2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A triple hopped beer, where have I seen that before?
It pours a clear amber/red with a frothy white head that dissipates with a bit of lacing.
The smell is very sweet in the aroma. Very basic actually, not much hops at all. It has a little bit of candied orange and vanilla icing, not what i was expecting.
The flavor is sweet and tangy with a medium bitterness. It is mostly malt-driven and the malts just are super flat, they do nothing to compliment the hops. The hops are mainly citrusy but also a bit tangy. There is a hint of vegetal bitterness in the finish.
I had a NN last night and can’t help but compare the two, this one pales.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Copper amber with a reddish hue and a medium off-white head. Aroma is grainy caramel, fairly muted. The palate is quite grainy with a hard mouthfeel and reedy bitter hops provide little aromatics. This was a pretty big dud for me. Bridgeport beers just haven’t impressed me really, with the exception of their cask offerings at the actual brewery.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, grapefruit), with notes of diacetyl and black tea.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, slightly unclean.
Medium to full body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic, lightly astringent.
All but ruined by a buttery nose and a dirty, sour mouth experience. Poor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Pale amber, sudsy white head, moderately sized, spotty lacing.   Musty hop nose, slight pith and citrus zest.   A bit of dull candied citrus peel on the tongue.   Certainly a hoppy Amber, and on par for a Red Ale.   Pithy on the backside.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not a big one, on the hoppier side, but with enough malt base to make it interesting.   Lingering pith.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Cafe Dolce, Missoula. Pours cloudy reddish amber with a thin beige head and a floral hoppy aroma. There is a hearty malt flavor with a surprisingly mild bitter finish, considering this beer is triple hopped. Nevertheless, a fairly satisfying brew, but a bit harsh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Skinny Slims. Pours a clear deep amber red with a creamy tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grassiness with a backing sweet grain and hint of caramel. Flavor is similar with a nice grassy note supported by sweet grains and a touch of cookie.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose has notes of caramel and a good dose of iced tea. Some rye pokes through as does some spicy hop notes. Light fruity notes also. Pours amber, well filtered, a bit of head for a little while. The flavor has notes of iced tea throughout, light caramel, some spicy hops, a little earthy, bitterness level is light to medium. A touch herbal. Not my favorite.
