3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very pale straw coloured brew. The aroma is loaded with bright lemony/noble hops. A fairly assertive bitterness but with a lot of noble spiciness. Hopped to IPA levels it seems like with a lot of lingering bitterness. The beer also has a very lean malt component. A touch of pepper and a little bit of alcoholic heat as well. This seems to add to the perception of dryness though, so thatís good. Has a little bit of high gravity pale malt flavour which is tough to describe but has a slight honeyed character. A touch of acetaldehyde but itís pretty restrained. Nice brew really

Hop Harvest (2011)
Sampled on 4/20/2012.This India Pale Ale pours medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, citrusy and hoppy. A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and herbal. Decent carbonation. Nicely balanced IPA, especially for a Pacific Northwest IPA. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Not as hoppy as I would have liked, given "hop" is in the name, but wasnít bad compared to all the beer Iíve had. It is a little less hoppy for a "hoppy" beer, but still pleasant to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from City Beer. Pours cloudy amber with a disappearing off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor that is overwhelmed by dry hop bitterness. Not very balanced and a bit thin, but hopheads will probably like this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amber, thin white head. Aroma I must say is very interesting. Not just the standard pine/citrus aromas. This is sweeter, with cannabis notes (gotta be honest), orange and lemon notes, hard candy and bubble gum. An interesting sweet hoppy beer.

So Bridgeport IPA is in my top 3 favorite beers for its the citrus infused hops and the easy drinkability. This beer is an amped up version of the standard IPA. Very citrusy, a great woodsy aroma, a thick cloudy yellowish haze...mmmm. The malts and hops are well balanced and leave a clean aftertaste for an Imperial IPA. A keeper for sure.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty, hoppy aroma is not strong but still promising. It pours a clear, fizzy amber with a decent eggshell-white head. Malty aroma has a strong hoppy overtone and hints of green wood and fruit. Was that a whisper of banana? Firm texture has plenty of fizz and sass, leaving a woody, hoppy, slightly bitter finish. Overall, if not outstanding, still a decent brewski.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I just bought this bottle so I hope itís a 2011 because there is not a date on the label.
Poured into a tulip glass. Cloudy orange color with a half-finger of head, short retention but good lacing.
It has a musty smell, not very appealing. It has the faintest lemon smell.
The taste is nice and clean. Moderately bitter and hoppy throughout. No other real flavors coming through. Itís nice all the same.
Crisp texture. Moderate carbonation and medium bodied.
A straight up IPA. The smell was off, hopefully itís not widespread.
