12oz bottle. The color was orange, clear, looked decent and surprisingly was not cloudy like Bridgeport IPA. The smell was stinky like an ashtray with hops in it, I did not care for it. The flavor was astringent and bitter but not hoppy in a good way. Overall, this was kind of disappointing and difficult to drink. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-12-2010 02:05:45

Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear orange color with a medium and foamy light beige head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Citrusy hops, pine and malt in the nose. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character, along with flavors of pine, fruity esters and sweet malt for balance. The finish is hoppy with a lingering grapefruit aftertaste. Above average overall.

12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent light copper, medium carbonation, one finger white head formed and kept me company, some lacing. Aroma of hops that have seen a better day (aged), some light grapefruit, and for some reason, baby vomit. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is there but it has a strange twang that comes in the middle (baby vomit transposed, ugh), finish is slightly acidic but leaves alot to be desired. I was expecting alot better from Bridgeport than this mediocre showing.

The body was pale bronze in color, and crowned with a three finger thick beige head. The aroma was earthy and herbal for the most part, with a bit of hay thrown in. The taste was quite dry and bitter, with some spicy notes as well. Not a lot of malt backbone, and relatively thin mouthfeel. Pretty easy to drink, but nondeScript.

Slightly hazy copper pour with a white head, decent retention and lacing. The aroma on this one is not good. Very stale, almost smells like dirty socks. Maybe a little pine, a little citrus, but mostly socks. On the palate it starts off with tingly carbonation, earthy notes, rotting leaves, which make me think that there are some euro ingredients, starts off mildly sweet which leads to dry bitter on the finish. I need something more than this... when I go for an imperial IPA I want more hops and more malt. More than 8% ABV. Bridgeport is like Metallica... they had their day, but can’t seem to keep up with the times...

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 3, 2010
Interesting brew...light hoppy aroma with notes of floral and pine with some subtle malt. Flavor is lacking on the hops in the front but not in the finish...very earthy and floral with some malt notes.

Pours a clear copper color with a white head. Aroma is caramel, fruity, orange, pear, and some floral notes. Flavor is toast, caramel, orange, pear, and a bitter floral finish.

Don’t go for it. Plenty of Imperial IPA’s out there. Doesn’t even weigh in that strong at a non-imperial 7.5%. Has a very thin lace with an aroma like gym socks and sour skittles. Pretty hue, but that’s about all I can compliment it for. Very thin mouthfeel and it attacks you with wrong flavors at wrong times. Smells bad, then tastes semi sweet and promising, then transfers into a tart and sour foul finish, leaving you quite unsatisfied.

Pours amber-copper with a frothy white head. Smells wonderful - sweet-bud-McSkunk hops, fresh and pine-appley, light pine/grass and sweet/light malt. Flavor is citrusy and bitter with a clean finish. A solid DIPA. Mine definitely wasn’t from an infected wart. Love those skank-a-dank hop cones.
