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.

Bottle. Cloudy, gold color. Floaties. Medium head and medium lace. Taste and aroma is spruce and citrus. I just donít 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.

Cloudy in the glass, not very complex, despite what the label says... Need to try their Hop Czar, hopefully itís 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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Sweet fruity, bready, caramelly, orange peel, butterscotch, lightly floral, and doughy aroma. Taste is grassy, dirty fruit peels, lemons, bready, malty, caramel, somewhat earthy, doughy, and weed with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Not very good, though it may be a bit old.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice aroma, fruity hops and a bit of pine. Light golden colour with a creamy white head, not clear. Tastes as it smells, but the flavours are more defined as citrus. Good mouthfeel, very smooth, nice bitterness. A very nice drinking IPA, but not too much depth at all.
