3.4/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Poured a golden yellow in color. Thin white head that some residual lacing.Bottle conditioning yeast left some residual yeast in glass.

S: Moderate aroma. Very floral but not so much citrus, grassy aroams.

T: Bitterness is surprisingly moderate. Was expecting more hop and the bready yeast flavour is upfront. Bottle conditioning takes to much away from the bitterness of what the IPA should be.

M: Unexpected light body. Was expecting bottle conditioning to add fuller body & mouthfeel.

D: The yeasty flavours take away from the hop & malt. Typically I like bottle conditioningas it adds an element of body & flavour but it didnt work for me on this beer.

Came in last of 7 IPA's. Bridgeprt makes solid beer but I wasnt particularily fond of this especially in direct comparison to other IPA's

3.83/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Julian code reads 09347 (i.e. bottled on April 3, '14)

Appearance - Pours a hazy amber orange with an off-white finger width head. Fair retention results in a broken layer of suds across the surface. Lacing is fair, mostly spotty, and holds with good stick.

Smell - Equal notes of orange hop character and bready malts, along with some peppery spice.

Taste - Follows the nose. Orange notes and a bitey, peppery spice backed by an enormous amount of bready maltiness. Hints of pine in the finish to ride along with a low level of orange pith bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body with a fair to lively level of carbonation. Goes down easy with a nice, crisp, semi-dry finish.

Overall - This may have been an amazing IPA back in 1995, but times have changed. Most would consider this an APA by today's standards, and I couldn't disagree. It's a really nice, drinkable beer, but nothing close to what's expected of the style in this age of hop bomb madness; truly a victim of time.
