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.

Fatehunter's rating

Fatehunter (2413) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Poured into a wide flute glass. Deep red color with a thick, finger and half of tight dirty head. Really well put together. Big malt nose, small lemon and grapefruit, banana at the end. This is a bold taste. Lots of malt balanced with an equal large dose of hops. The bitterness wins out at the end with an uppercut to the tongue. It is a little unruly but worth it. Smooth and creamy texture with low carbonation. Works really well. A straightforward and bold flavor. Beautiful to look at. An enjoyable and different amber ale.

Ive been drinking beers and ales for over 48 years and I love my reds. This is worst red ale Ive ever tasted. After one taste, I poured a 6 pack down the drain. I tried another Bridgeport product too and I will say I will never buy another, very disappointed.

LesArgen (330) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2016
Loads of biscuit, breadcrumbs, caramel and alcohol, plus a little apricot and grapefruit aroma. The taste is quite hoppy, with more biscuit and caramel. The alcohol makes it positively warm the throat, but the finish is marred by a metallic astringency. A shame, because its otherwise a lot of fun.

Draft pour on nitro. Normally the beers Ive tried on nitro are better than their non-nitro versions, but not this time. It was incredibly smooth to drink, but it was to the point that it barely had any carbonation, so it tasted flat. Also in this particular version, while the malts showed through, you could barely taste any hops.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of HOPS, and some other hints, maybe fruit, maybe coffee. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and hoppy as hell.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle in Portland. Nice red amber body with slight head. Nose is fruits, caramel and malts. Same with the taste of malts and caramel. Nice bitter finish.

M_Sack (644) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Deep caramel, with well retained frothy cappuccino head and heavy lacing. Aromas dominated by caramel, traces of almond, boozy fruit cake and earthy hops. Immediate caramel flavours, followed by a decent whack of alcohol which doesn't detract, cleansing mid palate bitterness and back notes of malty, cherry sweetness, ending with a long, earthy finish. Love those earthy hops. More of these please Brewers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
