Poured a hazy mix of amber and honey colored body. The one finger head held its own for a decent amount of time before dropping to a cloud that floats atop the beer. Nice lacing, too.
S- Hoppy, earthy/grassy, orange, apricot and spices.
T- Its a bitter hop festival in this beer. Finishes with an orange kick and plenty of earthyness. Mostly, it follows closely behind the smell. Tastes more like an APA then an IPA.
M- medium bodied, and ends with a dry finish.
Solid brew from Bridgeport. Even though it was more on the APA side it was still enjoyable enough to to sip on.

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.
