22oz bottle
Appearance: Pours slightly hazy dark golden with a nice creamy white head and some lacing
Aroma: Pine, fruits, citrus
Taste: Pine, citrus, lemon peel. Bitterness and malts at the finish that stick with you.
I love a good hoppy beer, but this just doesn’t have the right combination of hops for my taste.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2010
An example of a hopped up beer gone too far, as there is no balance whatsoever. Aromas of citrus hop, dough, and barnyard. The taste is floral and citrus hop with an extremely bitter ending.

cyanescens (159) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Great IPA. Like Bridgeport’s typical IPA but beefed up with more gravity and more hops. Similar body, just as nice. Earthy, piney, citrus, hay. Deep amber. Nicer, thick, rich, foamy. tan. I would buy this beer again. Jan 1, 2010.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle:   Reddish amber, slightly hazy, moderate foamy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Somewhat of an earthy hop nose.   Bright hoppiness on the tongue, a bit earthy, not all that bitter tho.   Has a bit of floralness as well.   Astringent bitterness on the tongue.   Not as malty as I like for an IIPA, as if thats a shocker.   I guess I was thinking it would be fresher, much like their Harvest but I was wrong.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Certainly warming.   Bigger than your average IPA, but for me not quite in the IIPA category.   Slightly biting on the finish, but not as malty nor sweet as I would expect for a bigger IPA.   Decent, tasty, but another beer that leaves me wanting more than what was there.

Bomber courtesy of kenb. Pours a hazy dark gold with a thick 2 finger off-white head that leaves great lacing. The nose is floral and citrus hops. The taste is caramel, citrus, tart grapefruit and pine. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Very nice IIPA. Thanks Ken

A nice, well-balanced DIPA with the citrusy hop flavor and aroma I so crave, yet with an appropriate bitterness for the alc burn (pretty well hidden). Could be my favorite Bridgeport, today at least.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Pours hazy orange with a fluffy off-white head. Big, citrus-dominated nose. Sharp pine finish.

Aggy360 (115) - Anchorage/ Vista,CA, Alaska, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Pours a hazy golden orange with yellow highlights. It has a tight off white head. The aroma is very citrusy and fruity. A lot of orange character in the aroma, very sweet. A malt base that is quickly overpowered by a beautiful blend of citrus and pine hop flavors and bitterness. The finish is dry, very nice DIPA.

KyotoLefty (10311) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2009
Draught at the Bridgeport Brewery. Amber-orange color with lace. Very earthy hop aroma with cut grass, cow shit and marijuana. Flavors of grassy hops, pine, dark fruit, caramel, with a long, earthy, hop and grass finish. Very complex hops and enough malt to make it work well. Wacky but interesting aromas, and a rich, full mouth. The best of the day.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 19, 2009
Bottle. Thanks to Barry. Nose is big and citric, some spruce, orange, grapefruit. Palate is big and sweet, a shade of yeast, well-balanced, not boozy. Very well-made IIPA, but nothing new or brilliant.
