12 oz bottle poured into an imperial pint.
5.2% ABV

A - A tall cap of white foam rises from being poured straight into the glass. Slow to vacate, fed by strong carbonation, and leaving it's presence all over the pint, the white suds rest on the slightly hazed, muted goldenrod-colored beer beautifully.

S - "Aaah"are the first things past my lips with one whiff of Trilogy #1. Citrusy and refreshing, the aroma presents a welcome burst of hops that showcase lemon rind, fresh-cut grass, suggestions of tropical fruit, and floral hints held together by a smooth and simple pale maltiness.

T - Citrus and tropical fruit pull from aroma to flavor in BridgePort's first Trilogy series beer but the bulk of the flavor revolves around the cereal grainy pale malt base that offers light flaky biscuit notes and a touch of honey.

M - Nicely carbonated, incredibly smooth, easy drinking, and finished with a wonderful level of dry, hoppy bitterness, this pale ale is quite sessionable and worthy of many pairings.

O - The first installment of BridgePort's Trilogy series, a Crystal dry-hopped pale ale, opens with a boisterous hop aroma that becomes a bit more conservative in flavor, mellowing out for a smooth, balanced, and drinkable beer. This tasty pale ale has "pairing" written all over it; it would compliment just about any pub fare you could throw at it as well as a handful of cheeses. A nice start to their 30th year!

Bridgeport's tapered 12oz bottle served in pint glass. Beer pours pale golden in color with an impressive white head. Big, super fruity, fresh hop aroma. Really, this smells like a bowl of oranges. But this is no IBU monster. Just totally respectable American pale ale with a serious load of dry hopping. The beer is not totally dried out and leaves my palate a little bit sweet, though maybe that's just because I'm expecting a beer this aromatic to be more bitter. Still, I think this is solidly sessionable.

Light honey-colored body with lots of effervescence and a very thick, very white, creamy head. Produces an interesting light lemon and dry hay aroma; mild floral sweetness. Taste comes across with a slight biscuit-y graininess and low-key sweetness, all balanced with a smooth hop bitterness throughout. Medium bodied; clean and dry finish.

A mild yet tasty beer with a nice combination of balance and depth. It's easy drinking and not overpowering in any one area. I see it as a nice alternative to heavily hopped IPAs as this particular offering gently pulls you in with multifaceted aroma and taste experiences while leaving you satisfied overall. Very nice offering.

12oz bottle served in a DFH IPA glass.

A - Pours a hazy golden amber with a firm white head. Good retention and lacing.

S - Strong spicy and floral hops, lavender, grapefruit oil, bready malts.

T - Spicy bitterness, pale malts, orange and grapefruit, melon rind, some tropical fruit, the bitterness is somewhat chalky. The hops are almost as bold in the flavor as the nose. Herbal/floral hops dominate the dry finish.

M - Medium body, ample carbonation, smooth and wet with a dry finish.

A spicy Pale ale that packs in the flavor. There's really nothing bad to say about this beer. If you don't like floral/herbal hops you probably won't like this.
