3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I first tried Bridgeport ales at their brewery in early 1993while on a business trip to Portland. I was impressed with the selection and the lively scene at the brewpub, and would love to go back some day. On to the review.
Pours a cloudy pale amber with a short head. Nose of citrus fruit, and a slightly herbaceous taste, with a hint of lemon. Refreshing, and moderate in alcohol. A fine IPA, although not as powerful as many others.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Cloudy burnt gold, huge white head,
N: Big citrus - especially grapefruit, peppercorns, cherry taffy, a bit of onion, biscuit, very grassy and floral.
T: Moderately bitter, lightly sweet.
M: Medium body, creamy carbonation, no alcohol presence.
O: A mostly bland IPA. The hops aren’t as assertive as the label would like to believe, and this is more tick than an enjoyable drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(BridgePort IPA) Bottle 355 ml at home, thanks to vipinvelp, cheers Werner! Served into a tulip, ABV 5.5%
Pours a golden orange coloured beer, a bit cloudy, with a good sized white head on top, thick and with very good retention. Medium lacing on the glass.
Aroma is moderate hoppy, some faint floral notes too, sugar and oranges.
Taste also of oranges, pine, lemon leaves, quite bitter.
Medium thin body, carbonation on good levels, very dry.
Okay I guess.

Opaque golden, white lacing foem head. Hoppy aroma, that is OK, but not so nice taste. Bitterness, but also some barnyard. (Houston 201501)

This beer was good and light on the ipa style. It was not so worried about the hops but the flavor to compliment these hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange amber with a foamy off white head. Citrus and pine aroma that is orange dominated. Sweet caramel malt aromas that are hugely reflected in the flavour. A very pronounced malt profile, which is different to many of the dry IPA?s that I?ve had lately. Flavour is a balance of orange marmalade, toffee and stonefruit with some lingering hop bitterness. A little sweet for my taste, but that?s my personal taste. Medium carbed and full bodied. I would have again
