This year’s Hop Harvest features fresh Centennial hops from third-generation, family-owned Goschie Farms in Silverton, Ore. Newly named brewmaster Jeff Edgerton and family recently drove to the farm with a utility trailer and burlap bags, and brought back 400 pounds of fresh Centennial hops. Within an hour, crews cut open the sacks and hops were blended with the base beer that had been prepared in advance and cooled to prevent cooking off the natural citrus and floral notes of the hops. Almost two weeks later, brewers lightly filtered the beer and filled kegs and 22-oz bottles with this farm-fresh brew.

22 oz bottle. Hazy orange with a dense, creamy off white head. Aroma of citrus, honey, pine, flowers and some hay. The flavor has some bitterness up front then the sweetness from the malt comes in, there is a zesty lemony finish. Medium body with average carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Overall a very good IPA, I’m starting to think that the whole wet hop thing is a gimmick though.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Lightly grain and sweet malty nose - light pale, bread, honey notes plus juicy citrus, floral, and lightly leafy hops. Pours hazy golden with a nice frothy head and lace. Flavors of bread, biscuit, honey malts, light sweetness. Lots of fresh citrus and floral notes. Fruity and refreshing, solid hop flavors and crispness. A very nice fresh hop IPA with high drinkability.

Very yummy, just a very nice rendering of a very good beer-lover’s style. Sticky-syrupy texture with thick semi-sweet hop flavor and wonderful balance. Dangerously drinkable.

neepsntatties (1420) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Had a bottle of this when it hit the Portland, OR market. Colour... cloudy orange-gold with a thick head. Nose... moderate hops with some floral accents. Palate... a burst of wet hops, hints of white sugar sirop, alpha-like hops, yeast notes and a delightful apple skin finish.

22 oz bomber from QFC on Mercer (Seattle). Pours a deep golden honey color with slight red/brown hue and a frothy white head. The nose is pine, grass, black pepper, light spinach, floral hops, and a sweet honey/caramel malt. The taste is pine, grass, and spinach initially and transitions into some slight pepper, floral hops, and slightly bitter grapefruit, which finishes with a delicious, slightly sweet caramel malt and a dry piney hop aftertaste. Great seasonal ipa. I love the fresh hop taste.

At last, after twenty six years, Bridgeport has come up with a product I’d definitely buy again. Very floral with notes of cedar, black pepper, orange, grapefruit, a hint of coriander, and a long, powerful finish. The blurb on the label claims "From field to brew in one hour" referring to the Centennial hops, and it tastes like that. This beer might be overdone (especially at only 6.56% abv), but because it’s a Bridgeport ale (big flavor has never been their strong suit), the flavor remains perfectly restrained and refreshing.

Pint (2) at the brewpub - Very nice floral aroma with a hint of orange peel. Tastes like summer rolling into fall. It has a very fresh feel to it. I love wet hopped beer!
