Bomber. Cloudy dark amber/orange body. Large frothy, off-white head. Pleasant aroma, if not all that complex, of orange, flowers, toffee and toasted grain. Notes of pine and resin emerge as the beer warms. The flavor is moderately sweet and moderately bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Solid, fairly well balanced double IPA.

Cloudy deep amber with a tight-bubbled head. Medium body. Cozy alcohol. Oranges, toast, toffee, burnt molasses, grass and pine. Cakey, too. Possibly from the yeast. Good stuff.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 8, 2009
2009 Bottle - Pours a murky golden brown with a medium white head...aroma is biting hop resin, citrus and some dry malt...flavour is similar, none too complex but a solid DIPA, tart with a nice lingering bitterness...

aroma is almost non existence which is strange for a double. nice color full and golden. taste is very sweet with a little piney hop and booze finish. pretty much a very basic double ipa not too much going on here. not bad not good. expected more from bridgeport. better than those damn colorado beers, bunch of assholes, i will fight them, i swear. i love you megan. lets go to bed

Bomber. Snifter. Underwhelmed. Cloudy orange liquid, thin head, Aroma is soap and sour. Flavor holds in the front of your mouth, but quickly fades to bitterness when it hits the throat. Not a DIPA palate. Thin, carbonated. I’d drink it again, but wouldn’t pay $4.50 for it. Better than Corona!

Reid (1855) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - APR 26, 2009
Warning, i saw some huge pieces of "goo" in ths bottle. Appearance..hazy orange with lots of sediment floating around, large frothy loff white head. Aroma..garlic and onions..really some soap lemon. Taste is not as bad as the aroma but pretty weak for a DIPA..some lemony hop. Watery palate. Drain pour I believe this (hope) it is bad. Im pissed..my worst from Bridgeport ever.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - APR 26, 2009
Bomber. Poured burnished copper with thick white head. Enormous citrus and hop aroma, with pine and floral notes. Big farking hop flavour, pine nut, sour lemon, naartjie and a malt fringe. Lingering, lasting hop finish, I mark it down a tiny bit, because there was an unpleasant oily tinge to the finish

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2009
woohoo, my first beer this year. Rewarding myself for losing 20lbs.... Pours a clear copper with a massive beige head.mmmmm, 4 months between IIPA’s is waaaay to long. And this has been in my fridge that long calling out to me every time i open the door lol... Nose is hops, all hops..some grassyiness and orange/fruit. My palette has changed, and this is mass bitter..but it is all good. It is wondrous piney, grapefruit, orange rind explosion of hoppiness. Finish is a bit metallic. Body is medium. I bow to the Hop Czar. May his reign be long!

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2009
22oz bottle from Market of Choice. Amber/orange pour with a big white head. Heavily floral aroma with a slight bit of citrus at the back. Hugely bitter pine aroma flavor with very little balance and a slight bit of lemony flavor as well. Not bad, but a little too much bitterness even for me.

Bottle from DuffmanSW tasting bash. Rich orangish color with minimal head. Very aromatic and sweet smelling. Smooth yet piny after taste. Good balance of hops.
