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.

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.

Bottle. Nose has some stale hop elements to it as well as some earthiness. Taste is bitter with a hint of sweetness in the finish. Meh.

Theydon_Bois (16006) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2015
Keg at the brewpub, PDX, 09/11/14. Very lightly hazed golden with a decent off white covering. Nose is earthy hops, mineral rinse, bitter citric peel, grapefruit. Taste comprises citric pith, grapefruit, bitter orange, light spice, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a light hop spattering. Ok IPA.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is oxidized raisin caramel with notes of hops and malt. No too fresh anymore I guess. Flavour is better but still old.

Unlike more herbal fresh hop beers this one on draft tastes like orange juice. One dimensional and sweet but not terrible.

Syzzer (632) - Oregon, USA - NOV 7, 2013
On tap @ all stars. Overall good IPA, easy to drink. Light transparent brown. Good white creamy head that reduces but is more than just a ring. Moderate bitterness, decent citrus hops. 8.6 bd

BVery (9189) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Tap at Haymarket. Very non-aggressive IPA - some floral hop but it’s far from bold. Decent enough but far from awesome.

chinchill (3888) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2012
undated 22oz bottle served in a New Glarus pint glass in April 2012. Pours with a medium, rather creamy looking bone-colored head. The beer itself is slightly hazy golden amber. Notable and rather chunky sediment remained in the bottle after the initial pour. Lots of sticky lacing on the glass. Smells hoppy with a lot of citrus and some floral, herbal and earthy elements. Presages a taste that will be both sweet and tart. Marred by a bit of dankness. Taste: more malt than is common for style, making for a more balanced mix of sweet malts and bitter hops. A hit of tangy hops and/or yeast towards finish, followed by an earthy and bitter (grapefruit) aftertaste from the hops. M: nicely carbonated; medium body; rather dry finish. O: this unfiltered Imp. IPA has a homebrew (not that that is a bad thing) look and taste, and a very fine mouthfeel.
