22oz bottle with no date imprint, but I believe this is a 2019 bottling. I can see particulate matter floating around in the bottle, but my first pour is only slightly turbid, yellow in color, with fine soda bubbles. I'm not picking up much in the way of aroma at all. But the flavor is like a glass of cold pineapple juice. Sweet tropical punch with just enough edge (alpha + ethanol) to keep it from coming across as cloying. Overall it comes across as neither sugary nor bitter, so the balance is impressive in that regard, but flavor-wise, it's definitely a sweet take on a 6.9% IPA.

Bridgeport Brewing Hop Hero IPA Series. East Coast Style Hazy IPA. An East Coast style, now made better on the West coast.

update: just saw that Bridgeport has closed. This was not a 2019 bottling, but surely a clearance of unsold inventory!

I haven’t had a Bridgeport beer in years but we got skunked by a bunch of closed breweries on New Year’s Day and ended up here. With low expectations I ordered this with lunch and enjoyed this beer. It seems like there might be room for a distinction between a hazy ipa and a New England ipa. Maybe it’s because I live in the Pacific Northwest but for me a hazy ipa falls in between the juice bomb low bitterness of a New England and a more bitter nw ipa. Does it need its own style? As a New England it falls short for me but I did enjoy it.

Nice looking NEIPA. Hazy amber, dense head, sticky lacing. Light hoppiness on the nose, mostly piney with a bit of citrus. Taste is .... Different, not in a bad way, either. A lighter mouthfeel, a bit of dryness and a hoppy finish. Label claims a different recipe than most, which may be the ticket here to good drink ability with mid-level ABV. Give them credit for going down a little different path.

The beer pours out a hazy dark golden orange color, with lots of sediment and 1 finger of off white head--------------- the aromas are of orange, orange peel, lemon/lime and floral notes---------------- the flavors are of orange for days followed by some grapefruit, pine and sweet malt, the beer has a medium mouthfeel with a light bitterness on the finish------------------ overall this beer was good - man it's been a minute since I have had a bridgeport beer, I was suprized to see them doing a hazy ipa and they didn't do half bad

Copper-orange color, creamy white head, medium haze. Sweet malt aroma first, followed up with floral and somewhat woody aromas and then bursting citrus aroma. Juicy flavor, like orange juice blended with mangoes; zesty finish. Medium bodied and smooth, high carbonation level, alcohol burn on the finish. Bitterness is low but lingers. Overall, aromas, flavors, and mouthfeel are good except for that alcohol burn. Makes me not want to finish.

Very hazy golden copper colour, with huge fluffy white head.

Flavors are fruity but it’s very rind-y. Citrus is the primary note, and the body is pretty light but fuzzy.

Pretty good & very sessionable.
