Easy drinking cloudy beer. This tastes quite rich, but not very hoppy. I think it will be quite filling.

On tap @ Bridgeport. Orange pour with a white head. Nice melon and even slightly tropical hops. Maybe a little on the malty side, but a solid hop profile. The flavor is super juicy and tropical. A lot of mango and perhaps star fruit. A bunch of grapefruit juice as well. Nice beer.

It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of straw, grapefruit, earthiness and some lemon. The taste was similar to the aroma with bread, lemon malts and a nice dry finish. The palate was light bodied and crisp.Thanks to Hayduke.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bridgeport pale ale
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a hazed golden amber color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head has a good staying power, slowly fading over time to leave some foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a citrus smell with some grapefruit and lemon and a bit of a sweeter orange smell. Along with these aromas comes some notes of a grainy smell as well as a little bit of a herbal and floral nose as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a grainy and malt forward flavor with a modest showing of a grapefruit hop upfront. There is a light fruitiness of a sweet citrus and melon flavor right from the start as well, which with the malty flavors create a rather consistent base flavor. While the grapefruit is lighter upfront, it is accompanied by some new hop flavors of an herbal and pine nature in the end, which all in all end up leaving a rather crisped and malty hop taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker side for a brew of 5.2 % abv., with a lower carbonation level. For the blend of malty and hoppy flavors, the thicker body (for a 5.2 % beer) is quite nice, really accentuating those flavors rather well.
Overall – This was a rather enjoyable pale ale with enough hop to keep it exciting, but yet not too much to overwhelm the easy drinking pale ale style.

Draught at the Bridgeport Brewery Co, Portland, OR as Conviction Pale Ale.
Clear golden colour with a tiny white head. Hops, mild sourness, mild bitterness and dry malt in the aroma. The flavour is sourish hops, bitterness, grainy malt and some dryness. Dry for a Pale Ale. Tasty.

Not sure how I feel about this one, didn’t like it at first but it grows on you. But I don’t think I’ll finish the bottle.

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.
