2.53/5  rDev -29.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12-oz. bottle into my Terrapin pint glass.

Appearance: Amber with a two-finger white head. Pretty good lacing. Good retention. Far and away the best part of this whole beer.

Smell: Uh... kind of skunky. I checked the bottle for an expiration date, but found none, so I'm going to have to assume that this is just how the beer smells. It's kind of metallic with not nearly the amount of hop aroma you'd expect, if we're going by the rather boastful label.

Taste: Not even average. Hops are definitely here, but unfortunately they provide more bitterness than flavor, and that is just not a good thing. Hops have a wonderful taste, so where is it? There's a light, biscuity aftertaste of malts, but it's too little and too late.

Mouthfeel: Rather dry and, again, metallic. It's not really offensive though, just average.

Drinkability: Bah. No, I wouldn't want another one of these. In fact, this beer is pissing me off a little. I had hope for this one, and it let me down. They'd better be a bit more careful throwing around the magical 'h' word, because some of us out here genuinely enjoy them, and savor beers that put them to good use.

Better luck next time. Maybe BridgePort makes better bread than beer?

Nothing special but the color is awesome.Smells like an IPA bitter and piny.Taste is a basic blend of hops and possible malt and licorice but Im not sure.Could be better if it was a bit sweeter.Again nothing special and most likely will not purchase again.

3.51/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A pretty dark amber appearance in the glass. Starts with a Thin, dissipating head, and with unremarkable lacing. Hops on the nose. Piney, peppery, and spicy with a bitter finish. A touch of sweet malt. A solid but forgettable brew. Worth a try but will probably not revisit.
