foyle (424) - Wyoming, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a 2" off white fluffy head that drops very slowly with abundant lacing. Color is cloudy golden-orange with some sediment in suspension and mild streaming carbonation.
Aroma: pine, citrus, and pineapple dominate the white bread dough backbone.
Mouthfeel: medium a bit chewy & sticky with a somewhat dry and astringent finish.
Flavor: bitter citrus rind dominates from start to finish with some pine and tangerine notes. Malt is less pronounced than I expected with just enough sweetness to be noticeable.
Overall: very good. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - MAY 18, 2015
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head fades relatively quickly leaving just a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a fruity smell with lots of tropical fruits and citrus aromas. Along with these aromas comes some smells of a melon as well as some aromas of a more modest grassy and grapefruit hop smell. Overall quite sweet and delicious.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready flavor mixed with some nice grapefruit hop and a little bit of pine as well. As the taste advances, more and more bitter pine hop come to the tongue, bringing a bit of a resinous taste to the beer. All the while, sweeter flavors accompany the hop tastes, with some tropical and citrus sweet tastes, as well as a bit of a candied sugar comes to the tongue. Some hay and grass and an increase in the pine and some earth come at the very end, leaving one with a rather pleasant and smooth, but nicely hopped and decently sweeter flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. The thicker and creamier feel are fantastic for the brew and make for one easy drinking and flavorful double IPA.
Overall – This was another rather enjoyable brew by Bridgeport. I think many of their stronger (abv.) they do are rather underrated. They are flavorful and balanced, all while hiding much of the abv. and keeping a great drinkability.

Wow great smell of hops when you open the bottle, pours slightly hazy, bitterness and malt balance is good, and at 7.5%abv and 6.78 a six pack its a hidden gem and very underrated. That’s fine by me more for me without waiting in lines for overhyped beers. Good job Bridgeport! IPABevyGuy (67) - New York, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Smells a little fruity. Pretty dank beer with earthy hop flavor all the way through. Small malt body comes through in the middle to balance. It’s a decent drinking IPA, not much more to say about it. mjg74 (3141) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle from Walmart. Medium copper in color. Pungent hop nose with a little sweet fruitiness. Grapefruit bitterness up front. Not biting bitterness, but more of a balanced flavor. Midrange quaffable impy IPA. GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Rated based on notes taken 31 Aug 2012 -- This is a very enjoyable hop bomb. razzanof (72) - Leavenworth, Kansas, USA - DEC 5, 2014
From a bottle; pours slightly hazy gold. Persistent, thick white lacing. Aroma is a malty overtone. Taste is juicy, assertively bitter with a malty backbone.
