BridgePort BeerTown Brown
Nice long lasting head that drops leaving sheets of lacing... color is a clear polished chesnut. Smells "English". Light brown and caramel malts with a touch of diacetyl ... fruity esters are present and fairly out front. Flavor is pretty much all toasted malts.. fairly heavy on the toasted malts.. the ale fruitiness is ever present... lighter than expected caramel.. earthy hop flavor.

BridgePort Kingpin Double Red Ale
Draft pour on nitro. Normally the beers I’ve tried on nitro are better than their non-nitro versions, but not this time. It was incredibly smooth to drink, but it was to the point that it barely had any carbonation, so it tasted flat. Also in this particular version, while the malts showed through, you could barely taste any hops.

BridgePort Hop Czar Imperial IPA
Tap at Petition - great drink - super balance - piney citrus hop dominant against competing caramel malt - easy drinker - like it a lot.

BridgePort Blue Heron Ale
Lite golden brew topped by a short lived 1/2" head... not real lacing. Aroma is Citrus/Grassy hops and pale malts... mild yeasty fruitiness. Grassy and mild grapefruit hoppiness in the palate... very good pale malt backbone... throw in some EKG spicyness for good measure... lite medium mouthfeel

BridgePort Ebenezer Ale
Almost no head on top of pretty dark brown brew. No lacing to speak of. Smell is like most run of the mill PNW winter ales (I think I need to change things up). Caramel, roasted and toasted malts with enough hops (citrusy) to balance while still making it feel "warm". Taste is again pretty standard ... still pretty good though. raisins and rum cake... nice and warming ... definately makes me think of Christmas.

BridgePort Cream Ale
It has been a time since I have experienced an offering that brought the malt forward like this. An experience that is sadly becoming rarer and rarer in this day of hop overindulgence... There is a hint of freshly baked biscuits in this bottle. A very nice beer that will be imbibed upon again.

BridgePort Stumptown CandyPeel IPA
Decent aroma of bread, cereal and a hint of citrus. I like that the beer is a hazy, unfiltered amber orange color. Minimal head. Not overly sweet, or bitter, kind of in the middle. Reminds me of a liquid tangerine Jolly Rancher. It’s not a bad beer, just given the quality of IPAs in the market right now, there are way too many other better choices.

BridgePort Long Ball Ale
Cask at GBBF 2016. It pours lightly hazy green - yellow with a small white head. The aroma is softz sweet, tangy, salted lemon, lime, apple, lemon sherbet and mild honey. The taste is smooth, flat, honey & ginger tea, oily, juicy, stone fruits, candy and toasted sugar with a short, sugary white finish. Light - medium body and limited carbonation. Not much going on. Fair.

BridgePort Stumptown Tart Cherry Saison
Bomber poured into a tulip glass: slightly hazy, golden orange honey color with about an inch of dense, off-white foam, disappearing rather quickly with no lace. Nose has cherry, some barn funk, honey. The flavor has a touch of sweet tart, some biscuit, acidity, and hoppy twang. The finish is a bit sour and acidic. Medium, creamy, effervescent.

BridgePort Stumptown Tart Cherry Saison
Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours orange gold with a white head. Tart cherry aroma - but not strongly so. Med minus body. Flavor is malty and has some tart cherry. Just a bit phenolic. It’s ok, but not as cherry as expected. Still, it’s growing on me.

BridgePort Stumptown CandyPeel IPA
12 oz bottle from Bend Oregon, consumed nearby. No date Apricot colored body with a hedgehogs size, durable, bone-colored head. Exceptional lacing. More orange peel than candy, this IPA has near average bitterness and is far from sweet. Interesting herbal-citrus aroma. Lingering, hoppy aftertaste with near moderate bitterness.

Bottle to glass - pours a hazed gold wispy white head with spotty lace. Aroma of honey, florals, bitter citrus. Dry and spritzy on the tongue. Bread and citrus flavored, perhaps some notes of resin....not bad.

BridgePort Cream Ale
Tap at OBF 2016. Pours gold with a white head. It has that cream ale aroma - reminding me of vanilla cream soda just a bit - which may only be a thing with the name. Med body or nearly. Flavor is sort of malty with that smooth cream thing. Maybe white grape? Pale fruits? Flavor is not extreme, but it is nice.

BridgePort Cream Ale
Bottle pours a hazy dark yellow with a very thin white head and virtually no lacing. Smells of potting soil and light lemon. Not a lot of flavor here but what there is tastes good, light and smooth yet full bodied. Seems a bit over-carbonated. Has a two-stage aftertaste, disappears quickly then comes back again.

BridgePort Raven Mad Imperial Porter
22 oz bottle into a goblet. Pours a dark brown. looking opaque and near black in the glass. A moderate size, durable tan head leaves a temporary but full coat of lacing on the glass. Aroma: a clear touch of whisky here; dark roasted grains with a slight hint of burnt malt. Some dark fruit and roasted nut notes. Flavor:disappointing, given the aroma, mainly due to an overbearing contribution from wood (oak?). Whisky mainly appears in the finish and aftertaste. Plenty of dark roasted malts, subtle dark fruit notes, and a hint of sour fruit. Mouthfeel: medium body and carbonation. Overall: too woody to recommend.

BridgePort Stumptown Tart Cherry Saison
Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a clear light amber, with a medium white head. Nose is sour cherries. Taste follows, with some grassy notes in the middle. Not very tart, and just a touch of cherry flavor. Inoffensive version of a saison, but lacking the typical Belgian yeast flavors.

Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is some orange but with a large sweetness. Kind of reminds me is a orange jolly rancher. Flavor is more of the orange with a very soft mouth feel. This is pretty darn sweet for an IPA with Vienna malt. I thinking they just used a lots artificial orange sweetener to get the alcohol where they wanted it. Not very hoppy just a sweet orangey mess.

BridgePort Hop Czar Imperial IPA
Hazy deep gold, almost an orange-like hue, with a creamy foamy top. Big earthy and grassy hop bitterness on the aroma with a little bitter orange peel as well. Earthy and grassy leafy flavor with some earthy citric pithy bitterness, but then all the sudden there’s this orange/grapefruit sweetness and a pale malty backbone.

BridgePort Hop Czar Imperial IPA
Bottle shared with a co-worker. Poured a clear orange color, though sediment really picked up on this one pretty quickly. Aroma was maltier than I would have expected, but a nice citrus character really comes through on it. Lots of floral hop leaf notes. Light chewy character. Grapefruit zest is nice. This had been in the co-worker’s fridge for almost a year and was still pretty solid - would like to try it fresh.
