3.5/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The appearance has a nice golden amber color that comes across semi-transparent allowing a delicate carbonation to be seen rising. There’s a one finger white foamy head that levels out and leaves some nice adequate lacing sticking finely to the sides of the glass. The smell has a nice sweet malt base coming through over top of some bitter citra hops. For the most part, I like it. The taste is mainly sweet through the malts as the hops tend to take somewhat of a backseat here. There’s a super dry somewhat malty aftertaste that leads to a dry bitter finish. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium in body and has a semi-decent sessionability surrounding it. Overall, I say this was a pretty good beer worthy of having again.

Pours with medium silky and lasting head. Aroma is mostly citrus (grapefruit), taste is sharp and mildly sweet, tangy like grapefruit, overall mouthfeel seems kind of watery, but not too noticeable due to the excellent and tart taste. Hoppy for a pale ale, but delicious.

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.

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.

Looks like a watered down guiness. Smell, is pleasant sweet apricot hoppy. Moderate carbination, but lacking mouth feel. Glad I tried it, not sure if I'd get it again.

On-tap at Three Cellars, Franklin, WI:

Pours copper-amber with a creamy thin white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is tea-like, herbal, citric.

The taste is herbal/citric, grainy backbone. Balanced finish.

It is smooth and easy to drink. Not too thin.

For as many hops that were used it is a very balanced beer. A solid APA.

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 pours hazy pale amber with a slight pinkish tint. Decent head with very good lacing.

Nice, appropriately hoppy aroma. Flavor follows but is stronger, with a bolder hop presence and enough sweet malts to temper the bitterness. At least average hop presence for an APA with mild bitterness.

Feel: lively but not harsh, medium-high carbonation. Medium body.

O: Excellent for style; get one while you can. I look forward to the remaining 2 pieces of the trilogy.
