3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish copper color. Thick pearly head, nice lacing. Aroma is sweet, with toffee tones. Flavor is sweet but not cloying. There is a rich hop flavor, but it’s not overpowering. Rather than a citrusy hop nose, the hops come in the aftertaste along with the toffee malt flavors. Overall, I enjoyed this quite a bit. I would definitely buy it again.

Very malty, bitter and hoppy. Have had better but very solid at over 7%...almost like a dark

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is rich caramel malt and floral citrus aroma hopping, hint of roast. Appearance is crystal clear orange brown with small off white head that dissipates quickly. Taste is rich caramel malt and citrus aroma hopping forward. Pronounced hop bitterness keeps what would otherwise be a very malty beer balanced. Hint of rye lingers with the sweet caramel malt. Palate is medium light and crisp. Light on the tongue for the amount of flavor present. Overall I really like this beer. It is unique and works IMO. Wish there were more well hopped ambers like this. Could use a hint more body though.

Pours and retains a solid head. Got a sweat citrus punch. Then there is toffee and biscuit. Little bitterness but just nice. And maybe a plum edge late. Nice.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: Three fingers light oatmeal-brown head, amber red color, clear, head diminishes moderately slow, good lacing. Aroma: light caramel, light floral, light skunky. Palate: Medium body, average carbonation, decent bitter finish, sticky texture. Taste: caramel sweetness really shines through, with bitterness quietly building and taking over. Overall, aroma throws me off, but tastes are there and so is the palate.

pours a copper color that had a lot of smoke and a thick white head. the aroma is malts, bready, and floral hops. the flavor is more of the same. there is quite a big hop kick up front but its not overpowering. in the taste you pick up some citrus and pine. very good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red/orange in colour with a thin head and strong floral hops aroma. Definitely tastes like a red ale and a good one too.
