3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ BridgePort brewpub in PDX. Described here as an experimental imperial red ale. Pours reddish toffee color with very thin white head. Aroma is sweet syrupy malt with light fruit notes. Taste is big dark caramel malt with sharply bitter finish. Not much hop flavor, the bitterness kinda dominates. Seems like the same flavor profile as Kingpin, just more hops. They don’t add much, just heavy bitterness.
