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.

The winning beer in a 2014 taste competition. It has a real crisp flavor to it, a bit fruity or citrusy as well. I can see why it won.

It must be the crystal hops, I’m not sure, but there is some flavor that I really love in this beer.

12oz bottle from Mitsuya’s Liquor in Asagaya. Poured into a snifter. Hazy golden orange color with a medium-sized off-white head that stuck around for most of the beer. Honey, malty, caramel on the nose with slight pine needle undertones. Very sweet on the palate...overly in my opinion. A slight hint of bitterness on a long dry sweet finish. Not balanced enough.

Golden yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is malt and fruity hops. Taste is a nice fruity hop flavor balanced by a malty backbone. So tasty! Great lacing.

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

Bottle enjoyed right before Christmas in Oregon. Nice, easy to drink. Can't wait to try the others.

From a bottle. This one’s 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 I’ve now come to identify with all Bridgeport brews. Other than that, it’s got a nice grassy hop presence that overpowers the light malts and lingers for a bit. Not too shabby, but not something I’d opt for most days.

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