COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a clear amber with a rough, off-white head. Caramel and perfumy hops in the nose. Quite full-bodied, plenty of caramel and a fine and slightly herbal hoppiness while the finish is intensely bitter. Quite delicious. 220611

Bottle pours a hazy copper/red with atiny off white head. Scent is fruits, caramel and earthy. Taste is sweet with an earthy bitter finish. Want to like it, but there are notes in the taste that I donít care for...hard to describe,

djd07 (3699) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a medium creamy beige head that lasts awhile that leaves sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt with caramel and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a rye malt and light hoppy finish. Hides the alcohol well, a good American strong ale from Bridgeport.

Nikiel (878) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 5, 2011
On tap with Jeff at Bridgeport. Pours red with off-white foam. Smells sweet. Tastes sweet with a light caramel and enough bitterness to keep me interested. Seems like a sweet ESB. Itís one of the better double reds Iíve had (not that that says much...)

heemer77 (5104) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Deep garnet colored brew from the bottle with a thin light kahki head. The nose has lots of cotton candy along with some caramel. There is also a little bit of bubblegum and apples. The taste is dry apple core with old caramel. There is also some wood and glue in the finish. A little bit of plastic. Bleh.
