Deep golden in color, BridgePort IPA has an assertive and fragrant hop character from the two full pounds of Cascade, Chinook, Goldings, Crystal and Ahtanum hops in every barrel.

I gotta agree with Kyrz on this one. It’s an excellent IPA, it has both an aroma and strong taste of citrus. Thanks kyzr for sending this one my way - it made my day.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2003 re-rate: After a few more of these, I still find it a great beer, but I was young and needed time to think more about my score. I sometimes forget how damn good this beer is. The citrus that hits you is beyond heaven. With the finish as bitter pure joy. Great looking beer in a glass, with a great head that will last! A must try.

Bottle. A hazy golden color with a bubbly white head. A citrus hop aroma that is not overpowering. This IPA actually tries to balance the malt and hops and does a pretty good job, but it reminds me more of a Pale Ale. It is smooth and easy to drink without a strong bitter aftertaste.

Extremely clean and crisp. Light in body but heavy in taste. Similar to Stone with less assertiveness of hop.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 Citric hop aroma with a touch of bready malts. Slightly hazy gold, with a webby head. Interesting soft palate is the first noticeable trait, with a lingering piney and firmly bitter finish. Long hoppy aftertaste. Malts not really there, just enough to give it some semblance of balance.

OK, this beer falls short of the classic "IPA" style, it’s a bit too light and has a very fresh hop aroma that says "pale ale" when you first open it. That being said, it has a great bitter finish and is a wonderful beer for anyone that loves hops, all it’s lacking is some of the complex malty taste of a conditioned IPA.

Golden color looks nice but generally I like darker looking IPA. Nice palate though. Not my favorite IPA but definitely acceptable!

UPDATED: APR 11, 2003 One of my favorite IPAs. Great, round character and a perfect hop/malt balance. Good aroma and the citrusy, fruity tastes really come through. Attractive color in the glass too. There is an oily characteristic to the beer that really blends the malt and hops together.

I guess I like my IPA more over the edge. This is not a bad beer in its own right, but Diamond Knot or Bigtime’s Decade IPA is more to my liking.
