TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Pours a deep hazy orange with a medium bubbly off white head that laced. Aroma of orange, floral hop notes and caramel candies. Flavor of floral, piney and grapefruit hop notes. Some of the caramel malt is there but not as heavy as it was in the nose. Drys out nicely...barely a double ipa at 7.5%

Capa (2425) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Medium orange with a tall pillowy head. Heavy malts over this bitter orange and citrus hopped DIPA. Some light floral notes. A bit sweet, fruity, and bitter. A slightly off-putting finish, however, makes this not one I’ll be coming back to very often. Still, decent enough.

Bottled. Cloudy copper. Has a upfront hop taste. Grassy piney hops. After a couple drinks a orangy flavor pops out but mostly the grassy hops. Decent

BVery (8686) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2015
Tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy light orange pour with a clingy white head. Citrus rind, bitter. A little underflavored and under-aroma’ed for big IPAs here in 2015 - this one needs a new coat of paint.

Bottle. A: Cloudy orange with an off-white head. N: Pineapple, orange syrup, pine, cracker, cracked peppercorn, earth, leaves, some coriander and floral elements. Hefty minerality. T: Goodly bitter and big sweetness. Well balanced. M: Medium body, very dry, prickly carbonation, no alcohol. O: Decent IIPA. Very fruity and dry. A bit on the artesian well side, though.

DenverLogan (961) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2015
From a 12 oz bottle into a Saxo stem glass. Pours apricot gold with head and lace. Aroma of straw hops and malts. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of bitter field herbs, roots, straw hops, hay, grains, slight malts. Overall big, bold, bitter.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
On tap @ Bridgeport. Clear orange colored beer with a dense white head. Fresh grass clippings and huge weed nose. A bit of the sweet caramel malt thing coming through. Maybe some apple, which I could do without. The bitterness is really intense. A ton of grass, citrus rind, pine, and weed. A little too much for me.

Scoobyluvshub (33) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Poured from bottle. Hazy amber, aroma was dank, skunky, light citrus. The taste was terrible imo, skunky, dank, bitter, citrus, earthy. Fairly tough on the palate. Definitely not for me.

foyle (348) - Wyoming, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: pours a 2" off white fluffy head that drops very slowly with abundant lacing. Color is cloudy golden-orange with some sediment in suspension and mild streaming carbonation. Aroma: pine, citrus, and pineapple dominate the white bread dough backbone. Mouthfeel: medium a bit chewy & sticky with a somewhat dry and astringent finish. Flavor: bitter citrus rind dominates from start to finish with some pine and tangerine notes. Malt is less pronounced than I expected with just enough sweetness to be noticeable. Overall: very good.

Darkmagus82 (2091) - - MAY 18, 2015
Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head fades relatively quickly leaving just a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a fruity smell with lots of tropical fruits and citrus aromas. Along with these aromas comes some smells of a melon as well as some aromas of a more modest grassy and grapefruit hop smell. Overall quite sweet and delicious. Taste – The taste begins with a bready flavor mixed with some nice grapefruit hop and a little bit of pine as well. As the taste advances, more and more bitter pine hop come to the tongue, bringing a bit of a resinous taste to the beer. All the while, sweeter flavors accompany the hop tastes, with some tropical and citrus sweet tastes, as well as a bit of a candied sugar comes to the tongue. Some hay and grass and an increase in the pine and some earth come at the very end, leaving one with a rather pleasant and smooth, but nicely hopped and decently sweeter flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. The thicker and creamier feel are fantastic for the brew and make for one easy drinking and flavorful double IPA. Overall – This was another rather enjoyable brew by Bridgeport. I think many of their stronger (abv.) they do are rather underrated. They are flavorful and balanced, all while hiding much of the abv. and keeping a great drinkability.
