3.71/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an ever-so-slightly chill-hazed honey color with 3 fingers of ivory colored head. Clears nicely, great head retention& lacing

S: Biscuitty malt, mown hay, breadyness

T: Follows the nose, some grassy notes & tangerine up front. More biscuitty malt, dryness & a touch of floral hops as this warms, along with some grain husk notes. Finishes dry with some aspirin notes

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, pretty good balance, gets a bit too bitter as it warms

An old school APA, started strong, but didn't quite finish that way, worth a try though

Pours light copper with some haze. The slight bubbly head disappeared pretty fast. Some lacing. Some floral hops and caramel malt smell. Tastes of hay, fruit and flowers, with a bit of a metallic bitterness. Mouthfeel is fairly light. Very crisp. An interesting beer that would be nice on a summer afternoon.

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.

This beer was really fun. No other way to describe it. I'm not a huge Bridgeport fan, but you can tell they had fun creating this beer. It threw me off because the flavor was somewhat dull upfront with a light hop profile, but the finish is just plain fun. LOTS of fruit notes, particularly mango/melon. It was completely unexpected, but made for a very sessionable beer. The rest of the beer (smell, appearance, mouthfeel) was nothing out of this world, but I'd recommend grabbing a sixer of this simply for the finish alone. Looking forward to the rest in this limited release series.

12 oz single bought from Fred Meyer in North Salem. $1.19 Nice golden coloured ale with an inch thick off white head. Handsome. WEll hopped aroma the crystal hops are not my absolute favourite but this is fine enough. Taste is also nice with good lemon hints..tastes very fresh. Malts are there but in the back. Simple but nice. Good palate properly carbonated and very likable A nice simple APA..would do great in June. I think this is a return to form by Bridgeport...look forward to more in the series.

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.

12oz from the COOP... Pours a fairly clear pale orange... Nice white head with good lacing.

Nose is interesting mix of grassy and slightly floral/melon hoppiness... pale malt essence mixes well with the grassy notes and helps amplify the fruitiness... a bit more herbaceous with warmth.

Flavor has a more pronounced melon/tropical fruit hoppiness.. but a residual cut hay/grass element is present too... Some spicy/herbal notes rise up as the glass warms.

Pretty standard in body and carbonation.

Okay pale ale... Good use of a PNW hop variety.

3.75's across the board.
