Light golden color, nice citrus aroma. Has the typical bite of an IPA. Still a clean and refreshing beer. Good effort. Reid (2675) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2003
The beer pours a nice deep amaber almost orange color with a little haze. Small heads that quickly dissapates to leave a nice lace dow the glass.
Wonderful hoppy IPA aroma very well done..also smell fruit..apples maybe!
Very nice hoppy taste and not too dry ..this lingers wonderful..love this IPA.
The mouthfeel is just right for this style..just the correct carbonation..but smooth in places.
Amost exceptionally drinkable IPA.. y0cola (361) - fremont, California, USA - OCT 18, 2003
thick pale yellow color. kinda moldy cheesy smell with a small light head..not a powerful but a nice hop flavor. OldGrowth (3665) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2003

Pazzo: Good nose. Citrusy, straw. Orange color. Little head. Citrus orange/grapefruit some sweetness. Bitter dry clean finish. Good solid ipa. A tad thin, but I'm getting picky now.
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2004 Draught. Dark straw color and a nice foamy head with good retention. Leads with aggressive hop character but has some fruit qualities underneath, including a touch of sourness. Strong citrus quality. Good but not outstanding.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2003 Dark golden color, large head, lots of lacing. Citrus hops, more well-balanced than most IPAs on the west coast, and one of the better ones. bsour (78) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 26, 2003
I've had this on a few occasions now. Each time I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. Good color and aroma but lacking in the hops. I like IPA's with a little more hops but this one is definitely a good beer. palliko (12) - Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2003
I love IPA's. And Bridgeport is the IPA I buy most often. They have done a wonderful job: the nose is heavy with citrusy hops; the first taste packs a whallop; the tiniest hint of metallic taste is followed by a rich crisp and bright middle; the after taste is gently bitter and perfectly dry. It goes great with most foods; it is refreshing after a hot summer sun; and it never fails to please the palate. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2003
Light-hazy golden with medium/large off-white head. Aroma is floral, slightly sweet, light earthy. Taste is floral/earthy bitter throughout. Medium body. Nothing fancy, just a solid old-fashioned straightforward English-style IPA. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Cask conditioned and hand poured. Deep golden color with nice head and lots of very nice lacing. A pleasant citrus hoppy nose. Very smooth blend of floral hops balanced just right. A very fine IPA!
