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.

Salmoniform (825) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Copper hue with creamy off white head thT dissipated to a ring. Aroma is malt, peppercorn, rye, caramel, grass. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a spicy hop bitterness that extends through the finish. Overall this is a nice brew.

Lemke10 (805) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2012
I picked up as part of a M&M 6pk from Woodman’s 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.

jw0406 (781) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2011
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

thetmaxx (751) - West Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Poured from the bottle not fully chilled, just cool. Aroma is very nicely hoped. The malt is also coming through on the aroma. It is really balanced, with citrus notes, earthy and spicey notes. Flavour is much more mellow, while the bitterness is nice. The malt character is also good, very balanced. the palate is stcky oily like a IPA and finishes slightly sweet.

BK7 (739) - 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 (733) - 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.

pkbites (693) - 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 (671) - 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.
