BridgePort Kingpin Double Red Ale
Bottle. A: Dark red bordering on brown. Creme color head. Lacing. N: Pine, earth, peppercorn, ample grapefruit, rosemary, more herbs, very bready with rye being the most noticeable ítypeí. Bit of toffee and caramel character under the very intense hopping. T: Very bitter with a light sweetness and a good spiciness. M: Medium-light body, very dry, no alcohol, biting carbonation O: I can get behind this. Though not in any respect tamed or subtle, it has the kind of blast that goes pretty well with a social gathering.

BridgePort Tiny Horse Pilsner
Bottle. A: Mostly clear, burned gold in color with a thin white ring of head. N: Malt, bread, some pine, hint of grapefruit, some green apple, hints of lavender. T: Noticeably bitter and lightly sweet. M: Light body, very spritzy carbonation, no alcohol. O: My original rating on this, after a hard dayís work, was 3.6. After a second drinking, I think itís still fine, but not near to that level. Still, a lot of the local brewers could learn from this one.

BridgePort Deep Cuts IPW
GG, Seattle. Creamy thick lace, heavy wheaty suspension haze. Distinct wheat sweetness on nose, green hops underneath. Mildly crisp sip, lives up to the billing as a hoppy wheat ale. Near IPA levels of green hops with a much creamier, ester heavy sweet base. Drinks fine but not fantastic.

BridgePort Fallen Friar
Bomber from Boise Co-op. Dark golden, with sudden high head, which rapidly dissipates. First knock, the style needs to hold a big head. Aroma is in the ballpark, yeast, cloves. Taste carries these notes forward, sweet, slightly savory. Slick mouthfeel. Peppery finish.

BridgePort Mosaic Hopped Cream Ale
22 oz bottle from Winco super market in S.Salem OR $3.89 Pours a pale yellow colour with a levelly thick and luscious white head, Aroma not so good though..peanuts and caramel..hint of cinnamon ( very slight). Balanced taste..very malty.buttery creamy toffee to start..touch of stone fruit to end from the hops..juicy aftertaste. Mouth feel is pretty damned good and smooth..again a slight but noticed fruity hop after taste helps out. A nice enough beer

BridgePort Stumptown CandyPeel IPA
12 oz bottle enjoyed outside in the sun. Not really sure how I feel about a beer with candy in the description, but a fair chance will be given. Out weSoft citrus and malt aroma. Flavor is sweet, as expected, but not the type of sweet I had imagined. Light in the refreshment department. An okay beer for me.

BridgePort Stumptown CandyPeel IPA
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. From a 12 oz bottle the pours golden orange with a nose of citrus and grassy hops. Some orange peel too. The body is medium. The flavor is the orange peel with the hops added a floral and grassy touch that works well. Finish is lightly bitter and the candy/orange is quite nice. Good beer overall.

BridgePort Stumptown CandyPeel IPA
12 oz. bottle from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Quite cloudy golden with an off white head. A candy aroma. I taste the orange zest from the peels and the sweetness. I kind of wish it had a little more going on. But it is unique and tasty.

BridgePort Stumptown Tart Cherry Saison
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Amber in hue and generally clear even after rolling the bottle for sediment. An off white head is one finger plus. Aroma is cherry and sweet malts. Flavor is caramel malts first with those cherries. It really isnít tart but is pleasant. Earthiness and gentle bitterness. A third through the cherries settle and the saison flavors emerge and they seem to be classic. Malts also seem to be something like in an amber. Alcohol is tasted mid glass. At the finish the beer became quite sweet and syrupy with a bit of herbal on top.

BridgePort Stumptown Oatmeal Red Ale (ORA)
Bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear medium red, with a thin white head that fades immediately. Nose is a very faint, almost imperceptible, aroma of malt. Taste is a faint caramel note which is overpowered with citrus hop notes. Leaves an off aftertaste. Not worth buying again.

A decent Tripel, smells better then it tastes. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Smells great, citrus and lots of herbs. That doesn't come out in the taste though. Fairly standard Tripel. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BridgePort Sirenís Sound
22 oz bomber purchased from Rothís Sunnyside Market in S.Salem OR $5.99 Pours a pitch black colour with a perfect looking dense, creamy inch high tan head. Aromas of cream, iced coffee and nicer milk chocolate, some treacle and ash. Taste similar to the aromas but with a nice touch of licorice , Mouth feel quite thin, but OK, for style and the alcohol is well hidden but lends to a dry end which in turn helps with drinking. I actually think this is a very nice entry level Imperial Stout,

BridgePort Kingpin Double Red Ale
Iíve been drinking beers and ales for over 48 years and I love my reds. This is worst red ale Iíve 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.

BridgePort Kingpin Double Red Ale
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 itís otherwise a lot of fun.

111216. Bottle from Beer Cartel. This was a good beer that ticked all of the boxes for me. Sweet orange peel aroma with that sweetness coming through into the flavour. The sweetness didnít dominate the malt or hops but complimented them. Refreshing with a sweet finish.

Pours murky orange with plenty of floaties which I love. Decent white head seems to last. Only light aroma get more grain than citrus. Flavor has that sinature bridgeport taste light on the hops. A nice juiciness not overwhelming. Would like some bitterness to compliment but drinkable. Not bad.

BridgePort Cream Ale
271116. This is my first Bridgeport Brewing beer in quite a while as I havenít seen their beers around this part of the world for a while. You donít really see too many Australian breweries brewing cream ales. This is a very good beer, clean and refreshing. Orange in colour with not much head to speak of. In the mouth the beer is full bodied and smooth with crisp clean finish. As the label says this beer is easy rolliní and sippiní. Finishes slightly sweet rather than bitter and the combination of malt and hops makes for a wll balanced beer.

BridgePort Hop Harvest 2016
Highly carbonated, caramel foam head. Caramel malt nose accompanied by an airy hop leafyness and a bitter soapy note. C, andi apple body, and not nearly as hoppy as I expected from a "hop harvest" monikered beer. Some spiced gum drop notes throughout. Grainy bitterness. Nice flavor, but on the sweet side.
