5/5  rDev +39.3%

Wonderful hop presence, both odor and sharp flavor. Exactly what I want in an APA.

This beer has a very fruity aroma, like apricots, but a crisp hoppy taste. This is one of few beers I have had in a while that really made me raise my eyebrow and want to buy again rather than just keep trying new beers.

Poured 12oz bottle into pint glass. Smooth and sessionable for an APA. Mild head and good lacing. Would like to try on draft; would buy again in bottle. Hoppy but not overpowering. Very solid Pale Ale.

12 oz bottle poured into an imperial pint.
5.2% ABV

A - A tall cap of white foam rises from being poured straight into the glass. Slow to vacate, fed by strong carbonation, and leaving it's presence all over the pint, the white suds rest on the slightly hazed, muted goldenrod-colored beer beautifully.

S - "Aaah"are the first things past my lips with one whiff of Trilogy #1. Citrusy and refreshing, the aroma presents a welcome burst of hops that showcase lemon rind, fresh-cut grass, suggestions of tropical fruit, and floral hints held together by a smooth and simple pale maltiness.

T - Citrus and tropical fruit pull from aroma to flavor in BridgePort's first Trilogy series beer but the bulk of the flavor revolves around the cereal grainy pale malt base that offers light flaky biscuit notes and a touch of honey.

M - Nicely carbonated, incredibly smooth, easy drinking, and finished with a wonderful level of dry, hoppy bitterness, this pale ale is quite sessionable and worthy of many pairings.

O - The first installment of BridgePort's Trilogy series, a Crystal dry-hopped pale ale, opens with a boisterous hop aroma that becomes a bit more conservative in flavor, mellowing out for a smooth, balanced, and drinkable beer. This tasty pale ale has "pairing" written all over it; it would compliment just about any pub fare you could throw at it as well as a handful of cheeses. A nice start to their 30th year!
