3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
4 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s tap room. Consumed on 5-4-13. Listed as "Bridge Jumper Strong Pale Ale." Pours a gray-ish, dark brass. Good, citrus/pine hops in the aroma. Sweet, creamy taste features citrus, apricot, and pine flavors. Medium body. Some liveliness in the palate. This is an enjoyable and pretty good though not great IPA/double IPA/American strong ale. It was the best of the four beers I tried at the brewery. 7/3/7/3/15=>3.5

Draft at brewery. Newly released. Very dry. Doesn’t taste near as strong as 8.5%. Not hoppy like an IPA. Noy much head or lace. dark murky brown. Server called it an English Ale. Doesn’t taste English. Good though.

Tap at the taproom. Light amber to dark orange pour with a foamy white head. Rich caramel malt, bold floral hop, and a touch of raisin. Very nice!

Good color, very fresh tasting beer. It makes me feel generally warm and toasty but also cool and refreshed, simultaneously! It reminds me of Popeye's spinach, not from taste, but the way it makes it makes me more awesome. I'm glad there so close.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draught at the brewery on their Grand Opening day. Pours a hazy orange amber colored ale, some nitro-like bubble excitation followed by a thick off-white head that really sticks with the glass throughout. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, a hint of papaya, lots of floral hops and a hint of mild raisin. Taste is full bodied, some alcohol sensation, and flavors of sweet caramel malt, a hint of tropical hard fruit and light raisin. Finish is quite smooth, sweet and has a short hop bite at first followed by extra caramel and fruity malt aftertaste. Allow this to warm up a little and the floral hops really shine. Closer to a full-bodied Old Ale with extra floral hop and fruity profile or as an Imperial IPA and Old Ale hybrid that will do extremely well during the winter holidays. Excellent inauguration beer especially from a new brewery with all new equipment.
