3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Subtle aroma for an ipa which may be due to age of bottle. Golden burn’t orange appearance. Mellow, slightly fruity taste that is taken over by a very strong bitter aftertaste. Decent ipa that could have been better with a fresher bottle perhaps.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Taking small sips, it’s pretty good. Has a citrus sweetness thats unusual for an IPA. However the finish is painful and completely ruins the flavor. Gets worse the more you drink.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Piney aroma, with some sweet malts mixed in there. Hazy orange pour with a nice head and good lacing. It’s an ok IPA, not really great.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a hazy orange colored body with a one finger white foamy head that dies and leaves some sticky lacing
The smell had some bitter hops up front, but slowly combines with the malts to balance as it warms.
The taste had a more bitter than sweet flavoring, but still good for the most part, slightly dry bitter aftertaste, definitely a very dry finish (this definitely has one of the driest finishes I’ve ever had in any DIPA).
On the palate, it sat at about a medium, semi-sessionable. Carbonation seems a bit under for the style, not bad to me.
Overall, definitely not the best DIPA on the market, but still worthy of eventually coming back to, not a disappointment, just not what I expected from Bridgeport.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Yellow-amber body with a light haze all-around, seemingly more than just a regular chill haze; soapy white head trifles around on top. Aroma with strong notes of earth, dirty hops, grass, toasted & buttered biscuits, & a mild dankness in the finish. Taste follows right along with a hop profile that edges on the English side; dirt, pale earthiness, weedy grass, lightly herbal, & finishing with notes of crisp yeast, toast, & crackers. Wets the palate nicely & leads into a mainly dry finish... Decent English-style Imperial IPA overall.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Poor after taste and finish for an IPA. Nice price for a six pack about 2.00 cheaper than other IPA's.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Soft floral hoppy aroma. Initially easy on the palate although this turns reasonably acidic and continues into the bitter aftertaste. Not great, but strong ABV and cheap price.
