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.

brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
On tap @ Bridgeport. Clear light amber colored beer with a white head. A lot of caramel malts, bread, and sweet fruits. There’s a little bit of a perfume character to the nose. Very floral. The flavor is a little bitter on the back end, but it’s mostly sweet caramel and berry sort of esters. Pretty sweet and malty, which I guess is to be expected.

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.

Bottle from Bottleworks. Pours rather amber with a small beige head. Aroma is light malty with something floral. Med body. Has a noticeable rye character. Hop is earthy and floral. This is really solid flavor. Like this one.

crossovert (14128) - 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 can’t help but compare the two, this one pales. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-20-2011 21:02:59

(12oz bottle, courtesy of “the Boss” blutt59) Pours a clear amber body with a moderate cream head. Aroma of caramel, grass, mustiness, and white grape skins. Flavor of caramel, grass, florals, and toasted grain with a dry, somewhat bitter finish.

"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."

3.5
deyholla (12583) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2013
On tap at Skinny Slims. Pours a clear deep amber red with a creamy tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grassiness with a backing sweet grain and hint of caramel. Flavor is similar with a nice grassy note supported by sweet grains and a touch of cookie.
