We’re 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.

Pours a lightly hazy orange-gold, big head of foam(served near room temp), nice sticky lacing. Very aromatic, lots of citrus fruits in the nose that hint at a certain level of bitterness but some kind of sweet note or 2 also peeks through. The citrus is there for sure in the taste. I get oranges and lemon peel with grapefruit playing a lesser role. The malt comes across as semi sweet with more of a bready character. Pretty good balance here. Medium bodied with lightish carbonation...nice mouthfeel. a darn good APA here from Oregon’s oldest craft brewery.

Bottle. Pours a deep gold with a high, white, fine-grained, lacy, sticky head. Nose is citrus, sage, rosemary, funk, and lavender. Some tangerine sweetness up front, then strong herbal bitterness kicking in; holds together quite nicely with an elegant balance. The mouthfeel is very rich and soft, but still has sufficient crispness to keep it sharp. The finish echoes the sweetness and bitterness in equal parts. I’m impressed.

cblado (292) - Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange color. Very little head, no lacing. Aroma is caramel malt with some pine notes. Flavor is very hoppy, with a slight amount of caramel malt and toffee notes. Palate is a bit thinner than I expected, which makes it very drinkable. Overall a decent pale ale.

BeerRenter76 (341) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Originally rated on 5/10/14. Dank, almost skunky hops upfront, with some citrus coming in mostly lemons, a bit of malt pokes through. Murky orange/ yellowish brown body, the head is ringed and thin but leaves some spotty lace. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but ok for the style. Flavor is a bit of a let down considering the aroma, some malts, and lemon juice. Overall a decent enough pale, easy to drink.

brokensail (13755) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
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.

Bottle. Medium golden average white head. Pale straw malts, lightly floral hops with herbal undertones. Just ok.

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.
