
College football season arrived this Saturday in Tallahassee as Florida State took on Murray State. Despite having a sinus infection and being on antibiotics I decided to go to the game. While milling around in Lot 14 my buddy handed me a Pipeline Porter. Not wanting to be rude, I hunted down a bottle opener and cracked this one open. Okole maluna!
Name: Pipeline Porter
Brewed by: Kona Brewing Co.
Location: Kailua Kona, HI
Style/ABV: American Porter / 5.4%
Appearance: Pours a dark chocolate brown with a light tan head.
Smell: Semi-sweet coffee, cola and some light chocolate notes.
Taste: Opens with some chocolate notes before a punch of coffee arrives. I like it.
Mouthfeel: Medium with medium carbonation. Creamy.
Overall: This was a good American Porter and was very refreshing in the heat and humidity of North Florida. I really enjoyed the coffee notes in this beer, and would try it again.
Final Grade: B+
