A> Not the best appearance, about 1-finger of head that quickly dissipated and looked more like the head from a carbonated soda. The brew itself is clear and rusty looking.
S> Smells pretty good, biscuity malts and a tropical/melony hop aroma
T> Hops come through much stronger on the tongue. A really nice play of hops that exhibit mainly tropical/melon flavors and just a bit of citrus on the finish. The malt also makes itself known, the biscuity flavor from the nose comes through but I also taste really dark/roasty malts. Finishes hop dominant without being overwhelming.
M> Feels good on the tongue. Nice carbonation and not too thin, especially given that it's a pale ale. Nothing outstanding but solid none the less.
O> This is an interesting beer. The flavors are all pretty big without being overwhelming in the least. I can see this brew turning someone on to craft brew for the first time, but not really anything to write home about. Considering this is the 30th anniversary ale from Bridgeport, this is pretty dissapointing.

This is a medium amber-colored beer with a big but very quickly fading head of airy foam. The nose offers pleasant notes of citrus hops, with a touch of sweet malt. The taste is fully of citrus hop flavor, to a nearly unpleasant degree. There's little to balance it out. Malt is barely present. It's really not a strong enough beer to carry off the flavor and aroma hops, in the same way some recent "session IPAs" have fallen short.
Just not a very drinkable beer. Fortunately, it's a one-off that will never appear again.
