Were celebrating three decades of craft brewing in Oregon the only way we know how, by brewing three distinctive beers. This dry-hopped pale showcasing crystal hops is beer #1 in our series - made to honor the hop revolution that ignited the craft brewing movement thirty years ago.

12 oz single bought from Fred Meyer in North Salem. $1.19 Nice golden coloured ale with an inch thick off white head. Handsome. WEll hopped aroma the crystal hops are not my absolute favourite but this is fine enough. Taste is also nice with good lemon hints..tastes very fresh. Malts are there but in the back. Simple but nice. Good palate properly carbonated and very likable A nice simple APA..would do great in June. I think this is a return to form by Bridgeport...look forward to more in the series.

Bottle from Walmart. Hazy orange/golden in color. Sweet fruity nose with a little bit of a spicy hop character. Moderately hopped with a decent malt backbone. Fairly average.

The beer was good it almost had the ipa flavoring from the hops but without all the kick. It was smoothe and poured well ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours a semi-hazy amber with a small off-white head, and some lacing. smell is faint, dry leaves, and hops. taste is of caramel, hops, citrus, and a nice malt back, more bitter than the typical pale ale. ends dry and bitter.

Very clean dry taste yet a nice more east coast mouth feel. Slight pine in the hops flavor. Really nice mild pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. This ones crisp, for sure, and lacks a lot of the pungent hop flavor in some of their other brews (most notably, obviously, their IPA). That light flavor allows a tinny note to come through -- the note Ive now come to identify with all Bridgeport brews. Other than that, its got a nice grassy hop presence that overpowers the light malts and lingers for a bit. Not too shabby, but not something Id opt for most days.

12oz, Seattle. Pale, mild hop. Decent pale beer, soft amber malt. Quite boring.

unclemike (2339) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle poured a clear gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of straw, grapefruit zest, earthiness and light lemon zest. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread and light lemon zest with a crisp dry finish.
