COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style IPA is a full-flavored, full-bodied brew that has a big bold malt character and intense aromatics. Itís a well-balanced, golden-colored brew that has a crisp hop finish that doesnít bite. With its palate cleansing finish, IPA is a perfect for highly spiced dishes with curry, ginger, garlic or cumin. This classic English style IPA is brewed with: 2-row Pale malt and is hopped with Challenger and East Kent Goldings hops

Aroma leans a little too much on the malty side, yet the dry hoppy taste comes through nice. Abit sweet for my liking but overall a nice IPA that is very enjoyable.

copper colored IPA, hoppy up front, w/ a bitter finish, not too well balanced

I am an IPA fan, but I did not like this beer as far as IPAís go. Little hop flavor and aroma. Alot of bitterness which is good when you have a large malt character (which I thought this lacked).

HoppedHead (106) - seattle, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2002
Decent IPA, Bitter but lacking in aroma hops, mild malty taste at first followed by a biiter crisp finish, a good summer time ipa, light body golden color, enjoyable not excellent

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 11, 2002
Pours a nice orange or amber yellow color, head is white and generous, the lace in sheets that coats the glass. Slightly sweet malt start, the top is light, the finish a nice hop bitter, dry and moderate carbonation. A middle of the road IPA, not over powering, but quite quaffable and well worth a sample.

How does Full Sail continue to make such fine brews? This one may be the weak sibling, but not everyone can be the golden child. A solid brew nonetheless.

Iím dissapointed: I drink an IPA for the hops, and this one didnít have it. I consider the Bridgeport IPA mildly hoppy, and this didnít even come close. It was a fine beer, perhaps, but not for an IPA, maybe meerly a pale.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 I'm surprised by the comments below, as you'd think there were no hops in this one. Who said that an IPA had to make your eyes water. Certainly on the lighter side for a west coast IPA but give this to a novice and they'll still scrunch their face up. I loved it, very refreshing and crisp, made for a perfect lunch yesterday. Went perfectly with a spicy tuna roll and lettuce wraps.

BillKismet (3334) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 13, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2007 Golden-amber with foamy head and a lightly hopped aroma. This was a dissapointing IPA, smooth, but characterized by bland hopping. Average at best with nondiscrete flavors.

One of my favorite IPAís. Smooth hoppy finish, not overbearing. Easy to drink.
