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.

Hearty caramel notes dominate a rich, yet simple straightforward malt body. Dark amber body with a creamy character. Light pine and grapefruit with a resinous touch. Good winter session.

12oz Bottle – Gravity Beer Market – Olympia, WA
Reddish amber in color, clear with a thin head. Hops where floral and light fruit. Big malt bomb this brew was. The hops are taken over by the malt sweetness. This was a easy drinking brew.

Sampled on 4/8/2011. This American Strong Ale pours a medium red color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is bready and malty with some piney and floral hops. A medium bodied American Strong Ale. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are piney and floral. Decent carbonation. Nice balance. Nice hoppy finish. Bitterness kind of builds and lingers. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

quite an alarming smell- like cold brandy .. great foam, pretty damn good lacing also .. . dark murky tan .. . nicely balanced, a bit from both sides .. . pretty good actually, a touch boozy but pretty drinkable .. .

I caught my wife in bed with my best friend.
You bitter?
Yeah, bit HIM too!

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.
