Bridgeport IPA used to be my favorite. I tried a number of other IPAs and Pale Ales, but none matched it, until I finally found this. Wish it was easier to find it in stores. Try it cask conditioned at the Jolly Roger tap room. dwyerpg (6365) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 6, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2009 Had the dry-hopped version on tap for breakfast at the 5-spot in Upper Queen Anne. Excellent. A truly fine pale cale, crisp and clean. It had a great floral hop character to it and was consistent throughout. A great finish.
Had again and scored it a 4.5 Great beer. JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Bready hop aroma. ale golden in color with fluffy head. Filtered with some tiny bubbles. Rich malty flavor, apricot fruitiness and a nice hoppy balance. Bitter finish. A great brew. Major thanks to Andre’ for the nice PacNW brews! Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2000
This is a top 5 pale ale in my master list. Malty, hoppy, very distinctive flavor supplied by the well balanced Czech hops and malts. Super-Duper beer for you pale ale lovers. Hard to find outside Washington State. KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2002
7/11/02: Aroma light but very agreeable--floral/hoppy..Color a very lovely orange-gold with a wonderful billowy head with fine lace. The flavor is multi-faceted...first is a combination of mild malt sweetness and some fruity (citrusy) hop interaction, followed by a quick pistol-like shot of intense hop bitters. Body is light, but not thin---just enough substance to let you know you're not alone...The finish is wonderfully bracing--attacking the front of the mouth--almost tickling it--most unusual and enjoyable. This is a top-rate pale...Highly recommended. Re-Rate 7/19/02: Aroma slightly more present this time around (Maybe my nose was asleep before)...malt slightly more apparent in finish as well...Gee, this is good stuff!

Poured an amazing glowing orange color. Swirly creamy head. Great lacing. Very very very enjoyable beer. Perhaps the best pale ale from Seattle!

This beer looked great from the start. Peachy body and a creamy head having little furrows dividing mountains. Clean, crisp, and refreshing hop aroma--a nearly heavenly floral bouquet of unadulterated hops. This was a virtually perfect American pale ale. The cream head had velvety texture and gave way to a clean, floral hop taste that was consistently bitter, but without a hard bite. This is certainly one of the best APA's in creation--a paradigm from the Pacific Northwest and another stellar concoction from Maritime Pacific.

Brilliant clear deep golden, with a thin white head that stays on top. Beautifully hopped. Lingering bitter finish. Nicely balanced with a maltiness that still allows the hops to be the star of the show. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 20, 2001
deep golden colour, lot of foam, strong hop presence, smooth, great bitterness, very long aftertaste philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2010
