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.

12 oz bottle pours and amber/red color with a nice tan head. Aromas of malt, light floral. Medium mouthfeel, but the flavors don’t mix as well asi they could. A little disappointing

BK7 (720) - Turner, Oregon, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle. Big caramel malt taste with a hint of something roasted and bitter at the end. Easy to drink with a unique taste.

highibus (706) - Vail, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2011
Pours deep red with odd white head. Malty aroma little hops. Very biscuity flavor slight malt sweetness and a dank hop finish. Not clean at all. Not bad but just not what I am looking for. Lingering dankness and nothing else.

Bule (690) - California, USA - MAR 28, 2013
On tap at Bridgeport in Portland. Pours a red color with not much head. Malty flavors and some strong hop flavors.

pkbites (673) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Great look, but more orange than red. Cookie dough aroma with less hops than desired. Good brew. Good slam.

mrmartin (655) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2011
copper pour. Malty nose with fruit notes. Roasty malt gives way to some hoppy/rye bitterness but finishes very mild. Meh. Not a good example of what Bridgeport is capable of.

osu97gp (646) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Pours a clear orange red with small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, candy, and very light floral hops. Flavor of malts and a ton of grassy and citrus hops. Decent.

pintocb (643) - Darsville, Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Red color.....duh. Aroma is caramel and pine. It’s a bit flat, and the body is thin like its been puking up dinner for a modeling job.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Pours a hazy reddish amber with a short lived head. Aroma is dominated by hops with a little soapiness. Flavor is an excellent balance of floral hops and roasted malts. Very easy to drink. Would make a superb session beer...but watch out for the ABV! This would be great with spicy Indian or South American foods to mellow out the heat. Cheers!
