2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Plonk. Hop dominated aroma, grapefruit, pine, good resiny bitterness, but not balanced by malt. Cloying in the back of mouth, not unpleasant but not great either.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy gold. Persistent, thick white head. Aroma of grass, sugar, citrus zest. Taste is juicy,assertively bitter without being overwhelming. Orange, lemon, hints of lime. Grassy, bitter finish. Crisp, clean. Lower end of the DIPA abv range, not much booze to muddle things.

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 burnít 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, itís 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.

Piney aroma, with some sweet malts mixed in there. Hazy orange pour with a nice head and good lacing. Itís 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 Iíve 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
