Ok, sports fans (or anyone who actually reads these reviews), this is my favorite beer in the whole world. Light, crisp and with a definitely strong hop note. IMHO, Bridgeport nailed it with this IPA. For my taste, it's got a great aroma and the flavor is perfect. A lot of IPAs and many microbrews, suffer from a pretty blah after taste that I've never quite been able to figure out. In some cases, this is clearly intended to keep their beer as close to the mid-ground (think Bud) as possible while still having enough flavor to lable it IPA, Stout, or whatever. Bridgeport didn't do that. This is an honest IPA with a unique balance on the palate and great smell.

This one is my daily drinker. Probably one of the best beers I've ever had. Nice small head on top that tends to decorate the glass with a sheething lace. Wonderful balance with a distinct citrusy after taste. Semi-cloudy copper colored. This is one hoppy beer that belongs in every hopheads top-ten list.

A taste from hop-heaven. This beer has a wonderful citrus aroma, beautiful color, and compliments whatever you're eating.
The slightly hazy golden pour from the cask means there's a slightly yeastly flavor, which is why we drink cask in the first place. The maltiness is that of a typical pale ale, which suits the ale quite well.
Bridgeport has maganed to get the draft-in-a-bottle taste much better than Guinness (bless their hearts). The bottle carries the same fresh hop aroma and taste.

I've had many, many respected IPAs -- all of the standards, Stone, Pelican, the Dogfish Head 90 Minute, even the 120 Minute. But this is still my favorite, and perhaps my favorite beer in existence. Bridgeport understands something many modern brewers don't -- the value of subtlety, of balance of flavor. While so many breweries go for the limits -- the incredible extremes of taste, be it hoppiness, maltiness, bitter or sweet -- the Bridgeport IPA shows a beautiful blend of citrusy hops, bready yeast, and sweet, mellow malt, with no aspect of flavor overpowering any other. I would have this over the Ruination any day.

Overated? Bland? Flat? This is a wonderful beer, on regular tap its great with pizza and very refreshing with perhaps not the hop bite that is expected in the Northwest. From the Firkin it is great, with floral overtones and a remarkable aroma. I love this beer.

This is by far my favorite IPA and the benchmark by which I compare all others, and I came across it by accident while looking for a place to eat in Portland. While it is good from the bottle it seems to have a hight IBU from the tap. It has good color and aroma that has a touch of citrus. The bitterness is perfectly balanced with the flavors. Unfortunately I no longer live in Portland and have moved to a state, Nevada, that doesn't carry any of the beers from the Bridgeport Brewery, but this one is good enough to travel for. If you know of a better IPA please let me know so I can try it.

I have had this beer three ways, cask-conditioned, on tap, and from the bottle and is definately best at the brewery cask-conditioned. The appearance is wonderful, exactly what I want from an IPA. The smell is wonderful, with a great hop aroma that has a hint od citrus in it. This is combined with a wonderful taste that leaves the mouth wanting more. The beer is dry with just a hint of sweetness that is perfectly coupled with a lite citrus flavor. Overall a wonderful beer that is great for all events.

It's different than most of the IPAs I frequent . . . Widmer Bros. Red Hook, Pyramid . . .
It's really quite smooth with a nice flavor...
I usually trade off between this and Broken Halo IPA depending on price <$6> a sixer..
It seems more consistent than some. You buy a 6-pack and it tastes the same each time. Or maybe my "taster" is broken once in a while.
