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 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.

Deep amber/red moderate cloudy. Nice lacing. Sips full with slight caramel and hop flavor. Nicely balanced brew with a higher abv. Sneaky strong!

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.

UncleKorm (921) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2014
On tap poured a cloudy orange-brown hue with large frothy beige head. Moderate sweet malty rye aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a bold bitter finish of ling duration. Tastes are rye, caramel, brown sugar, hay, and pine. Full bodied. It may be one of the longest lasting finishes of any beer I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yikes. A lot wrong with this one. Looked decent once poured, hazy amber without much of a head. Small ring of white foam, nice lace. Aroma was malty, caramel dominated, maybe some fruit in there, not much hop. Could be a yeast presence, fruity like esters. Flavors were lightly sweet and fruity. Mouthfeel super thin and watery. Nothing good about this one.

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...)

12 oz bottle pours and amber/red color with a nice tan head. Aromas of malt, light floral. Medium mouthfeel, but the flavors donít mix as well asi they could. A little disappointing

I picked up as part of a M&M 6pk from Woodmanís in Sun Prairie late summer 2012. Pours a reddish/orange color with a slight off-white head. Scent is mild with malts and slight hint of hops. Taste is bold with wheat, rye, and hops. After taste is slightly crisp and bitter. Drinks smooth but has a good grain taste that is hard to pass up. Made quite well!

Amber pour, white head. Aromas of candied grapefruit, wet wood and spice. Medium bodied, slightly spicy with wood and and grapefruit flavours. Also some perfumey/floral hops. I like the hop/malt profile.
