3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, acquired from friend visiting Seattle, poured into 4oz taster glass with a one-finger, rocky, white head. Medium gold color, hazy from bottle conditioning, with carbonation on the lighter side. However, the lighter body did not make it feel as flat if the OG were higher. Has many of the characteristics of an English IPA, so the "kick me in the nuts" hopheads will be disappointed. Different, though, in that the Cascade & Chinook give it a fruity and citrus overtone uncharacteristic of the UK IPAs. I found this to be a pleasant, flavorful session IPA.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A: ruddy orange with a phase of white foam which dissipates quickly to a central cap. spotty lace.
S: some spicy hops, some catty hops, some english malts. meh.
T: Bitter and catty for me. some grapefruit and tartness. Malts are simple and biscuity.
M: Medium bodied with hi carb. semi dry finish.
O: Meh. I remember drinking a substantial amount of this, ice cold, when I first got into IPA’s. This does not serve memory accordingly.
Serving type: bottle

Bottle. Cloudy, gold color. Floaties. Medium head and medium lace. Taste and aroma is spruce and citrus. I just don’t understand why there are so many IPAs.

Bottle . Hazy orange. Good white head that leaves good lacing. Pleasantly sweet and yeasty for an ipa. Great balance of pine, floral, and sweet. Really a pleasant surprise.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy in the glass, not very complex, despite what the label says... Need to try their Hop Czar, hopefully it’s more hoppy than this

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts, honey, caramel, touch of hops. Light bitter flavour, malts, light grapefruit. Bitter finish, honey, hops, malts and a hint of coffee. Feels like this one is somewhat aged, but unfortunately no bottling or Best Before date can be found on the bottle.
(From 66cL bottle shared @ decadent symmetry tasting, Wilrijk. With thanks to my friend Pasmans for bringing the bottle for me)

50 IBU. Good hoppy IPA. Along with their double red ale, this is the best of Bridgeport. Very well crafted IPA
