The Trilogy No. 1 Pale Ale from Bridgeport is decent and quite sessionable. The beer poured a slightly hazy golden with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent carries a fresh hop zeal that has a hint of potpourri. The taste is evenly balanced and crisp. Floral base with pine twang makes it worth while. The mouthfeel is light to medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a good beer and would recommend it.

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.
