4.33/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a soft, warm gold with a hint of amber. A dense off-white head begins two full fingers thick before dropping to a solid collar. Fair amount of lacing on the glass. With a simple swirl of the glass, the head resets itself, thick and creamy.

Smell: The aroma is wonderful, with a sharp layer of citric (grapefruit and mango) hops over a thin foundation of crackery malt. Several minutes have now passed with me swirling and smelling, swirling and smelling...

Taste: Firmly bitter, but not over-the-top like so many American IPA's. The hops are definitely the main attraction in this brew! Lots of bitter, citrusy goodness, with grapefruit, mango, and lemon being the most notably. There's a decent backbone of crackery malt, but it's just barely on the thin side. Finishes long and bitter...

Mouthfeel: Like all of Bridgeport's brews I've tried, this one is extremely crisp and clean on the palate. Finishes with just enough dryness and carbonation to scrub my mouth clean.

Drinkability: While it's lacking just a bit in the malt department, this is a very well done IPA. I would love to try this on cask...I find myself saying that with all of Bridgeport's beers. Good stuff!
