Pours a half finger of head on a hazy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is quite nice: grapefruit and orange.
The taste starts with a jab of lemon bitterness then lightens up a bit in the middle, finishes with a strong lemon and pine bitterness. Nice profile.
The texture is crisp with some nice fizz.
Great aroma and good tasting.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Having downed quite a few cinematic trilogies in my day, it's about time I took on one from the brewing world. This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a short finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises orange zest, apricot jam, light pine resin, and a touch of caramel in the distance. The taste takes a strange turn, unfortunately, opting for a surreal focus on month-old ruby red grapefruit rind mixed with cabbage greens and dried honey. Nothing about this flavor combination is in any way good. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid-ish feel. Sadly, the aftertaste lingers, providing me with more than enough guilt and remorse for having even sampled this garbage. Overall, a good idea and a good smell don't translate into a tasty beer by any metric. Now I'm not even sure if I wanna give the other two entries a try when they appear...

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy, medium copper amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt, grassy and lightly citrus hops. Flavor follows, with biscuit malt, grassy and citrus hops, light melon fruit, flavor falls off mid-taste, but recovers to reveal some mild fruit and lingering tea and grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied. Classic pale ale profile with a good balance between grassy and lightly citrus hops and biscuit malt. Flavor is mellow but a satisfactory variety of hop flavors. Crystal hops are kind of old fashioned now, so it was interesting to taste them again and it does bring back memories of early craft ales.

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.
