Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Having downed quite a few cinematic trilogies in my day, it's about time I took on one from the brewing world. This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a short finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises orange zest, apricot jam, light pine resin, and a touch of caramel in the distance. The taste takes a strange turn, unfortunately, opting for a surreal focus on month-old ruby red grapefruit rind mixed with cabbage greens and dried honey. Nothing about this flavor combination is in any way good. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid-ish feel. Sadly, the aftertaste lingers, providing me with more than enough guilt and remorse for having even sampled this garbage. Overall, a good idea and a good smell don't translate into a tasty beer by any metric. Now I'm not even sure if I wanna give the other two entries a try when they appear...

Pours light copper with some haze. The slight bubbly head disappeared pretty fast. Some lacing. Some floral hops and caramel malt smell. Tastes of hay, fruit and flowers, with a bit of a metallic bitterness. Mouthfeel is fairly light. Very crisp. An interesting beer that would be nice on a summer afternoon.

12oz bottle $8.49 per sixer. Orange and completely hazy. Aroma is lemony with hints of water crackers, just ok. Flavor is more lemon with this odd aftertaste that's sort of dirty and I get it from Bridgeport IPA too. Overall a very so-so pale ale, I'd take a Sierra Nevada over this any and every day.

Pours into a nonic a dull honey tinged golden with a nice sticky full one finger white head that leaves two broken rings of lace as it settles slowly into a frothy mass.Caramel/biscuit malt mainly stands out in the nose with light leafy hops,dry-hopped maybe but lightly hopped at that.Flavors have almost and English flare to them with biscuit malts and leafy hops the main flavor profile although it does get sweet after awhile.The body needs a little beefing up and the flavor does as well,for a 30th anniversary trilogy Bridgeport leaves a little desired for their first of the trifecta.

12 ounce bottle - $2.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Lightly hazed, deep golden body with a medium-sized (but lasting), standard, white head.

Smell: Half of a sweet, simple cookie, a smidgen of grain. Tropical citrus, hints of flowers, resin.

Taste: Starts with a light, lightly sweet cookish maltiness, then, a sip of grapefruit juice infused with florals and a bit of resin. Slight undercurrent of yeast. Moderate bitterness. Drying, citrusy, bitterish on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. A skosh beyond medium carbonation.

Overall: Wasn't too enamored with it. Maybe it will be the Phantom Menace of the trilogy!

Apparently, this beer is retired? I just got it in a mixed case with a sixer of 3 other selections from Bridgeport. So, maybe its old. Or, maybe they're brewing it again?
Anyhow, not too impressive, and I really like Bridgeport's offerings.
