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.

deyholla (8605) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2013
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.

Ferris (8510) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
Draft - Aromatic hops and some caramel in the background. Amber hue with medium persistent head. Sweetness from the malts upfront easing into a hoppy bitterness. I think the bitterness is a bit over the top for the style.

BVery (8222) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle from Friar Tuck in Peoria, IL. Mostly clear reddish amber pour with a spotty white head. Mild caramel, and a heavy dose of artificial sweetener. Ooff, the sweetener. This isn’t very drinkable.

DuffMan (8208) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2012
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.

olio (8090) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2012
Draught @ Hawthorne Hophouse, Portland.
Pours copper color with small head. Aroma of berries, malts, dark fruits and caramel. Flavour of berries, malts, ripe fruits and grass.

marcus (7838) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 15, 2011
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.

laiti (7708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2012
Draught (nitro) @ Hawthorne Hophouse. Rated on 11.07.2012
Aroma is sweet with fruits, peaches and honey. Flavour is hoppy with resin and some peaches. This has some hops that linger in my mouth for a long time and they do not feel nice.
