KINGPIN is a full-flavored, red-colored ale that uses a rarely-grown Willamette Valley Hop varietal known as Liberty Hops from fourth generation hop farmer John Annen of Annen Bros. Farm in Silverton, Oregon. Jeff and his team of brewers also used rye and caramel malt leading to a unique flavor profile; triple-hopped for bitter aroma and a unique dry-hopped character.

Bottle. Triple hopped, double red sounds a little gimmicky, but coming from Bridgeport it was worth a taking a flyer on. Very attractive deep copper with about a half-finger of tan head that hangs around throughout. Superb lacing. Nose isn’t unpleasant but underwhelming for a triple hop. Taste is remarkably crisp and clean for a red and finishes with a nice little kick. One of my favorites of this style. The nicely cloaked 7.5% abv is a bonus.

JLLSU (238) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
12oz bottle---->tulip. A little on the lighter side of amber, verging on orange with a thin white head and tiny lace. Smells of cheap piney caramel and nail polish remover. Tastes like sweet onion juice with a floral hop bite in the end. Medium body with very little carbonation. This is a total disappointment.

355ml bottle from Warners at the Bay Bottle Shop. This is my first beer from Bridgeport and it’s a cracker. Strong bronzed copper colour with a low level layer of foam. Lots of caramel, toffee and malt in the aroma and it really fills the nose. Full flavoured and very malty with a great flavour that hits all parts of the mouth.

Bottle. Got this on a whim in a create your own sixer. I haven’t liked other triple hopped beers but there is something about this double red that just makes it work. I recommend this if you enjoy a good but a little different kind of beer.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2013
12 oz Bottle. Pours a dark red-copper with a half finger of tan head. Settles quickly with a little lacing. Aroma is malty, nutty. Flavor is malty up front, fading into nutty, slightly fruity tones. Moderate carbonation and medium-light body. Crisp, light, drinkable. A pretty solid brew.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottled. Poured cloudy, medium orange with a short, tight-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up pineapple and redder fruits over a caramel and nutty base.. the fruit worked the hardest, and it was solid. The flavor found similar stuff.. lightly sour and somewhat bitter pineapple and fruity notes over caramel and some apricot meat.. finished grainy and bitter, with a little alcohol warmth. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. it lost focus somewhere around the middle.. just OK overall.

Rangi (670) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 3, 2013
Poors a superb ready brown, aroma of citrus and sweet malts. NicE flavours of sweet, toasty almost roastie malts balanced by a nice bitterness thanks to some good hop additions. Hop flavour is interesting. Not a favourite but pretty solid and interesting.

Purchased at a neighborhood liquor store, the 6pack was mine, and was moderately priced. Pours a gorgeous dark orange. Had a head that was fluffy and off-white, about a fingernail measured after I let it alone for a while. Smells of American and European hops, canola oil, vitamins, soap, Bible paper, wheat grain and lactose. Tastes of generic foreign hops, wood varnish, onions, sausage fat, sweat, sea salt, and rust. Ends salty with a tinge of booze and yeast.
