3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper pour with a very large tan head. Very malty aroma with some woodsy notes. Medium bodied and carbonation. Malt forward flavor but quickly becomes pretty hoppy, strong and bitter. Some toasted malt/oak seems to come out towards the finish. Seems to have all the pieces there but itís a bit disjointed, maybe a bit too much grapefruit for the malt profile?

355ml bottle. Pours a hazy ruby chestnut, with a medium off-white head, which lasts well, and leaves decent lacing. Rich toffee malt mixes with pine resin and floral hops in the aroma. Strong pine needle and resin hops up front lead into bitter grapefruit. This is smoothed out by toffee malt in the mid-palate, with some nutty flavours coming through towards the finish, which has some resurgent grapefruit hops, and leaves a nicely bitter aftertaste. This is a nice, hoppy red ale, with a deft balance between potent hops and smooth, supple malt.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Picked this up Monday night at the COOP.
Poured into my Payette Black Friday mini goblet.. 1/2" white head dies quickly leaving no cap and no lacing... the brew is very clear amber.
Nose shows toasty malts and hints of caramel with some grassy/herbal hoppiness.
A little bitterness up front.. toasty malt essence in the middle with a lite caramel element... drier than I would have guessed by the nose... Hops mirror the aroma but are certainly balanced, surprisingly so, given the "triple hopped" moniker :-)
The body is lite/medium with good carbonation.
Nice beer... I should give Bridgeport more attention.

Caramel, resin, peach aromas. khaki head on clear amber. good blance of weight and fizz in the moth, aromatic. Hops win the the tussle just barely, with some pine, okay tang, a slightly overcooked caramel. balanced bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours reddish orange or amber. Not much of a foam. Nose is of caramel malt and mild but plentiful hops. Tastes bitter. Plenty of hops here. Easy drinking as long as your a hops person. The body is kind of lacking. Just a lot of hoppy bitterness. I actually like this beer though, so a few extra points from me. Not much in the way of mass appeal or complexity though.

Bottle pours a dense dark red color with fine-bubble white head. Hoppy aroma and flavor. Medium body with coarse texture mouthfeel. Big hop flavor balance. Very filling hoppy ale. OKAY.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours rusty red-orange with a moderate sized, creamy off-white head. Aroma of orange, caramel, perfumey hops, slight rubbing alcohol, and pine. Eh. The flavor starts seemingly malty with caramel, and toast but quickly becomes astringent with pine, orange, and medicine. The bitterness becomes a bit strange on the finish and seems even more chemical with some pine and grapefruit but mainly its about astringency, cough medicine and rubbing alcohol. Medium bodied at first, but feels lacking and thin by the time the finish comes around. How the hell did this become so weird?

Itís the expected color and has a big bubbly head. Yeasty nose. Pretty mild unremarkable taste. Not bad but not good either.
