12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My first new beer from Bridgeport in quite sometime. The first in their trilogy of 30th anniversary beers. Acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.
Poured into a Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a nice bright juicy orange colored body, lightly cloudy with some sediment visible twirling in the glass. Two fingers of fluffy off-white head that leaves behind nice fat fluffy lacing. Looks very nice.
S - The aroma is pretty light. Some citrus / orange pith, mandarin jam sort of qualities, herbal, lemongrass, bready malt, & earthy yeast.
T - Taste follows the nose - simple and traditional, but drinkable and delicious. Light citrus, orange, grapefruit, piney hops, paired nicely with bready biscuit malts.
M - The feel is crisp and clean, medium-light bodied with mild carbonation. Grapefruit & pine resins lingering on the aftertaste.
Overall, I found it to be a very enjoyable offering. Simple in it's approach, but a solid example of the style. I'd be interested to try the other two beers in this series.
Bridgeport Trilogy 1 Crystal Dry-Hopped Pale Ale ---4/5.

Appearance - burnt orange color that you would hope to see with some decent amount of head.
Smell - sweet hop aroma all over this one. interesting smell
Taste - definitely a unique hop flavor to this one. at first it is sweet and then just a little overwhelming for me.
Mouthfeel - nice and smooth, but still an interesting flavor to end the beer. nothing special

Had this on cask at the brewery in Portland.
Probably one of the best English style bitters that I've had outside of London. Having it on cask brought out the strengths of the beer nicely, I think.
Slightly hazy light copper in color.
Nice floral hop aroma with some toasted malt sweetness.
Beautifully balanced; hop bitterness backed with rounded, biscuity malt, finishes with pleasantly dry hop taste.
An imperial pint of this went down like buttah, as we say in Boston.
