I’ve now had two beers from this brewery, Both in aluminum bottles, both stored in the same way as every other beer I drink, both opened as carefully as any other beer ... and both of them gushing out of the top like volcanoes. Thankfully I opened this one over the sink, so I was spared the mess. But even after letting it sit for several minutes it still poured mostly foam. This problem is enough to put me off of the brewery for good. There is no sense buying a pint of beer and losing half of it in a mess, then having to stare at ridiculous foam while it dissipates over a long while.
Once I was able to taste this beer it was nothing special. The aroma had only a mild, very slight rye in the background, and the flavor was muted and boring. Bridgeworks, you have a problem in your packaging. I won’t be buying any more of your products. bluejacket74 (1993) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2016
16 ounce aluminum bottle, no dating I could find on it. This batch says it’s 6.7% ABV. Served in a Spiegelau IPA glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy dark gold color with about an inch and a half off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both very good. The brew smells like citrusy (citrus peel) and grassy hops, bready malt and spicy rye. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there’s also some caramel malt noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with a good amount of soft carbonation. It’s also easy enough to drink. I liked this brew, definitely worth a try if you like rye IPA’s. $5 for a single bottle. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2015
