A better than average IPA. Good and hoppy with a nice malty character. Certainly not my first choice, but will be drinking this one again for sure.

mmmmmm grapefruitty hoppiness. I tried this beer with akinm and we both agreed that this is an IPA that will please just about everybody.

Great thick white head atop a wonderful IPA. Pine city, but also rich and creamy and a bit malty. I wish I had a lot of these. Perfect with clam and shrimp linguine.

Clear orange color w/particles of yeast floating around. Moderate, lacey head. This is a great IPA! All hops with a subtle malt finish. This IPA is everything Redhook wants to be. Drink this if you want to know what an IPA tastes like.

This is what I like to taste in an IPA. Darker flavor, but not too much hops or bitterness. One of Bridgeport’s better beers.

A very satisfying IPA. There are a few that are better, but I will still drink this over most other micro IPA’s. Full copper color and a spice and citrus aroma that can’t be beat. What puts this one in a tier above the rest is that it has a good malt character to balance out the robust hop bitterness.

Nice and hoppy with that ’Indian’ flair. Slightly flowery boquet and a very subtle maltiness. Good. Better than the esteemed porter.

very nice golden amber color with lovely white head. very pretty beer. nice hop aroma but it is not overwhelming. great taste-hoppy but not bitter. hops are very citrusy, grapefruity. very smooth mouthfeel. a beer i will buy more of.

Interesting hop combination. Medium bitterness. Quite fruity and malty. Nice to see these guys getting wider distribution. Pretty good stuff.
