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.

Ferris (14359) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
Draft - Aromatic hops and some caramel in the background. Amber hue with medium persistent head. Sweetness from the malts upfront easing into a hoppy bitterness. I think the bitterness is a bit over the top for the style.

djd07 (13660) - 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.

crossovert (12253) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
A triple hopped beer, where have I seen that before? It pours a clear amber/red with a frothy white head that dissipates with a bit of lacing. The smell is very sweet in the aroma. Very basic actually, not much hops at all. It has a little bit of candied orange and vanilla icing, not what i was expecting. The flavor is sweet and tangy with a medium bitterness. It is mostly malt-driven and the malts just are super flat, they do nothing to compliment the hops. The hops are mainly citrusy but also a bit tangy. There is a hint of vegetal bitterness in the finish. I had a NN last night and cant help but compare the two, this one pales. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-20-2011 21:02:59

"looking at the other reviews, sounds like this one might not be old like i thought, just a little on the bland side for a "triple hopped double red ale". a little orange-ish citrus and caramel malt. a little thin for the abv. not bad, but a little dsiappointing after the build-up. About average for a red."

rosenbergh (11374) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Draught at the Bridgeport Brewery Co, Portland, OR. Clear deep amber colour with a small white head. Mild sweet malt and some grainy malty notes in the aroma. The flavour is grainy malt, malty sweetness, sugar and some mild hoppy bitterness. Grainy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
