COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
KINGPIN is a full-flavored, red-colored ale that uses a rarely-grown Willamette Valley Hop varietal known as Liberty Hops from fourth generation hop farmer John Annen of Annen Bros. Farm in Silverton, Oregon. Jeff and his team of brewers also used rye and caramel malt leading to a unique flavor profile; triple-hopped for bitter aroma and a unique dry-hopped character.

Ungstrup (35904) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2011
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of fruits, malt, caramel, and English hops? The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruits, caramel, and spicy hops, leading to a bitter finish.

12 oz bottle pours and amber/red color with a nice tan head. Aromas of malt, light floral. Medium mouthfeel, but the flavors dont mix as well asi they could. A little disappointing

djd07 (13187) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a medium creamy beige head that lasts awhile that leaves sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt with caramel and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a rye malt and light hoppy finish. Hides the alcohol well, a good American strong ale from Bridgeport.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 5, 2011
On tap with Jeff at Bridgeport. Pours red with off-white foam. Smells sweet. Tastes sweet with a light caramel and enough bitterness to keep me interested. Seems like a sweet ESB. Its one of the better double reds Ive had (not that that says much...)

heemer77 (5333) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Deep garnet colored brew from the bottle with a thin light kahki head. The nose has lots of cotton candy along with some caramel. There is also a little bit of bubblegum and apples. The taste is dry apple core with old caramel. There is also some wood and glue in the finish. A little bit of plastic. Bleh.

BookemDonno (3) - Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2011 does not count
Nicely hopped. Smooth mouth feel. medium body, average carbonation, clear, medium bitterness,. Main thing about this beer is its hop bite. Good for a few pints, but definitely not a session beer.

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Deep amber pour into thick off-white foamy head that slowly melts into sticky lacing and a pool of foam. Aroma of malted rye, caramel, and yeasty buiscut. Initial flavor of sweet caramel and citrus that slowly fades into a bitter, yet buttery hoppy finish.

mar (5334) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Deep amber with a cream head. Nose is laffy taffy, hops, faint bitterness, and fruits. Decent palate, flavor is super sweet, definitely not triple hopped, and chewy.

thirdeye11 (6136) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2011
(12oz bottle thanks to mar) clear medium copper, creamy tan head. Nose of caramel, light citrus hops, laffy taffy, banana, and slightly funky. Taste of umami, sweat, salty, bitter and really pretty gross. Old dishrag and dirty water. Metallic finish, slightly creamy but the herbal bitter linger reminds me of a hot tea bag thats been squeezed out. Not good.
